Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.17 GHz vs 2.77 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 68.25W Around 25% lower typical power consumption
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.61 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 20.24 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 73.58 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
