Intel Core 2 Duo E4700
Released March, 2008
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.

These processors are very energy efficient thanks to Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, which gives more instructions per clock cylce, and with Intel Intelligent Power capability. Intel Smart Memory Access optimizes the use of available bandwith while Intel Advanced Smart Cache runs a more efficient cache subsystem for multiple cores. Intel Advanced Digital Media Boost will help accelerate a wide variety of applications, including video, photo processing, encryption, financial, engineering and scientific applications.
