Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 2.3 GHz Around 15% higher clock speed
Significantly higher turbo clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.7 GHz More than 20% higher turbo clock speed
Much more l3 cache 20 MB vs 16 MB 25% 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
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.13 GHz vs 2.3 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 80 °C vs 75 °C More than 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
More l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 2 MB/core 25% more l3 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.08 GHz vs 2.3 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
