Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 1.6 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better performance per watt 11.43 pt/W vs 6.2 pt/W Around 85% better performance per watt
Higher GPU clock speed 320 MHz vs 200 MHz 60% higher GPU clock speed
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.48 GHz vs 1.41 GHz More than 75% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 12.19W 2.5x lower typical power consumption
Lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 13.14 $/year 2.5x lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 3.61 $/year 2.5x lower annual home energy cost
Slightly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.6 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
