Pentium D Processor 840
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.
