Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The Intel Core 2 Duo processor was developed to meet the insatiable demand for increased performance from PC users running multiple intense software applications simultaneously. In the office, PC usage has changed from data entry and word processing to e-Commerce, online collaboration, and an ever-increasing need for continual security and virus protection. In the home, interests have shifted from low-bandwidth photos and Internet surfing to downloading and viewing high-definition videos, as well as advanced photo and video editing.

Intel’s new 45nm manufacturing technology, with hafnium-infused Hi-k transistors, enables even more processor performance by doubling the transistor density, improving efficiency and speed relative to the previous generation, and increasing cache size by up to 50 percent. These new Intel Core 2 Duo processors deliver more performance without using more energy.

Built on the innovative Intel Core microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo desktop processor delivers revolutionary dual-core performance and breakthrough processor energy efficiency. With Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, Intel Smart Memory Access, Intel Advanced Smart Cache, and Intel Digital Media Boost, this new processor is designed to do more in less time. Additional features, which support enhanced security, virtualization, and 64-bit computing, make the Intel Core 2 Duo the most impressive processor developed for an increasingly multimedia-centered, high-definition world.

Have a MythTV setup with a server streaming my TV contents and videos to my PCs/frontends. I recently bought a 1080p LCD TV for my living room and a Blueray internal writer for my living room HTPC. Unfortunately when running HD content it was clear that the CPU I had even though dual core was not powerful enough. So instead I bought this CPU. Now I can watch HD content without any problems and I even tried a few more power hungry games and combined with my graphics card it has no problems to deal with these either. So a good buy.
Of course make sure you check that your motherboard has the right frequency so it can power this CPU - check motherboard manual/homepage. I fell into this basic trap and had to buy a new motherboard as well (and I thought I knew something about computers;-)).

Bought for a SOHO VM Server, purely because it was compatible with our existing mainboard, and it works fine. Did have some issues at first, but swapping the existing DDR2 RAM for DDR3 fixed it, and (touch wood) all VMs have been working happily since.

Not a bad processor at all.

And if you build your computer well, with good components elsewhere and a well optimised Windows installation it will perform near enough as well as others much more expensive. The FSB often becomes a bottleneck in systems that are cored by much more powerful processors anyway.

-1 Star for value, as at the moment it is the same price as the slightly better E8500.

It works fine. Arrived quickly and in good condition. A nice upgrade from my E6400 core 2 duo. I did however have to upgrade my mobo and ram too...

Great chip, I got it as a upgrade from my pentium D E6800 easily installed as it is also a Lga 775.
Bottom line it's fast

Replaced it with e8400 which worked brilliantly. Now able to use this computer again. Really good deal. Would have replaced with new machine at a much higher cost. This computer is fast enough for my internet use.
brilliant.

A fantastic CPU to overclock. Got my running at 3.6 GHz, but my brother in law has had his CPU running at more than 4.0 GHz!! If you are overclocking though, you'll need to buy a separate fan to keep it cool.
