Report a correction
Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 275,600 MB/s vs 34,800 MB/s Around 8x 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
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Significantly newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 2,315 vs 1,263 Around 85% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.19 GHz vs 1.78 GHz Around 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Apr, 2014 vs Feb, 2013 Release date over 1 years later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.83 GHz vs 0.93 GHz More than 95% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
