Intel Core 2 Duo P9700 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T6770 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T6570
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 T6570► remove from comparison
The Intel Core 2 Duo T6570 is an entry level dual core processor for laptops. It is based on the Penryn core but offers only 2 MB level 2 cache and a slow clock rate of 2.1 GHz. Compared to the Core 2 Duo T6500, the T6570 offers Virtualization VT-x and is therefore aimed at business notebooks.
The performance should be suited for non demanding applications like office, internet, entry level video editing or image correction. CPU intense games may be limited by the power of the T6570.
