Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 94,100 MB/s vs 47,850 MB/s More than 95% better geekbench 3 AES single core score
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher turbo clock speed 2.5 GHz vs None Compared to all cpus, 2.5 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Significantly higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 1.48 GHz Around 70% higher clock speed
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 3,994 vs 964 Around 4.2x better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
Significantly newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 40 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 4,173 vs 1,022 More than 4x better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
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 (Air) 2.85 GHz vs 1.5 GHz More than 90% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.2 GHz vs 1.48 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
