Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.13 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 20% higher clock speed
Much better performance per watt 1.21 pt/W vs 0.6 pt/W More than 2x better performance per watt
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.13 MB/core 8x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Lower typical power consumption 36.56W vs 50.38W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 75 °C vs 70 °C More than 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
Lower annual home energy cost 10.84 $/year vs 14.94 $/year More than 25% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 39.42 $/year vs 54.31 $/year More than 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
