Report a correction
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 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 85.31W vs 134.06W More than 35% lower typical power consumption
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.52 GHz vs 3 GHz More than 15% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much lower annual home energy cost 25.29 $/year vs 39.75 $/year More than 35% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 91.98 $/year vs 144.54 $/year More than 35% lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Jan, 2007 vs Nov, 2005 Release date over 1 years later
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.6 GHz vs 3 GHz More than 20% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
