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
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 2.5 GHz 40% higher clock speed
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 2 MB 4x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.75 GHz vs 2.56 GHz More than 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.33 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core Around 2.8x more l3 cache per core
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Apr, 2008 Release date over 4 years later
More cores 6 vs 4 2 more cores; run more applications at once
Lower typical power consumption 77.19W vs 85.31W Around 10% lower typical power consumption
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.82 GHz vs 2.5 GHz Around 95% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More threads 6 vs 4 2 more threads
Lower annual home energy cost 22.89 $/year vs 25.29 $/year Around 10% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 83.22 $/year vs 91.98 $/year Around 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
