Considerably lower TDP
Reply
35 W
vs
47 W
12 W lower TDP. The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.

Uses hyperthreading technology
Reply
Yes
vs
No
Many of Intel's processors use hyperthreading, which means that each core of the processor can work on two threads at once instead of most processors which work on a single thread per core. This means you can have significant performance gains in certain applications.
