Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Significantly higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.1 GHz More than 50% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 6 MB vs 2 MB 3x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.99 GHz vs 2.55 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 5,898 vs 3,759 More than 55% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 3x more l3 cache per core
Better geekbench 3 single core score 1,679 vs 1,033 Around 65% better geekbench 3 single core score
Newer Nov, 2009 vs Apr, 2008 Release date over 1 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.14 GHz vs 2.77 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
