Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 vs Intel Core 2 Duo P9700

Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600

► remove from comparison

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 T9400

► remove from comparison Intel T9400

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 was a uppder middle class dual core CPU for laptops, at the time of introduction. It is similar to the Core 2 Duo P9500 except for the higher TDP of 35 versus 25 Watt).

Due to the relatively high clock speed and 6MB Level 2 cache, the T9400 offers enough performance for most demanding games (in 2009) and applications.

The T9400 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 to save power (in idle mode).

Intel Core 2 Duo P9700

► remove from comparison 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.
