The T6600 is based on the older Core2 arch while the i5 is Nehalem based, which is newer. | Report abuse Collie147 March 10, 2010 8:25:56 AM Check out the block diagrams on the intel site for the t6600 compared to any of the i5s. There is no longer an FSB and the mem is directly connected to the processor along with the primary PCIe. | Report abuse Collie147 March 10, 2010 8:36:44 AM Sorry didnt cop it was a mobile processor. Here's a similar i5 mobile processor for comparison http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=43537&code=Intel%c...(3M+Cache%2c+2.26+GHz) | Report abuse deadlockedworld CPUs Expert March 10, 2010 1:48:17 PM To simplify all of that: The i5 is vastly better. If its even within $150-200 of the T6600 in price you should go with an i5 system. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Difference between T6600 and I5 processors> Related ressources: ForumIntel Core i5 vs Intel Core Duo T6600 ForumCore 2 duo T6600 vs i3-330M vs i3-350M vs i5-430M ForumWhat is the difference between intel core 2 duo and i5 ForumProcessor p8700 vs t6600 ForumDifference between Core 2 Duo with Intel i5 processors ForumDifference between a SU7300 and T6600 Intel Pendium Chip ForumT6600 vs p8400 ForumIntel core i3 330M v/s intel core 2 duo T6600 ForumDifference between core 2 duo and core i3 processors ?
