Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Duo T7200

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.44 GHz Around 40% higher clock speed
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 2 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.27 GHz vs 1.53 GHz Around 50% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2 GHz vs 1.44 GHz Around 40% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Much better geekbench 3 AES single core score 279,050 MB/s vs 80,800 MB/s Around 3.5x better geekbench 3 AES single core score
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Newer Apr, 2015 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 8 years later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
