Much 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
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
Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 20% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.49 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly better PassMark (Single core) score 1,257 vs 393 Around 3.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.45 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better PassMark score 1,884 vs 779 Around 2.5x better PassMark score
