Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 2.3 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.13 GHz vs 2.31 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 1,767.5 vs 1,030 More than 70% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.39 GHz vs 2.3 GHz More than 45% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
