They are the core types, the best of the cores are san diego and then venice and the clawhammer is the last generation equivalent to the san diego.

Main difference is the san diego has a 1mb L2 cache the venice has an l2 of half that, the san diegos are the better chips as they can go faster in terms of performance, eg if you overclocked the san diego and the venice to the same speed the san diego would have much better performance.
