Much more l3 cache 30 MB vs 24 MB 25% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache 3 MB vs 2 MB 50% more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 2.27 GHz More than 5% higher clock speed
More threads 20 vs 16 4 more threads
Higher turbo clock speed 2.8 GHz vs 2.67 GHz Around 5% higher turbo clock speed
Newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l2 cache per core 0.3 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core Around 20% more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.4 GHz vs 2.27 GHz More than 5% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Apr, 2011 vs Mar, 2010 Release date a year later
