Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 2 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 2 MB l3 cache is just OK
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 3.06 GHz vs 2.2 GHz Around 40% higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 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
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much more l3 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 1 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 74.1 °C vs 55 °C Around 35% higher Maximum operating temperature
Newer Jan, 2010 vs Feb, 2007 Release date over 2 years later
