Intel Core 2 Duo T9500 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 vs Intel Core 2 Duo T9550

Intel Core 2 Duo T9500

► remove from comparison 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.

The integrated Enhanced Speedstep is able to downclock the core dynamically to save power (in idle mode).

Intel Core 2 Duo T9400

► remove from comparison Intel T9400

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 was a uppder middle class dual core CPU for laptops, at the time of introduction. It is similar to the Core 2 Duo P9500 except for the higher TDP of 35 versus 25 Watt).

Due to the relatively high clock speed and 6MB Level 2 cache, the T9400 offers enough performance for most demanding games (in 2009) and applications.

The T9400 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.
