Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
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
Higher clock speed 2.7 GHz vs 2.53 GHz More than 5% higher clock speed
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 68.25W Around 25% lower typical power consumption
Newer Aug, 2010 vs Apr, 2004 Release date over 6 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 20.24 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 73.58 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
