Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
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
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 1.6 GHz vs 1.07 GHz Around 50% higher clock speed
Higher turbo clock speed 2.48 GHz vs 1.87 GHz Around 35% higher turbo clock speed
Higher GPU clock speed 320 MHz vs 166 MHz Around 95% higher GPU clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.48 GHz vs 1.07 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More number of displays supported 3 vs 2 1 more number of displays supported
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Jan, 2010 Release date over 6 years later
Lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 14.63W 3x lower typical power consumption
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.6 GHz vs 1.07 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 15.77 $/year 3x lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 4.34 $/year 3x lower annual home energy cost
