Much higher turbo clock speed 3.6 GHz vs 0 GHz Compared to all cpus, 3.6 GHz turbo clock speed is just OK
Much more l3 cache 35 MB vs 12 MB Around 3x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 2.3 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
More threads 28 vs 12 16 more threads
Newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 2.5x more l3 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.29 GHz vs 2.76 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.55 GHz vs 2.3 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2014 vs Mar, 2010 Release date over 4 years later
