Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.63 GHz vs 3.23 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower typical power consumption 65W vs 77.19W More than 15% lower typical power consumption
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3 GHz vs 2.8 GHz More than 5% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual commercial energy cost 70.08 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 15% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 19.27 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 15% lower annual home energy cost
