Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 32.5W vs 77.19W 2.4x lower typical power consumption
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
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 3x more l3 cache per core
Much lower annual home energy cost 9.64 $/year vs 22.89 $/year 2.4x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 35.04 $/year vs 83.22 $/year 2.4x lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Apr, 2009 vs Nov, 2007 Release date over 1 years later
