(An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system’s performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance). With two computational execution cores in a single processor, it provides greater system response when running multi-threaded applications simultaneously with no significant increase in power consumption. It’s optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. It can simultaneously run multiple demanding applications. It features advanced Intel innovations of the Core 2 Duo processor including Smart Memory Access that improves system performance by hiding memory latency; Advanced Digital Media Boost that doubles the execution speed for instructions used widely; Dynamic Power Coordination that coordinates Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology and idle power-management state (C-states) transitions independently per core to help save power; and Deeper Sleep with Dynamic Cache Sizing which saves power by flushing cache data to system memory during periods of inactivity to lower CPU voltage.
