Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 1 MB l2 cache is just OK
Higher clock speed 2.2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 20% higher clock speed
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 1 MB/core l2 cache per core is just OK
Lower typical power consumption 36.56W vs 50.38W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
Newer Feb, 2007 vs May, 2006 Release date 9 months later
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
