Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo T6600

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.25 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.27 GHz vs 2.74 GHz Around 20% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.7 GHz vs 2.4 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
