Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 0.75 GHz More than 4.5x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Newer Sep, 2012 vs Nov, 1999 Release date over 12 years later
