Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 8 vs 1 7 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More l3 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.5 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
