Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 Processor
Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 Processor by Starred Reviews
This two core processor from Intel is clocked at 2 GHz and has 3 MB of L3 Cache Memory. Based upon the 45nm Penryn Core, the P7350 does not has integrated memory controller, which increases the memory latency and reduces the processor to memory throughput. This is unlike the newer Core ix ( core i3 , i5 and i7) processors that come with integrated memory controller.
The Virtualization ( VT-x) is disabled in the P7350, which leads to inferior performance if you plan to you seamlessly navigate between two operating systems. The Speedstep technology allows reducing the processor clock frequency down all way to 800 MHz to preserve power consumption.

The More recent Intel Core i3 processors are significantly faster than the Intel Core 2 Duo P7350. For example the core i3-330M, a 2.13 GHz dual core processor has a passmark score of 1964.
If you wish to compare a similarly clocked processor Pentium P6100 at 2 GHz makes a perfect companion. Based upon the Nehalem architecture ( the same architecture that powers Intel Core i3 processors sans the integrated memory controller), the P6100 has a passmark score of 1528 as compared to P7350’s score of 1397.
Starredreviews hopes that the review gives an insight into where this processor stands as compared to the newer processors. Your comments are valuable.
