Report a correction
Much better 3DMark06 CPU score 20.1 vs 12.9 More than 55% better 3DMark06 CPU score
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much better CompuBench 1.5 face detection score 4.58 mPixels/s vs 1.11 mPixels/s More than 4x better CompuBench 1.5 face detection score
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x 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
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More number of displays supported 3 vs 2 1 more number of displays supported
Significantly better performance per watt 11.43 pt/W vs 7.05 pt/W More than 60% better performance per watt
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Jul, 2014 Release date over 1 years later
