Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.16GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80570E8500

  • 1333MHz FSB
  • 45nm Wolfdale 65W
  • 6MB L2 Cache
ICON Loading...

With the Wolfdale core Intel pours more power into a Core 2 Duo package. The 45nm process allowed Intel to reduce the power needed to 65W. Lower power means lower CPU heat, which translates to lower system heat and longer system life. They also packed more features into the chip.

L2 cache has been bumped to 6MB and the Front Side Bus has been pushed to 1333MHz. You can now use DDR2 or the hot new DDR3 memory for extreme performance. The processor also boosted memory access and execution speed with the Wide Dynamic Execution and Smart Memory Access. These combine to let the processor compute more instructions with more data per clock cycle. You'd better watch out; your enemies will be shooting back faster now.

Advanced Digital Media Boost has been enhanced with the addition of the SSE4 instruction set and Intel HD Boost. This will give your entertainment experience a boost with better audio and video processing. It will also help with speech recognition, engineering and scientific applications. Perhaps most important of all will be the boost to security with increased encryption power and speed.

  • newegg Specialized Dual-core Microarchitecture The Intel Core 2 Duo processor includes dual execution cores in a single processor to enable execution of parallel threads or applications on separate cores, resulting in revolutionary dual-core performance, breakthrough processor energy efficiency and exceptional system response when running multi-threaded or multiple demanding applications simultaneously. The innovative 45nm dual-core technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L2 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L2 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Intel EM64T provides an enhancement to Intel 32-bit architecture by enabling the desktop processor platform to access larger amounts of memory. With appropriate 64-bit supporting hardware and software, platforms based on an Intel processor supporting Intel EM64T can enable use of extended virtual and physical memory.
  • 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.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) With Intel VT, one hardware platform functions as multiple "virtual" platforms. For business, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, Intel VT allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members using the same platform simultaneously.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't say enogth good

Pros: This thing out of box... on stock voltage... ran 4.25 GHz. With a little incentive of voltage ran at 4.5 GHz

Cons: How can I complain

Other Thoughts: Running in a BFG 680i motherboard with 8gb of ram and SLI'ed 470's. Heaven Bench Mark 1800+ score. no Bottleneck between E8500 and Q9650. Sweet CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 775 CPU out there

Pros: Overclocks great without any additional voltage or heat.

Cons: An older dual core.

Other Thoughts: I'm still using it to this day on a system that runs 24/7.

5 out of 5 eggsNever came down in price!

Pros: I bought this processor as a mid range gaming build waaay back in 2008. Primary use has been gaming, but I moved on to developing on the Source engine last year, which involves a lot of compiling and graphical work. Nothing I have thrown at this has ever phased it. I coupled it with a 9800 XLR8 Ultra Edition and never had anything I couldnt run on max settings smoothly.

Cons: Every time I run them over with a truck, they break.

Other Thoughts: Its sad this never really came down in price. I checked on them periodically for a couple years and never saw a substantial drop from when I bought mine. Must be a testament to their durability and staying power.

4 out of 5 eggsGood CPU, Bad Fan

Pros: CPU runs great, very fast. runs 64-bit windows 7 and 64-bit linux Os's just fine. I bought this CPU along with a very nice video card for gaming about three years ago and can still play every game I have installed at full graphics settings.

Cons: The fan the CPU comes with is quite cheap. It uses aluminum or tin and the pins that hold it against the CPU are plastic and break really easily. When I took it off to clean the dust out of it the plastic holder broke and the CPU started overheating.

Other Thoughts: I recommend buying some Arctic silver thermal paste and a CPU fan made of copper when getting this CPU; however, if you can't afford another CPU fan then be VERY CAREFUL not to break the cheap plastic pins that hold the fan on.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Runs great, no problems at all. Have had this for three years and I am an advanced gamer and always multitasking. Im about to build a new rig and this is good enough that I am not going to replace it, just upgrading mobo/ram.

Cons: Price I guess. I paid this same price about 3 years ago. At that time it was great, but figured the price would have dropped by now.

5 out of 5 eggsE8500

Pros: Fast, stable, durable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Already outlived 1 mobo and getting ready to upgrade mobo and ram to keep running for another 2 yrs or more. Have had this since it came on market and a bit surprised the price is still the same

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased with this CPU

Pros: I've experienced stellar performance from this Core 2 Duo processor. The asking price is actually higher now than it was when I bought mine in April 09. I'm pretty sure that demand is still great because this is a tried and true performer.

Cons: No cons to list
