Why Was The Pendium D 805 Considered The Best of The Pentium D's? Tags: CPUs Pentium Last response: May 31, 2010 6:14 AM in CPUs Share godbrother May 31, 2010 1:25:21 AM Back in the day, everyone would always recommend the PD805 over the other Pentium D's. After a bit of googling, I've come to notice it was the lowest of the lot. Curiosity struck me a second ago to find out why. Any ideas? http://processorfinder.intel.com/List.aspx?ParentRadio=...

Getting about 1GHz+ overclock was nearly impossible and unheard of before that chip. That was what the fuss was all about. When the Core 2 came out, suddenly 50% overclocks became such a common thing. * But of course, if you did take into account the cost of the enthusiast grade components, you're probably better off with an X2 build anyway.
