Intel Ark has all the info. :)
may be but not sure..
That's a good question. I can't find any details online about that. It's got a lower core count at a higher clock speed - and seems to be slightly more expensive. But yeah, I don't know the answer to your question, sorry. It's a good one.
Advanced, maybe?
