The New unique events only works with the dimensions event action, event category, event label whereas the "old" unique events could be used with all dimensions and worked as a deduplicator do basically the result was like a visit with a certain dimension.
Also the "old" unique events counted unique on every level for example if you had an event with two possible values for action.
event category: home, event label: teaser
event category: home, event label: logo
and a user fires off both events.
Now if you look at a report with only event category this would show 1 for the "old" unique events as it deduplicates on the selected dimension but would show 2 for the "new" unique events as the new unique events takes the two values in event action into account even though it is not displayed in the report.
