Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 63,700 MB/s vs 26.3 MB/s More than 2422x better geekbench 3 AES single core score
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
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.54 GHz vs 1.77 GHz Around 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Slightly better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 1,494 vs 1,001 Around 50% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Better performance per watt 2.52 pt/W vs 1.79 pt/W More than 40% better performance per watt
