Paired up with Max memory (8GB) and a 180GB SSD the speed is quite impressive

just put one in a dell e6400 very nice upgrade


Terrible

22 months ago.

In 2018, this CPU is a terrible performer in gaming. Many games easily max out the utilization. However, for regular use on the Windows 10 environment and web browsing, the T9600 meets expectations. Dual cores at 2.8 GHz on the Penryn architecture serves passably. Doing much more is not a good idea on this processor.
