Newer manufacturing process 32 nms vs 90 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Has vitualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,567 vs 694 More than 2.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
Marginally newer Jan, 2011 vs Apr, 2005 Release date over 5 years later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Better PassMark score 3,620 vs 649 More than 5.5x better PassMark score
Better performance per watt 4.6 pt/W vs 1.35 pt/W Around 3.5x better performance per watt
Slightly lower typical power consumption 98.28W vs 105.63W More than 5% lower typical power consumption
Lower annual commercial energy cost 93.47 $/year vs 113.88 $/year Around 20% lower annual commercial energy cost
