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 1066MHz. 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.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.

5 out of 5 eggsFYI not all E6700's are equal. I did not know this.

Pros: Probably all sorts judging from the other reviews.

Cons: Not dummy proof

Other Thoughts: I looked at my motherboard specs and thought this would be a good upgrade. It said a "E6700 core 2 duo" not, E6700 dual core. Hindsight being what it is I should have known better. Not compatible with a Q965 chip set. You can't return CPU's for a full refund, anybody want to buy one cheap? Can't give a bad rating because of my mistake and lack of thorough research. Which I now have done. Anything you want to know about these chips just ask me, now. Oh, the tech knowledge thing? I'm beginning to wonder myself.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: I used this on my 1st every gaming build, Yes. For gaming.
Runs Amazing. I have no Knowledge of Overclocking at all and this CPU eats everything i toss at it. Great price for a great CPU.

Cons: I couldnt agree more with Luke Cool.
Ignorant review writers :
"Runs minecraft fine, at low settings, at around 30 fps." Bro. I run Aion at max settings with this Puppy. This CPU doesnt even fart. Really? Why the hate.

Other Thoughts: I dont really understand why people go uber High end on Rigs. I spend 850$ on my rig. everything from the ASC- to my Mouse and keyboard.
I got a friend with a rig he spend 4 on and when we game out everything looks the same. He thinks i spend 2.5K+ on my set up, LOL lets not tell him okay?

5 out of 5 eggsA well supported 3.2 GHz CPU is not slow.

Pros: I have upgraded several systems to this processor (personal and business). At the same time I also installed better and more memory, and a better power supply. This is a great CPU if you also install the correct parts to support it.

Cons: Ignorant review writers:
The person that said this CPU is ”A bit slow” doesn’t know what he is doing, a well supported 3.2 GHz CPU is not slow. I have 2 gaming computers with this CPU, and they play “Crysis 2” (on high) just fine.
What kind of moron would build a new system with 4 year old technology; OF COURSE it’s only good as an upgrade or repair.

Other Thoughts: In order to use extra cores, the operating system AND the programs you are running must know what to do with them. More than 80% of the programs and games are too simple to justify writing multi core usage into their programming. Because of this, for most programs, CPU speed is much more important than the number of cores. For most people’s purposes, a fast 2 core CPU will run much better than a slightly slower 4 core CPU.

5 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: low price dual-core processor
over-clocked to 3.5
handles all of my games and apps with ease

Cons: a bit out-dated being that its an LGA 775 and all.... but nothing really.

Other Thoughts: I used this in my first ever build, a budget gaming pc. i have trouble considering the more expensive processors for future builds because most of what i do is graphics heavy and relies mostly on the gpu. This one multi-tasks seamlessly.

4 out of 5 eggsStill Truckng

Pros: I've Had this for 3-4 years on a dell inspiron 530s.No problems so far stability wise. The heat-sink was fairly easy too dust out, but the fat was a leaf blower when dusty, but that mostly my fault.

Cons: A bit slow but for home users, old people, and everyday browsing of the web, email ect, this is fine. i3 is very much recommended though.

Other Thoughts: Runs minecraft fine, at low settings, at around 30 fps. Not best, but this targeted toward the consumers.

4 out of 5 eggsGuess it could be good

Pros: Fits perfectly and a breeze to install.

Cons: My older motherboard just won't recognize it! And since it's a CPU, no refunds. I've tried everything, but nothing will get it to function. No errors, no sounds. I put it in a Gateway computer with an Intel motherboard. Everything says it should work, but no go.

Other Thoughts: Newegg's customer service is great. Returned the 1st one thinking I got a bad chip. Obviously I was wrong. Replacement shipped out immediately and the communication from Newegg was great.

Guess I'll just have to do a complete build instead of an upgrade.

Anyone need this chip? Let me know! Maybe we can make a deal!

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice

Pros: I bought this For 80 bucks and free shipping.I built my budget gaming box with this.I put it in a biostar mobo and overclocked it to 3.8 stable.
$300.00 for a nice fast very overclockable setup.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: It might be dated but i am more than happy to run non cutting edge.It still does the job quite well.
If you need a nice little processor that is very fast don't hesitate.

5 out of 5 eggsgood chip

Pros: superfast compaired to old chip (1.8 duel). Great to hold on to older 775 board. with good cooling you can top-end game/push speed.
I really love this chip, and am going to hold on for a back-up system

Cons: same basic cons as any other chip...
