Released January, 2007

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Can handle large processing loads without reaching its capacity. Multitasking is handled gracefully without reducing speed. Overclocking is easy, can handle a fair amount while remaining stable.

The Cons:Less cache than other CPUs in the same range. Uses "push pin" mounts that can be damaged if care isn't taken when putting it on the motherboard.

It also features a Digital Thermal Sensor that is embedded in the CPU that measures the temperature to optimize the operation of the processor and system fans. The Core 2 Quad series also have Wide Dynamic Execution which improves the execution speed and efficiency of the processor, and Virtualization Technology which allows one computer to operate as multiple “virtual” platforms.
