Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
Significantly more l3 cache 20 MB vs 10 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 69.06W vs 105.63W Around 35% lower typical power consumption
Supports more RAM 1,572,864 MB vs 262,144 MB Supports 6x more RAM
More cores 8 vs 4 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
More threads 16 vs 8 Twice as many threads
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Jul, 2013 Release date over 2 years later
Much lower annual home energy cost 20.48 $/year vs 31.32 $/year Around 35% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 74.46 $/year vs 113.88 $/year Around 35% lower annual commercial energy cost
Higher Maximum operating temperature 74 °C vs 70 °C More than 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
