Intel Pentium E6500

Report a correction
Much 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
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.93 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 45% higher clock speed
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Much higher Maximum operating temperature 74.1 °C vs 49 °C More than 50% higher Maximum operating temperature
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
