Intel Core2 Duo T6400

Report a correction
More l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Supports dynamic frequency scaling Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for maximum performance when needed, while conserving power and minimizing heat production when not needed
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Significantly better performance per dollar 5.5 pt/$ vs 2.12 pt/$ More than 2.5x better performance per dollar
Better PassMark (Single core) score 777 vs 295 Around 2.8x better PassMark (Single core) score
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.22 GHz vs 1.87 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.2 GHz vs 1.87 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly lower typical power consumption 8.13W vs 28.44W 3.5x lower typical power consumption
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Newer Mar, 2012 vs Jan, 2009 Release date over 3 years later
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 2.41 $/year vs 8.43 $/year 3.5x lower annual home energy cost
