Hey everyone. I've been playing with one of Intel's Pentium D 805 processors for most of this morning, and have some interesting news to report.  If you're unfamiliar with the Pentium D 805, it's basically a cheap, dual-core CPU based on Intel's 90nm Smithfield core. What separates the Pentium D 805 from most of its Smithfield-based counterparts, is that the 805 rides on a 533MHz FSB. And it's also the lowest clocked dual-core desktop processor available from Intel at the moment at 2.66GHz. This, of course, makes the Pentium D 805 a potential candidate for overclockers on a budget looking... Read more...
About three months ago, we took a look at the Pentium Extreme Edition 955, which was Intel's first Extreme Edition processor built using the company's then brand-new 65nm manufacturing process. Each of the 955XE chip's two cores hummed along at a lofty 3.46GHz, and we found its performance to be quite good when compared to Intel's previous dual-core and single-core offerings. The Pentium Extreme Edition 955 was clearly Intel's fastest desktop dual-core processor in our tests, and due to the inherent benefits of the more advanced manufacturing process, the chip consumed much less power than its...

Not sure we agree with Hardcoreware.net's contention that "the playing field is level" now that AMD and Intel both offer dual-core processors, but if you want to see how the Athlon 64 X2 stacks up against a Pentium D, they've got some benchmarks for you to chew on. When you're done though, make sure to check out our Athlon 64 FX-60 and Pentium Extreme Edition 955 articles as well."Deciding between an Athlon64 and a Pentium 4 used to be a generally tough decision. AMD was easily faster in games, but the Pentium 4 was always backed by superior platforms (Intel's own chipsets), better multitasking... Read more...
Our friends at the TechReport have just posted and article that pits Intel's Pentium M 760 up against AMD's Turion 64 ML-44.  These two mobile CPUs represent the best single-core technology available from AMD and Intel for the mobile space.  Core Duo is here and dual-core Turions are on the Horizon, but if you want to know which processor reigns supreme in the current landscape, Scott's bound to give you his opinion. "ALTHOUGH INTEL HAS BEEN STRUGGLING on the desktop front of late, things on the mobile side have been going just fine,... Read more...
The Pentium-D 900 series is the next evolution in Intel's Dual-Core plans.  The Pentium-D 900 offers a total of 2MB of L2 cache per core while also adding support for Virtualization.  Thanks to an improve 65nm manufacturing process, the Pentium-D 900 series also offers lower power consumption as well.  Building on "Smithfields' successes, the new Pentium-D "Pressler" 900 series aims to add new pressure to AMD with performance and competitive pricing."The hip, newly-styled, fresh-and-in-your-face Intel is looking to freshen up the Pentium-D family with one last hoorah...

Intel sure sees something special with their Pentium M architecture, with their next set of CPUs like Yonah, Conroe and Woodcrest being built on it. Hardware Secrets takes you through 7 pages of Pentium M explanation."In this tutorial we will explain you how Pentium M CPU works in an easy to follow language. Since all new CPUs from Intel will use Pentium M's architecture, studying this architecture is very important to understand the architecture of forthcoming CPUs like Yonah, Conroe and Woodcrest. You will learn exactly how its architecture works so you will be able to compare it more precisely... Read more...

Intel has been relatively quiet over the last eight months or so, since the initial release of the dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition 840 processor back in early April of this year. The company has released an entire line of dual-core 'Pentium D' processors since then, and have also introduced a number of new core logic chipsets as well, including the recently released 975X Express chipset.  However, they've been content to have the 3.2GHz Pentium Extreme Edition 840 as their flagship desktop processor for quite some time. Courtesy of its dual Hyper-Threading enabled execution cores, the 3.2GHz... Read more...
The Register has dissected (and translated) information from a post on the Japanese website PC Watch that seems to indicate that Intel might be dropping the name "Pentium" from its future products. Although it seems crazy to throw away one of the most recognized brand names on the face of the earth, Intel might be making a wise decision if they want to lose some of the negative stigma (power consumption, excessive heat, etc.) they've experienced in the press the last year or two.The new architecture, with is focus on performance per Watt, rather than raw horsepower, warrants new, distinct...

The Pentium 4 processor was first released in November of 2000. Over the past five years, we've seen a lot of changes happen to Intel's precious processing baby. With all the different core revisions and the features they have, it's a little difficult to keep up with what the various Pentium 4 chips have to offer. Hardware Secrets looks to make the job a little easier with their Pentium 4 model reference."Intel Pentium 4 Processor was released in November 2000, using Intel's seventh x86 microarchitecture, called Netburst. Pentium 4 processors can be found in three different core versions: Willamette,... Read more...

Hey everyone, here's your afternoon dose of news. I need to suck down a couple coffees and head out, so let's get to it... Dual-core-capable Pentium platforms compared @ The Tech Report "Intel's dual-core chips may be cheap, but they won't plug into just any LGA775 motherboard. The processors require a chipset from Intel's 955/945 family or NVIDIA's nForce4 SLI Intel Edition, so upgrading is more involved than simply buying a new CPU. Fortunately, motherboard manufacturers have flocked to Intel and NVIDIA's new chipsets, so there's no shortage of dual-core-compatible motherboards from which... Read more...
