Intel Core 2 Duo P9700

Intel P9700

The Intel Core 2 Duo P9700 is a high end dual core CPU for laptops (at the time of introduction). It is the fastest Core 2 Duo P-model and the performance is comparable to the Core 2 Duo T9600. Still the TDP rating is considerably better (28 versus 35 Watt).

Due to the high clock speed, the P9700 offers enough performance for demanding games (in 2009) and applications. 

The P9700 uses a Penryn 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 (in idle mode).

The Core 2 Duo P9700 can be used in a Socket P socket with 479 pins.
