Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 2.17 GHz More than 65% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better PassMark score 4,326 vs 393 More than 11x better PassMark score
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,377 vs 612 2.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.29 GHz vs 2.44 GHz More than 75% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.71 GHz vs 2.17 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Sep, 2002 Release date over 10 years later
