Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.25 MB 24x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.5x higher clock speed
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 6 vs 1 5 more threads
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
