Report a correction
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Newer manufacturing process 22 nms vs 32 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 2.1 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,214 vs 993 More than 20% better PassMark (Single core) score
Better 3DMark11 physics score 3,000 vs 2,400 25% better 3DMark11 physics score

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.83 GHz vs 2.45 GHz More than 15% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Marginally newer Mar, 2013 vs Jun, 2012 Release date 8 months later
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.8 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
