Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 12.19W vs 47.94W 3.9x lower typical power consumption
More l2 cache 0.5 MB vs 0.25 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 85 °C vs 69 °C Around 25% higher Maximum operating temperature
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better performance per watt 2.19 pt/W vs 0.41 pt/W More than 5.2x better performance per watt
Much lower annual home energy cost 3.61 $/year vs 14.21 $/year 3.9x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 13.14 $/year vs 51.68 $/year 3.9x lower annual commercial energy cost
Slightly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.4 GHz vs 2.21 GHz Around 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Slightly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.6 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
