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
More l3 cache 6 MB vs 1 MB 6x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much higher Maximum Operating Temperature 105 °C vs 74 °C More than 40% higher Maximum Operating Temperature
Lower typical power consumption 36.56W vs 81.25W 2.2x lower typical power consumption
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l3 cache per core
Better PassMark score 7,766 vs 4,647 More than 65% better PassMark score
Better 3DMark11 physics score 5,720 vs 3,590 Around 60% better 3DMark11 physics score
Better performance per watt 19.71 pt/W vs 5.27 pt/W Around 3.8x better performance per watt
Better geekbench (64-bit) score 10,808 vs 8,036 Around 35% better geekbench (64-bit) score
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,709 vs 1,462 More than 15% better PassMark (Single core) score
Slightly better PassMark (Overclocked) score 3,563.1 vs 2,959.6 More than 20% better PassMark (Overclocked) score
Lower annual commercial energy cost 39.42 $/year vs 87.6 $/year 2.2x lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 10.84 $/year vs 24.09 $/year 2.2x lower annual home energy cost
