Solved T6600 Vs P8700 Tags: CPUs Last response: November 15, 2009 8:17 PM in CPUs Share peasant77 November 15, 2009 5:37:34 PM i am looking at getting a lenovo laptop it comes stock with PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1066MHz memory the motherboard seems to support 800 mhz and 1066 configuration it comes stock with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6600 (2.20GHz 800MHz 2MBL2) and an upgrade for a 110 bucks for Intel Core 2 Duo Processor P8700 (2.53GHz 1066MHz 3MBL2) i will be doing lots of image and video rendering on the laptop so it will be memory and cpu intensive work do you think there will be a noticeable difference with the faster CPU. of course money is an issue but i could swing the 110 bucks if necessary on cpu benchmarks it says T6600 = 1519 P8700 = 1776 but i am not sure if this is on 800 or 1066 configured systems any thoughts or suggestions?
