Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Significantly higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 10% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower typical power consumption 13.81W vs 20.31W More than 30% lower typical power consumption
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Lower annual commercial energy cost 14.89 $/year vs 21.9 $/year More than 30% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 4.1 $/year vs 6.02 $/year More than 30% lower annual home energy cost
