Report a correction
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
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 114.2W 2.2x lower typical power consumption
Higher clock speed 3.7 GHz vs 3.4 GHz Around 10% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 41.8 $/year 2.7x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 111.78 $/year Around 50% lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Jan, 2014 vs Jan, 2011 Release date over 3 years later
