Almost by accident, I was recently shopping online and found the Intel E3300 45nm Dual-Core Celeron processor. Looking at the E3300 SLGU4 specifications, I noticed that it offers 1Mb of Level 2 cache and an impressive 2.5Ghz clock speed. Since this Intel Socket 775 CPU uses Core 2 Duo technology that means it can overclock and will outperform many other Celeron models on the market today.
Scrapping the bottom of Intel’s processor line, we discover the E1400 2.0Ghz Dual Core product. Looking at the E1400 specifications can be quite confusing since it seems that the dual cores all you really need to run Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
The AMD Sempron 140 processor is currently the lowest priced AM3 computer chip on the market today. While it may do a good job of performing daily tasks it is still slowed by a single core. Keep reading to find out how to unlock additional cores easily absolutely free.
I have been waiting to try these new AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ processor for a while now and I got my chance when a new client of mine asked me to build a system for him with the new dual core processor. I told him about these X2 series processor and he readily agreed to get this 4800+. The X2 series of processor are just the FX processor with dual cores and some other enhancements, so you can only expect the best power and performance from these.
So AMD finally decided to convert their best processors (the FX Series) into dual cores. My first thought is, wow I would like to get my hands on that and luckily I get my chance at work. This time I have to build a new computer for my desk as the old one fried because I overclocked it too much (I told them that the processor was bad and have to buy/build a new system… Shhhhh).
After reading a review about this AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ processor, I was restless to upgrade my already upgraded processor. I just needed one good reason to buy it, and I got that reason this just last month. It was thanksgiving and there was a big sale at my favorite computer store, CompUSA.
The AMD Sempron 3000+ was the smoothest and fastest processor that I bought after I got tired of my AMD Athlon XP 2500+. Even though it was not much of an upgrade (the 2500+ was 1.8GHz and the 3000 is 2.0GHz), I was very happy with it, until I sold it with a system I built for my boss. I will try my best to get all of the most helpful information on this review, but since it is my third review about processors I may miss some information. Please refer to the How to purchase a processor guide for full details on what questions to ask yourself before purchasing a processor.
The AMD Athlon XP 2500+ was the fastest processor I had until I upgraded to my new AMD Athlon 64 4000+ which is furious. I had used this processor in my first built system for about six to eight months and during that time I never had any problems with it. I will try my best to get all of the most helpful information on this review, but since it is my second about processors I may still leave some information out (using the same layout).
