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
More l3 cache 3 MB vs 1 MB 3x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 3x more l3 cache per core
Better 3DMark06 CPU score 2,229 vs 1,358.5 Around 65% better 3DMark06 CPU score
Better PassMark score 2,293 vs 1,304 More than 75% better PassMark score
Higher Maximum Operating Temperature 105 °C vs 100 °C 5% higher Maximum Operating Temperature
Better performance per watt 19.56 pt/W vs 11.11 pt/W More than 75% better performance per watt
