Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 4 MB 50% more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 65 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
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 4 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 6 vs 2 Three times as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.75 GHz vs 3 GHz Around 60% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Oct, 2012 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 6 years later
More threads 6 vs 4 2 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.82 GHz vs 3 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
