All other Wolfsdale cores show as C2D. I'm wondering, beyond the obvious spec limitations(cache,fsb), is there something I'm not seeing as to why not include it in C2D. The main reason why this cpu caught my eye is because of the high multiplier. Could be a good OCer for the money.
Those are really the only differences. I believe they also have virtualization disabled. These are just like the E2xxx versions of the Conroe core. Intel chose to market them under the Pentium name for lower-end computers.
You are right, the high multiplier will most likely make it a very strong budget overclocker. I believe these have been hitting 4GHz+ on air.
Basically Intel has spent billions of dollars and years of effort in marketing the 'Pentium' name, so it would be a waste to dump it by the wayside. Therefore the upper low-end parts get the 'Pentium Dual-Core' moniker instead of Core2 or Celeron.
