Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 vs Celeron 847

Mini Review

Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 advantages

  • The Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 offers higher operating frequency than the Intel 847.
  • The processor is manufactured in a package, that requires Socket P. CPUs in this package can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

Intel Celeron 847 advantages

  • On-chip Virtualization feature enhances performance in virtualization tasks.
  • The Intel Celeron 847 CPU includes SSE4.2 instructions.
  • Like many modern microprocessors, the processor embeds Graphics Processing Unit. While this GPU is not powerful enough to run latest games with all settings on, it can be used for casual gaming and 3D applications.
  • The microprocessor is 51% more energy efficient than the Intel T6600.

T6600 vs 847 specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Intel 847 and Core 2 Duo T6600 characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
