Intel Core 2 Duo P7550

Intel P7550

The Intel Core 2 Duo P7550 is a dual core processor for laptops. It features 2.26 GHz and a shared level 2 cache of 3 MB. It is an OEM CPU and similar to the Core 2 Duo P8400 (additional Trusted Execution Technology, and VT-x) and Core 2 Duo P7570.

The performance of the P7550 is on par with the fast Turion II Ultra with about 2.4 to 2.6 GHz. Modern demanding games like Supreme Commander may be limited by the CPU performance. High end gamers should choose a higher clocked Core 2 Duo (or Core i5 / i7).

The P7550 uses a Penryn (Montevina Update) core that features 2 integer units, 1 floating point unit, 1 load unit, and 1 store unit in a 14-stages long pipeline. Due to the Wide Dynamic Execution Technology, the core is able to simultaneously execute up to four instructions.

The integrated Enhanced Speedstep is able to downclock the core dynamically as low as 800 MHz to save power (in idle mode).
