Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo E8600

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.5 MB 12x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 3.33 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 50% higher clock speed
Much better PassMark score 2,415 vs 1,148 More than 2x better PassMark score
Much better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score 3,168 vs 1,895 More than 65% better geekbench 2 (32-bit) score
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 12x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.61 GHz vs 3.36 GHz More than 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.6 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jul, 2008 vs Jul, 2006 Release date over 2 years later
