Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo SL9400

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 more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 6x more l2 cache per core
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Higher clock speed 1.86 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 15% higher clock speed
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.1 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 1.87 GHz vs 1.6 GHz More than 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
