Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9800 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T6600

Intel Core 2 Duo T9300

► remove from comparison 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 T9800

► remove from comparison Intel T9800

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9800 was the top dual core CPU for laptops at the time of introduction. Later it was topped by the Core 2 Duo T9900 / X9100. Still the T9800 is a high end laptop CPU which is well suited for single and dual threaded applications.

Due to the high clock speed, the T9800 offers enough performance for demanding games (in 2009) and applications. On average, only faster dual cores (like the T9900 or fast Core i7) or Core i7 quad cores can be faster than the T9800.

The T9800 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 as low as 800 MHz to save power (in idle mode).

The Core 2 Duo T9800 can be used in a Socket P socket with 479 pins: Socket P / Micro Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array (Micro-FCPGA) requires 479-pin surface mount Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket (mPGA479M socket) or Micro Flip-Chip Ball Grid Array (Micro-FCBGA) for surface mount (479-ball)

Intel Core 2 Duo T6600

► remove from comparison

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.
