Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 101,750 MB/s vs 155.6 MB/s Around 654x better geekbench 3 AES single core score
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 73 °C vs 55 °C Around 35% higher Maximum operating temperature
More l3 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l3 cache per core
Lower typical power consumption 77.19W vs 83.69W Around 10% lower typical power consumption
Newer Dec, 2008 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 2 years later
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.38 GHz vs 2.6 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual home energy cost 22.89 $/year vs 24.81 $/year Around 10% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 83.22 $/year vs 90.23 $/year Around 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
