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
Higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.93 GHz Around 10% higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.97 GHz vs 2.94 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 59.31W More than 10% lower typical power consumption
Higher Maximum operating temperature 74.1 °C vs 72.6 °C Almost the same
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.2 GHz vs 2.93 GHz Around 10% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 63.95 $/year More than 10% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 17.59 $/year More than 10% lower annual home energy cost
