Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 3 MB vs 2 MB 50% more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 2.93 GHz vs 2.4 GHz More than 20% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 3x more l2 cache per core
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 85.31W Around 40% lower typical power consumption
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.85 GHz vs 2.41 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.06 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 70% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Much lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 25.29 $/year Around 40% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 91.98 $/year Around 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Jan, 2009 vs Apr, 2008 Release date 8 months later
