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
Higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.7 GHz Around 20% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better 3DMark06 CPU score 2,659.5 vs 1,939 More than 35% better 3DMark06 CPU score
Better PassMark score 2,434 vs 1,578 Around 55% better PassMark score
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2 GHz vs 1.7 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2 GHz vs 1.7 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
