Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 vs Intel Core 2 Duo SP9300 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9550

Intel Core 2 Duo T8100

► remove from comparison

The Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 is a mid-range dual-core processor for laptops from 2008. It is based on the Penryn core and offers all functions that were available at that time (e.g. Virtualization VT-x).

Intel Core 2 Duo SP9300

► remove from comparison

The Core 2 Duo SP9300 is a power efficient (25W TDP) dual core CPU for laptops. Compared to other Core 2 Duo with 2.26 GHz, the SP9300 features the full 6 MB level 2 cache of the Penryn core. Usually 3MB are enabled for 25 W CPUs at this clock range (e.g. P8400). Therefore, the performance is a bit better than similar clocked C2D CPUs.

Intel Core 2 Duo T9550

► remove from comparison Intel T9550

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9550 was the middle class dual core CPU for laptops at the time of introduction. It is similar to the Core 2 Duo P9600 except for the higher TDP of 35 versus 25 Watt.

Due to the relatively high clock speed and 6MB Level 2 cache, the T9550 offers enough performance for demanding games (in 2009) and applications. 

The T9550 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).
