Intel Core2 Duo T9500

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 2 MB 3x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 1.66 GHz More than 55% higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 3 MB/core vs 1 MB/core 3x more l2 cache per core
Much lower typical power consumption 28.44W vs 84.5W 3x lower typical power consumption
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
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much lower annual home energy cost 8.43 $/year vs 25.05 $/year 3x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 30.66 $/year vs 91.1 $/year 3x lower annual commercial energy cost
Newer Jan, 2008 vs Oct, 2007 Release date 2 months later
