Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x higher clock speed
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
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,760 vs 375 Around 4.8x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.51 GHz vs 1.42 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l3 cache per core
Slightly 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
Better geekbench (32-bit) score 5,532 vs 906 More than 6x better geekbench (32-bit) score
Better PassMark score 4,315 vs 691 Around 6.2x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.61 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better performance per watt 11.01 pt/W vs 6.57 pt/W More than 65% better performance per watt
Marginally newer Sep, 2012 vs Jun, 2012 Release date 2 months later
