Core 2 Duo P9500 2.53GHz Game Requirement Analysis

Core 2 is a brand encompassing a range of Intel's consumer 64-bit x86-64 single-, dual-, and quad-core microprocessors based on the Core microarchitecture. The single- and dual-core models are single-die, whereas the quad-core models comprise two dies, each containing two cores, packaged in a multi-chip module. The introduction of Core 2 relegated the Pentium brand to the mid-range market, and reunified laptop and desktop CPU lines, which previously had been divided into the Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Pentium M brands.


The Core microarchitecture returned to lower clock rates and improved the usage of both available clock cycles and power when compared with the preceding NetBurst microarchitecture of the Pentium 4/D-branded CPUs. The Core microarchitecture provides more efficient decoding stages, execution units, caches, and buses, reducing the power consumption of Core 2-branded CPUs while increasing their processing capacity. Intel's CPUs have varied widely in power consumption according to clock rate, architecture, and semiconductor process, shown in the CPU power dissipation tables.

Oh, don't worry! Sure Vice City would work well ^^ Realize this processor has 6MB L2 cache which is very nice :) Maybe mostly why I love my C2D E8400 so much :) L2 > L3 ;)

I went to the store with the idea of buying Dell E6400 with P8600, but the guy offered me the same E6400 with P9500 so i took it. I work in a pawn shop and i sell alot of this laptops to my customers, they all love them. I would love if i can run Age Of Empires III on this CPU with my integrated 4500 graphics..

Haha, a better deal ;)


AOE III with your integrated GMA? Looking at the specs from the complete collection you can find here, low + flawless enough shouldn't be a problem, don't you think? :) At least don't worry about your RAM and P9500 ;)
PS I'm not that familiar with pawn shops and I don't think we have them here, but those laptops weren't they from the borrowers before? ^^ Collateral you can sell in case of a borrower's default? :D

A pawnbroker is an individual or business (pawnshop or pawn shop) that offers secured loans to people, with items of personal property used as collateral. I dont know if i can put a graphic card in my laptop, i mean a mobile card, that is available for this model? Or i am stuck with this one? Thanks.

Yes, I know what a pawnbroker is :)


You'd mostly be stuck with your integrated graphics, because it's normally a tough 'operation' to upgrade a laptop's graphics power; only a few would be available for one's laptop = less choice, plus then still you should be aware of power dissipation. Often a different/upgrade in battery is needed…and how often can you succeed with that in the same laptop? :D I wouldn't bother upgrading (with that laptop). No offense, but you get the point I think ;)

Yep, 100% agree with you. I was curious. The guys offered me a Dell E6420 with Core i5-2410M, 4GB DDR3, 128GB SSD and etc. for around 280$. I have 2 computers at the pawn shop and 2 at my house, the pawn shop is under my apartment so i guess i dont need a gaming laptop that bad :D. But somehow i liked this E6420.Cheers

You're seated well, man! Cheers!
