Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Vs Intel Core 2 Duo E6600

Released right next to each other in the third quarter of 2006, the E6700 and E6600 are microprocessors or central processing units (CPUs) that manufacturer Intel released under its Core 2 Duo brand. The E6700 and E6600 stand apart in certain aspects.

Clock Speed

In terms of the speed at which it performs its fundamental operations--in other words, its clock speed--the E6700 is rated at 2.66 gigahertz (GHz). That of the E6660 is slower, as it is rated at 2.4 GHz.

Bus/Core Ratio

The E6700 has a 10x multiplier, which means that it measures the ratio of the internal CPU clock rate to the externally supplied clock at 10 to 1. By comparison, the E6600 has a 9x multiplier, thus producing a 9-to-1 ratio.

Identical CPU

Despite the two aforementioned differences, the E6700 and E6600 are virtually the same processor. Both dual-core CPUs, each one is manufactured on a 143-square-millimeter die containing 291 million transistors.
