Intel brings the power of the Core 2 Duo line of processors to your notebook. The T7700 runs at a snappy 2.4 GHz and shares 4MB of L2 cache between the cores. The shared Advanced Smart Cache let the processor divide it between the cores as needed for optimum performance. An 800MHz FSB allows for maximum data transfer rates. Smart Memory Access optimizes memory transfers to keep the data flowing.
All that power comes with a price, potentially shorter battery life, but Intel has added features help that problem. Intelligent Power Capability helps monitor the system and optimizes performance for energy efficiency. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology adjusts processor power to balance performance and battery life.
This is a great little processor for portable applications, and more than ready to go along with the ride! Find the right laptop package, slap it in there, and watch the fun!
Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 Processor
The Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 Processor's advanced capabilities provide twice the multitasking performance with improved energy efficiency for enhanced battery life so you get the benefits of a powerful dual-core PC plus all the benefits of mobility.
Dual-Core Processing with 4MB L2 Cache
The Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 processor features two independent processor cores in one physical package running at 2.4GHz with 4M shared L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB to provide truly parallel computing for enhanced multi-application performance.
Scalability and Performance with Intel EM64T
Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) can improve performance by allowing the system to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory. Intel EM64T also provides support for 64 bit computing to help handle the applications of tomorrow.
Execute Disable Bit (EDB)
Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST)
EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don't.
