Both processors are clocked at 1.8GHz, but the D525 is a dual-core processor while the D425 is only a single core. Both processors will support DDR3 SODIMMs and have been optimized for storage applications. They will also be paired up with a new I/O controller, called the 82801 IR I/O. Many high-end companies like LG, Netgear, and LaCie are already on board with the new processors.
