Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Lower typical power consumption 20.31W vs 28.44W Around 30% lower typical power consumption
Lower annual home energy cost 6.02 $/year vs 8.43 $/year Around 30% lower annual home energy cost
Newer May, 2013 vs Jan, 2013 Release date 3 months later
