Intel Core Duo T2400 + Linux
While there were a few areas where the Core Duo T2400 had fallen to the Pentium M 750 in the single-threaded benchmarks, overall, Intel's Core Duo T2400 processor was a terrific performer, and we can only wait to share with what the Core 2 Duo will hold in store for computing performance. The Intel Core Duo T2400 was able to shine in all of the benchmarks where multi-tasking was taking place whether it be encoding during gaming or compiling while compressing files. In many of the CPU-centric benchmarks, there was a definitive advantage with the dual-core processor, while in some of the single-threaded benchmarks the Pentium M had managed to take a minimal lead. Of course, not all of the system hardware components were identical, so there was an increased standard deviation. With that, outside of the CPU performance, it was also interesting to see the Linux fglrx performance delta between the Mobility Radeon X300 and X1400. No power consumption or Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology comments to share today, as those and more will be saved for another day.
