Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 2 MB 4x 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
Much higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 2 GHz 2x higher clock speed
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
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
More cores 8 vs 2 6 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.69 GHz vs 2.66 GHz More than 75% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 8.79 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 4.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 6 years later
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
More l3 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l3 cache per core
Higher Maximum operating temperature 61 °C vs 55 °C More than 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
