This Celeron processor proves that single cores aren't dead. It moves right along at 3.33 Ghz with a 533 Mhz front-side bus and close to half a megabyte of L2 cache. Both 64 bit ready and Vista ready, it also supports multi-media instruction sets MMX, SSE, SSE2, and SSE3.
Not excited? How about the price, then? You know what processors are going for these days; this is a lot of bang for your buck.
There's not much more to tell you about a processor. Is this the one for you? Check it out and decide for yourself. No pressure, but we think you'll like it.
- 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.
