Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 35% higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.23 GHz vs 1.76 GHz Around 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More l3 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.5 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Better PassMark (Single core) score 951 vs 655 More than 45% better PassMark (Single core) score
Newer Aug, 2007 vs May, 2006 Release date over 1 years later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.8 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 75% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
