Intel Core 2 Duo P8800


$260.00 Released May, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Fastest model available in the P8xxx series of 25W TDP processors. High performance whilst sacrificing minimal battery life. Available in numerous laptop models.

The Cons:P8600 2.4GHz model is arguably the sweet spot of the P8xxx series, this P8800 offers marginal performance improvements given the price increase. Small L2 cache compared to the 35W TDP T-series processors.

The Intel Core 2 Duo P8800 is a higher-end dual-core microprocessor based on 45nm technology and intended for notebook use, as it has a slim form factor and 25W thermal design power. It is supposed to allow a high number of programs to run simultaneously without sacrificing performance quality.

 It is one step up from the P8700 and has a faster processing speed of 2.66 GHz. Its front-side bus speed is 1066MHz, and it can perform 64-bit processing. Its L2 cache memory is 3MB, and this is shared between the processor's two cores to reduce time exchanging information between the two. It has Intel's HD Boost technology which allows the processor to keep up with high-definition video or video editing, or other HD applications. It is also supposed to make more efficient use of power to prolong laptop battery life and of system memory bandwidth.

Johnny T: #intel_core_2_duo_p8800 It is wrong indeed. This 2nd generation Penryn core (C2D) doesn't have such feature. Only the Core i series do. Jul 16, 11
