Much lower typical power consumption 42.25W vs 77.19W More than 45% lower typical power consumption
Supports more RAM 786,432 MB vs 32,768 MB Supports 24x more RAM
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
More threads 12 vs 4 Three times as many threads
Significantly more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core More than 65% more l3 cache per core
More cores 6 vs 4 2 more cores; run more applications at once
Significantly higher Maximum operating temperature 88.84 °C vs 72.6 °C More than 20% higher Maximum operating temperature
Newer Jul, 2014 vs Jan, 2011 Release date over 3 years later
Much lower annual home energy cost 12.53 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 45% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 45.55 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 45% lower annual commercial energy cost
