Much better performance per watt 13.15 pt/W vs 3.53 pt/W Around 3.8x better performance per watt
Significantly better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 4,416 vs 2,114 More than 2x better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
More number of displays supported 3 vs 2 1 more number of displays supported
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.39 GHz vs 1.6 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 13.81W 2.8x lower typical power consumption
Newer Jul, 2016 vs Sep, 2012 Release date over 3 years later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Slightly better geekbench 3 single core score 1,395 vs 1,225 Around 15% better geekbench 3 single core score
Lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 4.1 $/year 2.8x lower annual home energy cost
