Intel Pentium E2140 Dual-Core Processor

If you thought the Pentium name was dead, think again. We've just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the performance, power consumption, and overclockability of Intel's brand-new Pentium E2140 dual-core processor. This chip is a derivative of the 'Conroe' core used in the Core 2 Duo family of processors, but with a smaller cache and lower FSB and core frequencies.  At under $100, it proved to be a solid value, especially after we overclocked it to almost 3GHz using the stock air-cooler.

This would be a great little HTP PC chip - cheap and cool at stock speed I imagine too.

I enjoyed the review, and in a way made me think back when AMD value chips were kicking pentium butt in all the perfomance charts. I'm glad that Intel has got their act straight and got few things together and produced these generation of Intel processors. Making consumers happy means making a lot of profits. Intel has stablished a reputation that AMD will have to fight for it.

interesting marketing......everyone knows the celerons are "no good" and stray from them, so now they scrap them and they take their once prized pentium label and stick it on their low-end CPUs. Genius! :p

The E2140 is shown as E2410 in all the graphs.
