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
Higher clock speed 2.2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 20% higher clock speed
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 3 MB Around 2.8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 6 vs 2 Three times as many cores; run more applications at once
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.67 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core Around 2.8x more l2 cache per core
More threads 6 vs 4 2 more threads
Newer Dec, 2012 vs Jun, 2012 Release date 5 months later
