Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 4 GHz vs 3.46 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 73.94W vs 105.63W 30% lower typical power consumption
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.61 GHz vs 4.15 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much lower annual home energy cost 21.92 $/year vs 31.32 $/year 30% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 79.72 $/year vs 113.88 $/year More than 30% lower annual commercial energy cost
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.77 GHz vs 3.46 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
