Much higher turbo clock speed 4.2 GHz vs None Compared to all cpus, 4.2 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Much higher clock speed 3.8 GHz vs 1.9 GHz 2x higher clock speed
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
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 better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.48 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 6,004 vs 2,088 Around 3x better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Much better geekbench 3 single core score 2,093 vs 685 More than 3x better geekbench 3 single core score
Significantly higher GPU clock speed 800 MHz vs 600 MHz Around 35% higher GPU clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly better performance per watt 5.49 pt/W vs 1.71 pt/W Around 3.2x better performance per watt
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.59 GHz vs 1.9 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
