Much 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
Higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 10% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer Jul, 2014 vs Jun, 2012 Release date over 2 years later
Slightly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Slightly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
