Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9500

Intel Core 2 Duo T6600

► remove

The Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 is an entry to mid-range dual core processor for laptops. It is based on the Penryn architecture, but features only 2 MB level 2 cache and a mediocre clock rate of 2.2 GHz. Compared to the similar T6670, the T6600 does not feature Virtualization features in hardware and is speced at a lower maximum temperature.

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 T6600.

Intel Core 2 Duo T9300

► remove Intel T9300

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 was a upper middle class dual core CPU for laptops, at the time of introduction. It is similar to the Core 2 Duo T9400 but features a slower clocked front side bus.

Due to the relatively high clock speed and 6MB Level 2 cache, the T9300 offers enough performance for most demanding games (in 2009) and applications.

The T9300 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 T9500

► remove Intel T9500

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9500 was a upper middle class dual core CPU for laptops at the time of introduction. It was intended to be used in the Santa Rosa platform due to the 800 MHz FSB. The T9550 is only slightly higher clocked but offers already a FSB1066.

Due to the relatively high clock speed and 6MB Level 2 cache, the T9500 offers enough performance for demanding games (in 2009) and applications. 

The T9500 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.
