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 higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 35% higher clock speed
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 885 vs 655 More than 35% better PassMark (Single core) score
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 2,148 vs 1,600 Around 35% better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
Much better performance per watt 1.49 pt/W vs 1.12 pt/W Around 35% better performance per watt
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.17 GHz vs 3.11 GHz Almost the same
Newer Oct, 2007 vs Jul, 2006 Release date over 1 years later
