Report a correction
Much higher turbo clock speed 2.4 GHz vs None Compared to all cpus, 2.4 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Much better 3DMark06 CPU score 23.7 vs 20.3 More than 15% better 3DMark06 CPU score
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 40 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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 1.6 GHz vs 1.3 GHz Around 25% higher clock speed
Much better performance per watt 12.34 pt/W vs 2.34 pt/W More than 5.2x better performance per watt
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 14.63W 3x lower typical power consumption
Newer Jan, 2015 vs Aug, 2011 Release date over 3 years later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Better PassMark score 1,863 vs 614 More than 3x better PassMark score
Lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 15.77 $/year 3x lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 4.34 $/year 3x lower annual home energy cost
