Intel Pentium E5500 Dual-Core 2.8GHz LGA 775 Desktop Processor BX80571E5500

  • 800MHz FSB
  • 45nm
  • 2MB L2 Cache
ICON Loading...

With the Wolfdale core, Intel pours more power into the Pentium package. The 45nm manufacturing tech allows Intel to reduce power requirements to 65W. Lower power means less CPU heat, which translates to 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 800MHz. 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!

  • 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 simultaneously, resulting in revolutionary dual-core performance, breakthrough energy efficiency and exceptional system response time when running multi-threaded applications, or multiple demanding applications. The innovative 45nm fabrication technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel 64 Intel 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4 GB of both 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, which means of enabling very high performance while also meeting the power-conservation needs.
  • 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 of the memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code into the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggsReal nice still

Pros: I'm using a lil ole rosewill 92mm intel 775 hs/fan on this puppy and it's been running an overclock of 3.3 from day one nice and cool. My E8500 is going strong and is still a powerful cpu for anything, still over priced though. I use my amd x6 as my win 2008 r2 server and this rig and my E8500 rig as clients. The E8500 has enterprise on it, this will have an enterprise vhd.

Cons: None, I got this for under 70 bones.

Other Thoughts: I use this on an old asus P41 for majic jack and web surfing and online movies using the onboard intel video. This works well for those app's. A 3.3 constant overclock at under 1.3vcore is impressive. I needed this rig due to my main mover and shaker rig being a high wattage xfired rig and I didn't want to run all that power just to use majic jack and surf the web. This cpu is still a viable option, I did put a 5670 on the board at first and played left for dead for awhile, but I found the onboard worked for everything I need and now I stick to gaming on amd's 1090t w/ 5850's xfired.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade for HP Mediasmart EX490

Pros: Excellent upgrade for the HP Mediasmart EX490 which comes with a piddly Celeron CPU. The EX495 comes with an E5200, so this CPU is more than a match.

Cons: Now that the E5700 and E5800 has dropped in price it's pretty much the same cost.

Other Thoughts: Of course, the Mediasmart home servers are now discontinued, but if you're looking for a good upgrade and can pick up an EX490 on the cheap this is a great buy.

4 out of 5 eggsToo new for my motherboards

Pros: fast and inexpensive dual core upgrade for email machines
runs cool
low power

Cons: This chip is too new for my motherboards. I flashed the BIOS and I get random crashes, BSOD, and weird errors all the time.

Other Thoughts: Spent three days trying to figure this out until I looked at the motherboard page and seen it doesn't support any of the newer chips. These new chips are made just last year and are incompatible with older boards if the company doesn't have a recent BIOS to install.

I'm debating if I want to buy a newer motherboard, or just return this chip and build a new i3 system for about $75 more.

5 out of 5 eggsNice CPU

Pros: Very nice CPU for older model. Runs pretty cool using the stock heat sink and fan, of course my PC case also has 3 fans in it which probably help! RUNS FAST!!

Cons: Nothing that I can think of, there may be SOMETHING in a few years...

5 out of 5 eggsBetter Than I imagined!

Pros: Lightning fast, inexpensive, works great!

Cons: Runs a little hot for my taste. Using included heatsink and paste. But my extra fan can fix that.

Other Thoughts: Used this cpu to upgrade from an old Celeron E1400. What a difference! PC boot time went from 30 seconds to 18! Using Kubuntu 11.04 A2.
