Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 12 MB vs 2 MB 6x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 6x more l2 cache per core
Much lower typical power consumption 40.63W vs 85.31W 2.1x lower typical power consumption
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.67 GHz vs 2.95 GHz Around 25% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.85 GHz vs 2.5 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 43.8 $/year vs 91.98 $/year 2.1x lower annual commercial energy cost
Much lower annual home energy cost 12.04 $/year vs 25.29 $/year 2.1x lower annual home energy cost
