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).
The Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 was at the time of announcement a fast dual-core CPU for laptops with 3 MB level 2 cache. It is based on the Penryn core with all features enabled (but without the full 6MB level 2 cache). The later announced Core 2 Duo P7450 was cheaper and used less power.
