Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 vs Intel Core 2 Duo P7550
Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 ► remove
The Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 is a low power laptop processor for small and slim laptops. It features the full 6 MB level 2 cache and all features of the Penryn core (e.g. VT-x and Trusted Execution). Due to the large cache, the CPU shows a good performance for the small clock rate. However, in the MacBook Air, the CPU throttled very often, leading to the slower benchmarks in our database.
Compared to other Core 2 Duo models, the C2D SL9600 only supports the socket BGA956 and is soldered in the MacBook Air models.
Intel Core 2 Duo P7550 ► remove
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).
