Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
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
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 4.88W vs 77.19W 15.8x lower typical power consumption
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much better performance per watt 12.34 pt/W vs 1.91 pt/W Around 6.5x better performance per watt
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Much lower annual home energy cost 1.45 $/year vs 22.89 $/year 15.8x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 5.26 $/year vs 83.22 $/year 15.8x lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Jan, 2015 vs Jan, 2012 Release date over 2 years later
