Report a correction
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 higher clock speed 2.8 GHz vs 1.58 GHz More than 75% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 90 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better PassMark score 1,477 vs 464 Around 3.2x better PassMark score
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 849 vs 622 More than 35% better PassMark (Single core) score
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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.26 GHz vs 2.04 GHz Around 60% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.4 GHz vs 1.58 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
