Much better 3DMark06 CPU score 39.3 vs 13.4 Around 3x better 3DMark06 CPU score
Significantly higher clock speed 2.3 GHz vs 1.44 GHz Around 60% higher clock speed
Much better turbo clock speed 1,000 MHz vs 600 MHz More than 65% better turbo clock speed
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Significantly better PassMark (Single core) score 1,332 vs 558 Around 2.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score 4,807 vs 3,097 More than 55% better geekbench 3 Multi-Core score
Higher GPU clock speed 300 MHz vs 200 MHz 50% higher GPU clock speed
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.3 GHz vs 1.44 GHz Around 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
