Much more l2 cache 12 MB vs 2 MB 6x 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
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 6x more l2 cache per core
Higher clock speed 2.83 GHz vs 2.5 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Much lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 85.31W Around 40% lower typical power consumption
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 9 months later
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.83 GHz vs 2.5 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
