Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
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
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Significantly lower typical power consumption 5.28W vs 30.88W 5.8x lower typical power consumption
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Mar, 2009 Release date over 6 years later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 1.57 $/year vs 9.15 $/year 5.8x lower annual home energy cost
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 5.69 $/year vs 33.29 $/year 5.8x lower annual commercial energy cost
