    Similar spec processors, very different Windows Experience index

      I have a desktop which I have had almost 3 years with a C2D E6600 2.4GHz processor. I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 home, and immediately checked the Windows Experience index, for which my processor returned 4.8

       

      Yesterday I acquired a new laptop, with a C2D P7570 2.26GHz processor with Windows 7 Professional, and got a processor score of 5.9.

       

      Now I don't understand the technical details of processors to any degree, yet comparing the spec of each, they appear very similar on paper, so why would the E6600 give me such a low score compared to the P7570?
