Much higher turbo clock speed 3.8 GHz vs 0 GHz Compared to all cpus, 3.8 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
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 lower typical power consumption 36.56W vs 152.93W 4.2x lower typical power consumption
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much lower annual home energy cost 10.84 $/year vs 54.06 $/year 5x lower annual home energy cost
Slightly more l3 cache 8 MB vs 6 MB Around 35% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 39.42 $/year vs 152.42 $/year 3.9x lower annual commercial energy cost
More l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core Around 35% more l3 cache per core
Newer Dec, 2012 vs Nov, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
Better performance per watt 2.62 pt/W vs 1.08 pt/W Around 2.5x better performance per watt
Higher Maximum operating temperature 69.1 °C vs 62 °C More than 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
