Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
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 more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Slightly higher clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 3.4 GHz More than 5% higher clock speed
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.72 GHz vs 4.01 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.81 GHz vs 4.32 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

I ran a few quick benches like the CPU physics test in 3dmark11, and the linx FLOPS test.

The performance of the FX-4100 wasn't awful, but we didn't expect to see the AMD A6-3650 running at 2.6GHz to beat the AMD FX-4100 running at 3.6GHz in benchmarks like POV-Ray and Cinebench!
