PC enthusiasts today want exceptional performance for video and audio encoding/decoding, digital media creation and multi-threaded gaming applications. Intel designed the most technologically advanced processor, the Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 965 processor, for users who expect more from their PC. This advanced dual core processor features two cores each running at 3.73GHz with integrated 2MB L2 cache. The cutting edge 65nm manufacturing process significantly reduces power consumption and improves thermal performance while the 1066MHz FSB delivers exceptional system bandwidth to maximize efficiency.
Other features include Intel Hyper-Threading, Virtualization, and Extended Memory 64 Technology with Execute Disable Bit. Support for the Hyper-Threading Technology enables each processor core to function as two logical processors to ensure four-thread functionality. With this high horsepower processor, you can build a system with the performance and features to accomplish more and provides an outstanding computing experience today with the ability to grow with tomorrow's applications and operating systems.
Dual-Core Processing with 2x2MB L2 Cache Intel dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 965 processors have two complete processor cores in one physical package running at the same frequency. The cores share the same interface with chipset and memory, but each core has its own set of registers and cache for truly parallel computing. Each processor core has its own 2MB L2 Cache (4MB total) enabling improved overall system performance by allowing each core to have faster access to larger amounts of the most often used area.
Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Hyper-threading technology takes advantage of threaded applications allowing each processor core to function as two logical processors to provide increased system responsiveness in multi-tasking environment. Threading divides workloads into processes and software threads that can be independently scheduled and dispatched. * Support for the Intel Hyper-Threading Technology enables the Intel dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 965 processor to function as four logical processors.
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.
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.
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.
