Intel Core 2 Duo E4700


$150.00 Released March, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:A good upgrade for an aging desktop that came with a Pentium 4/Pentium D. Good for overclocking - can easily be pushed over 3GHz. Included fan is relatively quiet.

The Cons:Hard to find - no longer available from most retailers. Only 2MB of cache - competing chips have 4MB. Includes a poorly designed heatsink - uses Intel's pushpins.

The Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 is a 2.60 GHz, 800MHz FSB processor with 2MB Cache and falls near the bottom of Intel's line of Core 2 Duo Processors. All processors in this line have 2 cores (hence the name) meaning they have two distinct processors on one chip allowing them to work seperately or together on a single large task.
