Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 2,230 vs 1,396 Around 60% better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
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
Higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 40% higher clock speed
Newer Jul, 2008 vs Jun, 2003 Release date over 5 years later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.78 GHz vs 2.95 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.9 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better performance per watt 1.6 pt/W vs 0.31 pt/W Around 5.2x better performance per watt
Slightly better PassMark score 1,488 vs 511 Around 3x better PassMark score
