Intel Core2 Quad Q6600

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 0.25 MB 32x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 70% higher clock speed
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 8x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
