Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 vs Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 vs Intel Core 2 Duo P9600

Intel Core 2 Duo T9600

► remove from comparison Intel T9600

The Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 is a high end dual core CPU for laptops (at the time of introduction). Compared to the faster T9900 it does not support the new power saving C1E state. The newer Core 2 Duo P9700 offers a similar performance but features a lower TDP of 28 Watt.

Due to the high clock speed, the T9600 offers enough performance for demanding games (in 2009) and applications. 

The T9600 uses a Penryn 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 (in idle mode).

The Core 2 Duo T9600 can be used in a Socket P socket with 479 pins.

Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600

► remove from comparison

The Intel Core 2 Duo SL9600 is a low power laptop processor for small and slim laptops. It features the full 6 MB level 2 cache and all features of the Penryn core (e.g. VT-x and Trusted Execution). Due to the large cache, the CPU shows a good performance for the small clock rate. However, in the MacBook Air, the CPU throttled very often, leading to the slower benchmarks in our database.

Compared to other Core 2 Duo models, the C2D SL9600 only supports the socket BGA956 and is soldered in the MacBook Air models.

 

Intel Core 2 Duo P9600

► remove from comparison Intel P9600

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

Due to the relatively high clock speed and 6MB Level 2 cache, the P9600 offers enough performance for demanding games (in 2009) and applications. The newer Core i3-330M should deliver a similar performance due to the hyperthreading support.

The P9600 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).
