Quad-core processor: Provides four complete execution cores in a single processor with up to 12 MB of L2 cache and up to a 1333 MHz Front Side Bus. Four dedicated, physical threads help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance, so end users can experience better multi-tasking and multi-threaded performance across many types of applications and work loads.

Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology

Intel EM64T (Intel EM64T requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel EM64T. Processor will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel EM64T-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on your hardware and software configurations.)

Enhanced Halt State (C1E)

Execute Disable Bit (Enabling Execute Disable Bit functionality requires a PC with a processor with Execute Disable Bit capability and a supporting operating system. Check with your PC manufacturer on whether your system delivers Execute Disable Bit functionality)

Good CPU. I paid a more over a year ago. It will overclock to 3Ghz with next to no impact on heat or stability.

is it worth replacing an e8200 for this?

Yes, I would say so.

Yes, I would say so.



Depends on what the system is used for really...

If its only for surfing the net and playing a few old games, then i cant really see it making any difference.

If its used for video encoding and things that are written specifically for quad cores then yes.

If s/he just wants "faster games" then a graphics card will be a better investment.

It will also depends on what games that they are wanting to play.

i've got a ati 4670 atm
i guess it isn't worth it - I only play C&C and mostly just surf
I don't think it speeds up generall used programs then
maybe a faster hard drive?

thanks you two!
