Report a correction
Much higher turbo clock speed 3.7 GHz vs 0 GHz Compared to all cpus, 3.7 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Significantly higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.2 GHz Around 50% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.7 GHz vs 2.21 GHz Around 70% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 72.6 °C vs 55 °C More than 30% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.21 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 90% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 4 vs 1 3 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
More l3 cache 12 MB vs 6 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 8 vs 4 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Lower typical power consumption 69.06W vs 77.19W More than 10% lower typical power consumption
Lower annual commercial energy cost 74.46 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 20.48 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 10% lower annual home energy cost
