Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.7 GHz vs 1.47 GHz Around 85% higher clock speed
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 better PassMark score 1,580 vs 344 More than 4.5x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.56 GHz vs 2.11 GHz Around 70% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
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) 3.79 GHz vs 1.47 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
