Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 1.73 GHz vs 0.8 GHz Around 2.2x higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
