Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 250 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 1.5 GHz vs 0.7 GHz Around 2.2x higher clock speed
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
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Sep, 2012 vs Oct, 1999 Release date over 13 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
