Intel Core 2 Duo T7600► remove from comparison
The Core 2 Duo T7600 is a middle class dual core CPU for laptops. It is based on the Merom core and features 4MB Level 2 cache.
At the time of announcement, the T7600 was a very fast CPU and had enough performance for games and applications in 2008. In 2009, the Core 2 Duo T7600 performed similar to a middle class Core 2 Duo P7570 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.
Modern Penryn based Core 2 Duo are a bit faster per MHz (with similar Cache sizes) and are more power efficient (due to the 45nm process).
