Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.43 GHz vs 3.23 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 98.28W More than 45% lower typical power consumption
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 37.88 $/year 2.4x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 93.47 $/year Around 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Higher Maximum operating temperature 70 °C vs 69.1 °C Almost the same
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.7 GHz vs 3.23 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2013 vs Jan, 2011 Release date over 2 years later
