Report a correction
Much more l3 cache 8 MB vs 3 MB Around 2.8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much better PassMark score 6,534 vs 4,427 Around 50% better PassMark score
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 2.3 GHz Around 5% higher clock speed
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
More l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core Around 35% more l3 cache per core
