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
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 1.58 GHz Around 90% higher clock speed
Much better PassMark score 1,750 vs 464 More than 3.8x better PassMark score
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,008 vs 622 More than 60% better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.72 GHz vs 2.04 GHz More than 80% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.04 GHz vs 1.58 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jun, 2009 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 4 years later
