Product Description

The Intel Core 2 Duo processors are built in several of the world's most advanced, high-volume output manufacturing facilities using Intel's leading silicon process technology. The processor family is based on the revolutionary Intel Core microarchitecture, designed to provide powerful yet energy-efficient performance. With the power of dual cores, or computing engines, the processors can manage numerous tasks faster. They also can operate more smoothly when multiple applications are running, such as writing e-mails while downloading music or videos and conducting a virus scan. The Intel Core 2 Duo desktop processor delivers revolutionary dual-core performance and breakthrough processor energy efficiency. With Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, Intel Smart Memory Access, Intel Advanced Smart Cache and Intel Digital Media Boost, this new processor is designed to do more in less time. Additional features to support enhanced security, virtualization, and 64-bit computing make the Intel Core 2 Duo the most impressive new processor developed for an increasingly multimedia-centered, high-definition world. Design changes in the Intel Core 2 Duo processors that improve performance also increase processor energy efficiency by operating at lower frequencies that require less power to run. Intel Intelligent Power Capability optimizes energy usage of the processor cores by turning on computing functions only when needed. This more energy-efficient processor supports smaller, more capable, and quieter desktop PC to conserve critical power resources.

Built for mainstream users who might occasionally require some additional performance, Intel? Core?2 Duo processors featuring Intel's exclusive 45nm architecture are ideal for users interested in surfing the Web, checking email, shopping online, manipulating images, downloading, and watching videos!all at the same time. Robust multitasking capabilities ensure that a computing platform featuring the dual-core Intel Core 2 Duo processor won't slow down, even when running multiple software applications simultaneously.

Intel Technology
45nm Hafnium-Based Architecture. Thanks to a naturally occurring element called Hafnium, Intel engineers were able to shrink the size of new Intel processors and pack more computing technology into less space. The result is improved performance with less energy wastage.

Intel? Wide Dynamic Execution. Enables the delivery of more instructions per clock cycle for shorter execution times and improved energy efficiency!accomplish more simultaneously and with greater efficiency.

Intel? Intelligent Power Capability. Turning off portions of the processor when they aren't being used improves overall energy efficiency and reduces heat production, resulting in a quieter, more energy efficient system.

Intel? Smart Memory Access. Increasing available data bandwidth means more multitasking with less slowdown!run more demanding applications simultaneously and accomplish more in less time.

Intel? Advanced Smart Cache. Placing data closer to the processing cores improves platform responsiveness and performance with a wide range of applications.

Intel? Advanced Digital Media Boost. Accelerates performance with a wide range of applications, including video, gaming, speech and image, photo processing, encryption, financial, engineering and scientific applications.

Intel? HD Boost. Available only on the latest 45nm Intel processors, this revolutionary technology takes Intel? Advanced Digital Media Boost and improves it even further, enabling significant gains on the latest SSE4 instruction set. SSE4-optimized applications, such as video editing and encoding in high-definition resolution will see additional performance improvements

Performance for Multitasking
With two powerful and highly efficient processing cores, the Intel Core 2 Duo processor frees you to run multiple software applications at the same time without compromising performance or responsiveness. Everything including email, downloading, online shopping, and video editing can be done simultaneously and with greater efficiency. No longer is it necessary to choose between work and play.

Energy Efficiency
When working or playing hard, you want to keep distractions to a minimum. Thanks to Intel's exclusive 45nm technology, the Intel Core 2 Duo processor runs very efficiently!consuming less energy and producing less heat then previous-generation processors. Since desktop PCs featuring the Intel Core 2 Duo processor run cooler, they require less cooling, meaning fewer fans and a quieter computing experience. And with energy-saving features that shut down portions of the processor when they are not in use, the Intel Core 2 Duo processor is easier on your energy bill and the environment.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great!
    I've been using this processor for a few months now in my gaming computer. I've got it paired with 2 GBs of RAM and a Nvidea Geforce 9600 GT running Widows Vista Home Premium 32 bit. For gaming, usually the Graphics Card is the bottleneck, but I had been using the exact same setup with an older Pentium D 2.8 Ghz Dual Core. After switching it everything runs at a higher frame-rate. I would imagine most people who are building a gaming system would do fine with this processor. ...more info
  • Very good processor
    I have this in a mini-ITX build, with a 250 watt power supply, 4 gigs of ram, 4 hard drives, and a Zotac motherboard. As a developer, I often work with multiple emulators at once which can take a lot of processing power. I was considering moving to a Q9650, but the E8400 hasn't any had trouble doing anything I have asked of it. For half the price and less wattage, you would have to be silly to go for the Quad Core over this. ...more info
  • Excelente!!!!
    Estoy sorprendido por lo facil que pude llevar este procesador de 3 ghz a 4.1 ghz sin problemas y sin tener que subirle el voltaje. Y lo mejor de todo es que gracias a su tecnologia de 45nm no se calienta para nada.

    Este es un excelente procesador para aquellos que utilizan sus PCs para jugar. ...more info
  • IS THIS COMPATIBLE WITH MY SYSTEM?
    have been reading great reviews about this and really want to buy it, but, will it be compatible with my system?
    I have a dell dimension 4700

    ALSO: are there instructions on how to install it?...more info
  • Excellent CPU
    This CPU ran well out of the box, I encountered no problems with installation of the cpu. The included fan/heat sink is difficult to install, but worth the effort - be patient. Win XP with Svc Pack 3 runs smoothly....more info
  • fast
    Super fast processor, very stable operation has been pretty good with video editing. faster than the old q6000 series quad cores. So far I've only had it clocked to 3.33GHz where it was stable in my hot case....more info
  • Awsome Chip
    The only problem i have come across with this chip was with the cooler that came with it (i should have known better anyway). The cooler is spring loaded, and one of the screws popped up during normal use, causing the cpu to get really hot and almost burnt it out. I closely monitor my systems heat so i was ontop of it within moments, but if it happened when i wasnt home my whole system would have been finished.

    Once i traded out coolers i havent had a hiccup. And like i said before, i should have known better once i saw the spring loaded screws for the cooler....more info
  • Amazon ships at the right time
    The processor has good speed and handles good workload, yet i'm not sure about the heat generation i didn't use the ordinary fan came with it and i bought other special fan and that fan keeps it at 40c, amazon ships at the right time and the handling of shipment is good.

  • Intel E8400 duo processor
    This processor is everything people say it is and then some. It is super fast. Whether you are using it for gaming or multimedia or both, I am sure it will handle all of your needs. Well worth the price....more info
  • Quad cores have nothing on this.
    Yes I'm aware that this is a dual core but I've done my research and this Wolfdale core kicks the snot out of similiar priced quad cores. Runs cool and efficient, as far as performance to cost ratio, buy this CPU....more info
