Intel x5-Z8550

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher clock speed 1.44 GHz vs 0.9 GHz Around 60% higher clock speed
Slightly higher turbo clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 2.2 GHz Around 10% higher turbo clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.4 GHz vs 2.02 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.44 GHz vs 0.9 GHz Around 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jan, 2016 vs Jul, 2015 Release date 6 months later
