Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much better PassMark score 6,279 vs 1,170 More than 5.2x better PassMark score
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,825 vs 692 Around 2.8x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 8,908 vs 1,720 Around 5.2x better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l3 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.14 GHz vs 3 GHz Around 5% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.27 GHz vs 2.58 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2013 vs Apr, 2008 Release date over 4 years later
