Intel Pentium E6600 Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.06GHz LGA 775 65W Desktop Processor BX80571E6600

  • 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.

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 eggsE6600 - P2C not C2D

Pros: Fast* and reliable, overclockable with negligible thermal penalty, and cost-effective.

*relative to $ outlay

Cons: None in this budget range.

Other Thoughts: As an advocate of trailing edge tech, I got an E2180 as the initial processor for my GA-P35-DS3R 2.0 (late 2007) In May of 2012, I pepped up that machine with a new E6600 and am very pleased. There are many options with this combination for overclocking, and the combo is very stable with the stock heat sink/fan, hardly ever budging past 41C at +20% ~ + 30%. I expect YMMV but this "Pentium Dual Core" (don't ask me what the contrast is with a Core 2 Duo)
is a good way to add some pep to a "mature" system.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great =)

Pros: Works wonderfully. Just slapped it in there and it worked. Small upgrade from my 2.80Ghz, but worth it, especially for $80. Much cheaper than buying a whole new board and processor when money is scarce.

Cons: I didn't get free ice-cream with it =(

Other Thoughts: Much higher than this, for this socket, starts getting pricey. Good deal imo.

Pros: Its runs good stays under 50c even at max load takes most of everything i toss at it dose exactly what a dual core cpu is supposed to do

Cons: NoN it is a great CPU

5 out of 5 eggsMy goodness!

Pros: Can not believe the clock cores on this thing, uses very little power, creates next to no heat.
Easy to overclock, will almost match an i5 overclocked. Deathly serious.
Can not stress that this is probably the best Dual Core available on LGA 775.

Cons: Dual Core

Other Thoughts: Buy this processor to give your old family computer a boost into the new world. I haven't found anything that has given me problems. Runs excellent. Benchmarked Mafia 2 (2GB DDR2 Ram, this processor, EVGA GTX 560 se 1GB) at 48.2 fps average. Beastly for this old dusty set up!

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Nice reliable CPU for the money.

Cons: Too bad Socket 775 is being phased out. They did well over their life. I have a couple of Socket 775 computers around that I like to keep running, along with DDR2 memory (RIP).

4 out of 5 eggsvery nice

Pros: A nice upgrade to my dell. a very noticeable speed increase i like it. no troubles on the reboot.

Cons: the fan was not interchangeable with my MB but the original was twice the size so i just reused it

Other Thoughts: I will come back to new egg for the rest of my build! a frankenstien is in the future only for my games though. ps the parts came fast.
