Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 2 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.5 GHz 60% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.52 GHz vs 2.17 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.6 GHz vs 1.5 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
