Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher clock speed 2.3 GHz vs 1.73 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.81 GHz vs 2.13 GHz More than 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better PassMark score 2,638 vs 323 Around 8.2x better PassMark score
Better PassMark (Single core) score 787 vs 503 More than 55% better PassMark (Single core) score
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.12 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 80% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
