Intel Pentium E6300 Wolfdale 2.8GHz LGA 775 65W Processor BX80571E6300

  • 1066MHz FSB
  • 45nm Wolfdale 65W
  • 2MB L2 Cache
ICON Loading...

With the Wolfdale core, Intel pours more power into the Pentium package. The 45nm process lets Intel reduce power requirements to 65W. Lower power means less CPU heat, which means lower system heat and longer system life. They also pack more features into the chip.

The L2 cache has been bumped to 2MB and the Front Side Bus has been pushed to 1066MHz. You can now use both DDR2 and the hot new DDR3 memory for extreme performance. They also boosted memory access and execution speed with Wide Dynamic Execution and Smart Memory Access. These technologies work together to let the processor handle more instructions with more data per clock cycle. You'd better watch out -- your enemies will be shooting back faster now!

The Advanced Digital Media Boost feature has been enhanced with the addition of the SSE4 instruction set and Intel HD Boost, to give your entertainment experience better audio and video processing. It will also help with speech recognition, engineering and scientific applications. Most important of all is the enhanced security that comes with increased speed and encryption power.

  • newegg Specialized Dual-core Microarchitecture The Intel Pentium 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 mobile 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Processor for budget build

Pros: Dual core processor. A step up from the old single core Pentium 4.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This was used for a budget buld in 2010. The PC is still working and the customer is happy with it. His old broken PC had a Pentium 4 processor. So this was a step up for him.

Cons: wish i knew back when i built my PC that i could get everything cheaper by doing combos

Other Thoughts: Newegg great I love how i usually read the email saying ur package has just been shipped. so i go down stairs and open the door and there it is!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU for the price!

Pros: Fast, cheap, dual CPU! Great overclocking capability! This easily overclocks to 300 FSB and 3.14 ghz without increase in temps! No voltage increase needed! Fan is silent!

Cons: Not a quadcore, but what programs utilize that?

Other Thoughts: I love this CPU! With a GTS 450 it runs Starcraft 2 at 1080p on Ultra Settings!

5 out of 5 eggsCheap! Overclocks very well!

Pros: Cheap. And very fast when overclocked.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The stock fan came with 4 pin connector; means you can control the fan speed in BIOS if your motherboard supports a such feature.

Using on my multi-purpose HTPC which handles HD movies, internet uploads/downloads and video encoding/decoding. It was an upgrade from Celeron and what a difference!

5 out of 5 eggsE6300 Wolfdale

Pros: Simply excellent - went in easy. Heat sink fan almost silent. For the price spectacular.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Manual says that it should not get above 38 C. I found that it operates at only about 32 C even after running for hours.

5 out of 5 eggsFast CPU w/o problems

Pros: Easy install. Heatsink works great. No problems with applications. This PC was built for the purpose of troubleshooting other computers. But lately I've been pushing it with Games and Also with Video/Audio editing and capturing! NO PROBLEMS or LAG!!! In 3D gaming on medium settings, it will MAX OUT but it doesn't show signs of lag.

Cons: Some of the Video and audio work that I do requires mixdowns and encoding and this seems to take one of the cores to 100% and it is slow in this area. I'm sure if I had a 3.2 or something, this would go a lot faster.

Other Thoughts: In everything I've done, I can't see anything that would suggest that I need a CPU with more cache, just more # crunching power. It handles multitasking like a champ and I've even overclocked it to a little of 3.0 Ghz with no problems. I just don't keep it there cause I have a stock fan. If you're not spazzing about what you need your CPU to do, this is GREAT! It'll probably run with the best, cause when I tell it to do something, it does it. (xp, 2GB 800Mhz, IDE HDD 320GB, Asus MB with 800Mhz FSB)

4 out of 5 eggsGood Enough

Pros: Bought with a big hope to get 4.0 or more.
with Gts250 512MB, E6300, Gigabyte P35
Crysis - 1680 x 1050, very high, no AA
Cpu benchmark - 14.44 FPS when 2.8Ghz
Gpu benchmark - 15.42 FPS when 2.8Ghz
Cpu benchmark - 26.83 FPS when 3.78Ghz
Gpu benchmark - 27.75 FPS when 3.78Ghz
that to me is a pretty big increase when OCed. but could have been higher with higher clock

Cons: disappointed with overclocking capabilities, i heard that this chip could get 4.0 Ghz pretty easily, and saw lots of people who actually achieved it. im guessing i just got a chip from a bad batch. OC capabilities are different from chip to chip.. so....
see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: usually this chip should get to 4.0 with 1.375 vcore. but here are my tests which i got stable at
core voltage
2.8 1.2875 (stock)
3.36 1.2875 (stock)
3.41 1.3
3.46 1.325
3.51 1.3375
3.57 1.35
3.62 1.3625
3.67 1.3875
3.72 1.4125
3.78 1.4475

it sucks up 1.44V to get to 3.78Ghz.
with 92mm 4 Heatpipe Xigmatek cooler, temp is aroung 64C with 1.4475V, 3.78Ghz
