How can this be?? t4400 vs t7200

According to Passmark Software, after benchmarking hundreds of cpus they compiled a list.

They claim the "Pentium Dual-Core T4400 @ 2.20GHz" is about 30% more powerful than my "Intel Core2 Duo T7200 @ 2.00GHz"?

Sure it might have a faster clock speed but they also claim it beats an "Intel Core2 Duo T7800 @ 2.60GHz"

T7200 (4M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 667 MHz FSB) 65nm
T4400 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) 45nm

Does it actually mean this (newer) dual core processor is better performing than my slightly older C2D?
Please tell me they made a mistake lol

    You are also missing that it is a newer processor built on 45 nm the other 2 processors are 65nm. 45 nm processors are 15 to 20 % faster clock for clock compared to the older 65nm processors.

    Now Passmark isnt the best for actual benchmarks its all user compiled data they do none of their own testing so that is why you dont see many people here reference passmark to often. But I would be willing to say that the newer T4400 should defintely outperform both of those processors.
  2. from what i remember doesnt c2d have 2 separate processors while dual core only has 1 processor with 2 cores?
  3. C2D is the same as Dual Core.
