The Core Duo mobile processors break new ground in high-efficiency, low-power mobile computing. Two cores give you true multi-tasking and multi-threading allowing you to play a game while downloading music in the background.

Since you don’t always run your system at max load, the Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology lets the operating system throttle down the processor’s speed. When the processor is slowed down, it uses less power. Less power means lower electricity bills. Also, if it’s running with less power it is running cooler which will extend battery life.

Digital Media Boost is a set of technologies that accelerates CAD tools, 3D and 2D modeling, editing and gaming. This is one of the key ingredients in Intel’s Viiv technology that gives you a truly rich multimedia experience. With all these features, you'll wonder why it doesn't cost more!

  • newegg Specialized Dual-core Microarchitecture The Intel Core Duo processor includes two mobile-optimized execution cores in a single processor to enable execution of parallel threads or applications on separate cores with dedicated CPU resources. The results enable outstanding dual-core performance and greater system response when running multi-threaded or multiple demanding applications simultaneously.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache – 2MB L2 cache with Advanced Transfer Cache Architecture Delivers a smarter and more efficient cache and bus to enable enhanced dual-core performance and power savings.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggsUnlike Anything I've Ever Used

Pros: 1.Completely separate execution of processes.
2. Cool operating temperature under high loads.

Cons: 1. No support for EMT64 (64-bit processing).

Other Thoughts: This thing came with my Lenovo ThinkPad, and it's blazingly fast. Using the Windows Task Manager, I was able to put Halo on one core and my video conversion software on the other core. Halo in core 1 had absolutely no performance hit while the video conversion software sucked up 100% of its alloted power in core 2.

Even when running in single-core mode (available setting in the BIOS), this thing is still fast.

5 out of 5 eggsJust wanted to Add something L2 cache is 4MB

Pros: This processor works well under load... Pretty fast at multi-tasking...Also can handle games , I have played Doom 3 on this laptop of coarse with radeon x1300 card..4

Cons: None..

Other Thoughts: I have this in a Dell E1505 or 6400.. I have used Intel's Processor ID Tool. Its showing the L2 cache as being 2MB per core... 2MBx2MB or thus 4MB total. I have checked my Pentium D 820 which I have bought here, It shows as 2MB X 1 or L2 cache as being 2MB total which is correct for this D820 CPU..

5 out of 5 eggsUnexpected performance

Pros: Twin-core capability, astounding speed for the price, runs relatively cooler than quite a few other laptop processors I've seen, single or dual core alike.

Cons: 1.66 GHz is a tad slow for the money...

Other Thoughts: It was like using a microwave for the first time instead of an oven: You're in no way used to it and are skeptical as well. Will it work like it should? In this case, yes. I ran a file transfer and wanted to leave my PC, as I was used to on single-core machines. I decided to run NASCAR SimRacing at the same time and saw it run smoothly. I exited to my desktop and found that my virus scanner was active too, with virtually no performance hitch in the game. Three programs at once, no slowdown. Superb.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the Lappy

Pros: Well, i actually own one in my Dell Inspiron E1505 and it's a solid performer.

Cons: Gets kinda warm, but it is a notebook.

Other Thoughts: If you have this in your notebook the processor will mainly run at 998mhz on both cores till you start pushing it, then it'll clock to the 1.66.
