Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 4 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 3 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
Much lower typical power consumption 101.56W vs 134.06W Around 25% lower typical power consumption
More cores 8 vs 2 6 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.56 GHz vs 3 GHz More than 50% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Nov, 2005 Release date over 7 years later
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.75 GHz vs 3 GHz Around 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Much lower annual home energy cost 30.11 $/year vs 39.75 $/year Around 25% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 109.5 $/year vs 144.54 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
