Core 2 is also more power efficient; Intel's goal for the mainstream CPU is to maintain 65 W, versus the 90 to -95 W of the mainstream Pentium D's, or the 130 W of the high-end Pentium D 940 or Extreme Edition CPUs.

/me looks at the macbook's temp monitor.... 77degC


Oh, thank god, Intel finally deciced make more power efficient chips. :)

also, I just wet my pants:
The Pentium 4 processor, and each core on a Pentium D CPU, could execute one SIMD instruction every two clock cycles. Intel streamlines the SSE execution unit, making it 128-bit wide throughout. In addition, Core 2 offers three SSE execution units. The net result is that 128-bit wide SSE instructions can be executed in a single clock cycle.

Five years ago, we called that "Altivec" and it came in G4 chips... :roll:

It's funny cos it's true...
Suit #1: I mean, have you got any insight as to why a bright boy like this would jeopardize the lives of millions?
Suit #2: No, sir, he says he does this sort of thing for fun.
