Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.7 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 55% higher clock speed
Much better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 7,520 vs 1,379 Around 5.5x better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Much better performance per watt 9.83 pt/W vs 0.75 pt/W More than 13x better performance per watt
Much better geekbench 3 single core score 2,478 vs 922 Around 2.8x better geekbench 3 single core score
Newer Aug, 2014 vs Sep, 2005 Release date over 8 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.37 GHz vs 2.56 GHz More than 70% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.45 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 85% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
