Report a correction
Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 79,500 MB/s vs 22.7 MB/s Around 3502.2x better geekbench 3 AES single core score
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x 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
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.19 GHz vs 2.41 GHz More than 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Newer Jul, 2006 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 1 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.45 GHz vs 1.83 GHz Around 90% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better performance per watt 1.18 pt/W vs 0.31 pt/W More than 3.8x better performance per watt
