Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.8 GHz vs 3.2 GHz Around 20% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.6 GHz vs 3.31 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.8 GHz vs 3.2 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
