    Anyone care to speculate why the CD downloads are 49MB while the C2D downloads are 74MB? Only difference to my knowledge is i64 instructions.

    There could be a firmware update included for c2d and not cd?

    Ok. That's possible. A lot of firmware there.

    I am predicting the C2D update is bigger because of 64-bit stuff of the Core 2 Duo processor and some optimization for the Core 2 Duo processor.

    In the main thread some CD users where reporting 49MB. I wonder if it could be because of installed apps.

    Must be something to do with previously installed software then.
