This is clearly an E7200 call. The extra MHz should offset the impact of performance from 3mb cache.

Except even at stock speeds the E7200 performs as well if not a little better than the 6700, even with 1mb less cache and a lower clockspeed.

This can be explained by the different core they use, probably proving that the 45-mm Penryn core is more efficient than the previous 65-mm core. The only times we saw Core 2 Duo E6700 being faster than Core 2 Duo E7200 was on PCMark Vantage overall score, PC Mark Vantage’s Communications benchmark and Quake 4 with no image quality settings enabled.

Thus for the average user Core 2 Duo E7200 will be a great alternative to both Core 2 Duo E6600 and Core 2 Duo E6700.
And it runs cooler, with less power
