Report a correction
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 2 GHz 25% higher clock speed
Newer manufacturing process 22 nms vs 28 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,313 vs 778 Around 70% better PassMark (Single core) score
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.54 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better PassMark score 3,342 vs 2,438 More than 35% better PassMark score
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.5 GHz vs 2 GHz 25% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
