Intel Core 2 Duo P9700 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T6770 vs Intel Core 2 Duo SU9600
Intel Core 2 Duo P9700► remove from comparison
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.
Intel Core 2 Duo T6770► remove from comparison
The Intel Core 2 Duo T6670 is a laptop processor based on the Penryn core. It offers only 2 MB level 2 cache and is therefore slower than other 2.3 GHz clocked Core 2 Duo CPUs.
Intel Core 2 Duo SU9600► remove from comparison
The Intel Core 2 Duo SU9600 is a power efficient subnotebook processor based on the Penryn 3M core. It features all functions of the Penryn core, like Virtualization (VT-x), Trusted Execution and Speedstep. Due to the low core clock, the performance is a bit limited, but should be sufficient for everyday tasks.
