Core 2 duo
The majority of the desktop and mobile Core 2 processor variants are Core 2 Duo with two processor cores on a single Merom, Conroe, Allendale, Penryn or wolfdale chip. These come in a wide range of performance and power consumption, starting with the relatively slow ultra-low-power Uxxxx (10 W) and low-power Lxxxx (17 W) versions, to the more performance oriented Pxxxx (25 W) and Txxxx (35 W) mobile versions and the Exxxx (65 W) desktop models. The mobile Core 2 Duo processors with an 'S' prefix in the name are produced in a smaller µFC-BGA 956 package which allows building more compact laptops. Within each line, a higher number usually refers to a better performance, which depends largely on core and front-side bus clock frequency and amount of second level cache, which are model specific. Core 2 Duo processors typically use the full L2 cache of 2, 3, 4 or 6 MB available in the specific stepping of the chip, while versions with the amount of cache reduced during manufacturing are sold for the low-end consumer market as Celeron or Pentium Dual-Core processors. Like those processors, some low-end Core 2 Duo models disable features such as Intel Virtualization Technology. Details can be found at the list of Intel Core 2 microprocessors.

The Xeon 32xx and 33xx processors are mostly identical versions of the desktop Core 2 Quad processors and can be used interchangeably. Kentsfield derived from Conroe and Yorkfield from Wolfdale. While this allows twice the performance to a dual-core processors at the same clock frequency in ideal conditions. so the performance for single-thread workloads would be worse on a Core 2 Quad. all Core 2 Quad models were versions of Core 2 Duo desktop processors. this is highly workload specific and requires applications to take advantage of the extra cores. high-end Core 2 Duo processors often operate at higher clock frequencies. Also.

which makes them especially attractive for overclocking. The same processor is also available as Core i5 and Pentium. 2010. usually with a higher clock frequency and an unlocked clock multiplier. following the retirement of the Core 2 brand. often $999 or more. The Core i33xxM processors are based on Arrandale. Core 2 Extreme processors were released at a much higher price than their regular version. the mobile version of the Clarkdale desktop processor. They are similar to the Core i5-4xx series but running at lower clock speeds and without Turbo Boost. The first Core i3 processors were launched on January 7. This is similar to earlier Pentium processors labeled as Extreme Edition. The first Nehalem based Core i3 was Clarkdale-based.

It is positioned between the mainstream Core i3 & Core 2 and the high-end Core i7 & Xeon brands. The same processors with different sets of features (Hyper-Threading and other clock frequencies) enabled are sold as Core i7-8xx and Xeon 3400-series processors. together with Core i7-6xx and Core i3-3xx processors based on the same chip. 2009. Lynnfield Core i5 processors have an 8 MB L3 cache. the desktop version of Arrandale. while the Core i5-6xx will use the full cache and the Core i3-3xx will have no support for Turbo Boost.
