Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 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
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer Feb, 2014 vs Jun, 2012 Release date over 1 years later
