Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.1 GHz vs 2.74 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.2 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
