Much more l3 cache 40 MB vs 20 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Higher turbo clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 2.8 GHz Around 30% higher turbo clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 30% higher clock speed
More cores 16 vs 8 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 32 vs 16 Twice as many threads
Supports more RAM 1,572,864 MB vs 393,216 MB Supports 4x more RAM
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Mar, 2012 Release date over 3 years later
