I'm not sure.
Can someone clarify this?

It's both faster and better quality.
I don't quite understand. Can you elaborate?
What advantages does this give exactly?

Well, I'm not a hardcore professional, so I don't know if upgrading the processor is worth it for me. The 2500 is still plenty fast right?
