Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 2 MB 3x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 2 GHz 75% higher clock speed
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 1 MB 8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better performance per watt 9.84 pt/W vs 0.76 pt/W Around 13x better performance per watt
More cores 6 vs 2 Three times as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.75 GHz vs 3.03 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly better PassMark score 6,444 vs 1,270 More than 5x better PassMark score
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 6 years later
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.33 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core Around 2.8x more l3 cache per core
More threads 6 vs 2 Three times as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.82 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Higher Maximum operating temperature 62.5 °C vs 55 °C Around 15% higher Maximum operating temperature
