Intel Core 2 Duo T9500 vs Intel Core 2 Duo SP9400 vs Intel Core 2 Duo SL9300
Intel Core 2 Duo T9500► remove from comparison
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.
The integrated Enhanced Speedstep is able to downclock the core dynamically to save power (in idle mode).
Intel Core 2 Duo SP9400► remove from comparison
The Intel Core 2 Duo SP9400 is a laptop CPU with the full 6MB level 2 cache at 2.4 GHz and a TDP of only 25 Watt.
Intel Core 2 Duo SL9300► remove from comparison
The Core 2 Duo SL9300 is a power saving low voltage CPU for thin and light laptops. It offers a good performance for the 1.6 GHz clock rate, as it features the full 6 MB level 2 cache of the used Penryn core.
