Whether editing video, playing graphic-intensive games or running multiple background tasks at once, users today have high expectations for PC performance with little tolerance for degradation in experience. For users who run multiple demanding applications simultaneously, the Intel Pentium D processor is Intel's preferred desktop processor.
Because it has two execution cores, the Intel Pentium D 805 processor offers exceptional functionality and performance for extreme productivity and enjoyment under high demand. Featuring a 533MHz FSB, 2MB (1MB x 2) L2 cache, and an operating speed of 2.66GHz, this versatile processor maximizes your multi-tasking experience. Speed alone, though isn't enough to ensure a great experience. Today's users require the power of simultaneous computing found in a dual-core processor.
An Intel dual-core processor provides exceptional value by providing more resources that expand the PC's capabilities and provide platform-level advancements for consumers in the form of higher throughput and simultaneous computing. With an Intel Pentium D processor users may perform multiple tasks such as digital rendering and gaming all while running virus scan or other background tasks seamlessly.
- The Power of Dual-Core Delivers Exceptional Benefits to Your PlatformIntel dual-core processors have two complete but distinct execution cores in one processor package running at the same frequency. Both cores share the same packaging and the same interface with the chipset memory, but they operate as distinct execution cores. Dual-core processing is one way of delivering a higher level of performance while balancing power requirements.
- Scalability and Performance with Intel EM64TIntel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) can improve performance by allowing the system to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory. Intel EM64T also provides support for 64 bit computing to help handle the applications of tomorrow.
- 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.
