Report a correction
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm 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
Significantly better turbo clock speed 1,000 MHz vs 720 MHz Around 40% better turbo clock speed
Higher GPU clock speed 650 MHz vs 515 MHz More than 25% higher GPU clock speed
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,214 vs 995 More than 20% better PassMark (Single core) score
Better 3DMark11 physics score 3,000 vs 2,400 25% better 3DMark11 physics score

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
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Significantly better performance per dollar 6.7 pt/$ vs 4.36 pt/$ Around 55% better performance per dollar
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.83 GHz vs 2.44 GHz More than 15% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
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)
