Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 12.19W vs 52.81W 4.3x lower typical power consumption
Newer Jul, 2014 vs Feb, 2010 Release date over 4 years later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Much lower annual home energy cost 3.61 $/year vs 15.66 $/year 4.3x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 13.14 $/year vs 56.94 $/year 4.3x lower annual commercial energy cost
