Report a correction
Much better 3DMark06 CPU score 80.5 vs 27.7 Around 3x better 3DMark06 CPU score
Much higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 1.33 GHz More than 3x higher clock speed
Much higher turbo clock speed 4.2 GHz vs 2.16 GHz Around 95% higher turbo clock speed
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 2,349 vs 382 Around 6.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better PassMark score 11,109 vs 919 More than 12x better PassMark score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.61 GHz vs 2.16 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.77 GHz vs 1.33 GHz More than 3.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Slightly higher GPU clock speed 350 MHz vs 313 MHz More than 10% higher GPU clock speed
Newer Jul, 2015 vs Apr, 2014 Release date over 1 years later
