Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T6400

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 T6400

► remove from comparison

The Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 is an entry level dual core processor for cheap laptops. It is based on the Penryn core but offers only 2 MB level 2 cache and a slow clock speed of 2 GHz. The performance should be sufficient for office and other casual tasks but high level gaming and HD video editing for example could be limited by the CPU performance.
