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
Higher clock speed 1.7 GHz vs 1.2 GHz More than 40% higher clock speed
Newer manufacturing process 28 nm vs 32 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 1.75 GHz vs 1.2 GHz More than 45% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.89 GHz vs 1.2 GHz More than 55% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

what about adding average antutu or other benchmark test for smartphone/tablet processor?
they didnt compare it specially because they want iy, its automatically generated comparison.. u can also search comparison result of intel atom Z250 vs i7 if u want -_-a

This compression is nonsense, Intel Atom cpus are based on x86, which has a lot more powerful instruction sets, the only acceptable comperission is comparing total benchmarks on real devices, not only the clock speed or cores number!
the dual core is hyperthreaded.. not saying you're wrong, but that's some explanation
I can't seem to understand the real sense in comparing a quad core to a dual core cpu. The only reason there is would to show that the quad core is better than the dual core. The results does not show cpu stability, precision, longevity, etc.
