Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 0.06 MB More than 133.2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 0.85 GHz Around 4x higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.61 GHz vs 1.26 GHz Around 3.8x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More cores 8 vs 1 7 more cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.06 MB/core Around 16.8x more l2 cache per core
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.51 GHz vs 0.85 GHz More than 5.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
