Report a correction
Much 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 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
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
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Significantly lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 68.25W Around 25% lower typical power consumption
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 74 °C vs 67.7 °C Around 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.07 GHz vs 3.94 GHz Around 5% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 20.24 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 73.58 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
