Report a correction
Much higher turbo clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 0 GHz Compared to all cpus, 3.4 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 102 °C vs 72 °C More than 40% higher Maximum operating temperature
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Lower typical power consumption 28.44W vs 36.56W More than 20% lower typical power consumption
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Lower annual home energy cost 8.43 $/year vs 10.84 $/year More than 20% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 30.66 $/year vs 39.42 $/year More than 20% lower annual commercial energy cost
