Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.8 GHz vs 1.2 GHz Around 3.2x higher clock speed
Much higher GPU clock speed 800 MHz vs 200 MHz 4x higher GPU clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.48 GHz vs 0.8 GHz More than 5.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.59 GHz vs 0.8 GHz Around 5.8x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Oct, 2012 vs May, 2010 Release date over 2 years later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
