Just Scroll down to read it more about Magento 2 vs Magento 1.
Changes in Magento 2:
1. HIGH PERFORMANCE
According to KISSmetrics, 47% of consumers expect a web page to load in 2 seconds or less, and 40% of people will abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load! But this is not the case with Magento 2, as it runs around 20% faster than Magento 1.x.
2. MORE CATALOG PAGE VIEWS PER HOUR
With Magento 2, the system can easily support 10 million catalog page views per hour vs. just 500,000 page views per hour on the Magento 1.x platform. (Assuming the same hardware.)
3. DATABASE IMPROVEMENTS
Make sure that you’ve made the time to do whatever your goal is. Also, research where you can get the best knowledge.
4. OPTIMIZED AND SIMPLIFIED CHECKOUT PROCESS
According to the latest study by Harris Interactive, 47% of buyers gave up a purchase because checkout process takes too long. But, don’t worry! Magento 2 offers highly optimized and simplified checkout process.

6. MORE MOBILE-FRIENDLY
Your online presence can be very important and you can start with Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
7. FASTER TIME TO MARKET
