Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Newer Apr, 2008 vs Apr, 2004 Release date over 4 years later
Lower typical power consumption 60.94W vs 68.25W More than 10% lower typical power consumption
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Lower annual home energy cost 18.07 $/year vs 20.24 $/year More than 10% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 65.7 $/year vs 73.58 $/year More than 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
