What is a SLAQD CPU and is it the fastest C2D?

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Wed Jul 05, 2017 2:04 pm

Ok, I saw the SLAQD CPU that TuuS uses in the R500 he sells. Does SLAQD stand for something? What is the difference between that and a T9900 or X9100?
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

That's the sSPEC code, a unique ID assigned to each variation of CPU. It's a Core 2 Mobile E8435 - 3.06 GHz, 1066 FSB, 6M L2 Cache.

Based on info I found here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads ... ce.485240/

They are iMac desktop CPUs, so it was pulled from an iMac. It looks like it has a 45/55W TDP - higher than the 35W TDP of the T9900. It also looks like it's essentially a multiplier locked version of the X9100.

Also from here: /viewtopic.php?t=111290

It will use more power and run hotter due to lacking the power control logic of the T9900.
