Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 2 MB 3x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 3 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 35% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 3x more l2 cache per core
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 77.19W More than 30% lower typical power consumption
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.22 GHz vs 2.74 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 72.4 °C vs 55 °C More than 30% higher Maximum operating temperature
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.23 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 90% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jan, 2008 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 1 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 30% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 30% lower annual commercial energy cost
