Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 3 MB vs 0.5 MB 6x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l3 cache per core
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,764 vs 1,267 Around 40% better PassMark (Single core) score
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Better PassMark score 4,229 vs 2,019 More than 2x better PassMark score
Better geekbench (32-bit) score 5,351 vs 2,715 More than 95% better geekbench (32-bit) score
Better performance per watt 9.86 pt/W vs 5.77 pt/W More than 70% better performance per watt
Slightly lower typical power consumption 44.69W vs 52.81W More than 15% lower typical power consumption
Slightly lower annual commercial energy cost 48.18 $/year vs 56.94 $/year More than 15% lower annual commercial energy cost
Slightly lower annual home energy cost 13.25 $/year vs 15.66 $/year More than 15% lower annual home energy cost

Good looks CPUBoss, glad to know I'm not getting a bad deal in my budget build with the AMD A4 5300, I'll definitely look into a Intel i5 when I have the money. Very satisfied with the AMD though.
