Pentium D Processor 840

The Pentium D: Intel's Dual Core Silver Bullet Previewed
By

We obtained a Pentium D Processor 840 for comparison reasons.

The Pentium D certainly is Intel's top product for this year. While the 2.8 and 3.0 GHz versions will be quite affordable at their expected $241 and $316 price points, a whopping $530 for the 3.2 GHz model is clearly too high given the small clock speed increments and the resulting miniscule performance benefits over the slightly slower models.

We used a 945G motherboard in our second test system.

CPU-Z is not yet able to detect both L2 caches. We took this screenshot while overclocking the Pentium Extreme Edition to 4 GHz.
