The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow.
  • newegg Supports Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) With Intel VT, one hardware platform functions as multiple "virtual" platforms. For business, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, Intel VT allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members using the same platform simultaneously.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.
  • newegg Scalability and Performance with Intel EM64T Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) can improve performance by allowing the system to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory. Intel EM64T also provides support for 64 bit computing to help handle the applications of tomorrow.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Need to Upgrade 7 Years On

Pros: My old Dell Inspiron 530 desktop came with this processor, bought (I think) about 2008 and has been completely trouble-free, even with thousands of hours of "hard labor" at distributed computing (looking for ET with SETI@home) for a few hours pretty much on a daily basis, as well as the usual home computer stuff. It's currently running with Windows 7, but has done fine with XP and Vista. The only negatives I've seen are power usage, well over 200 watts when doing the SETI number crunching at 80% plus capacity (vs about 100 watts at light duty), but hey, I don't need a space heater in here when it's working. And it didn't get along well with Corel Paint Shop Pro XIII, but I think that was Corel's fault (later versions are OK). I was thinking about replacing the old Dell, that's why I was reading these old reviews trying to determine what processor would be a good upgrade, and was pleased to find that what I have is still just fine, I've got good video and USB3 with add-on cards, and the only antique-ey thing I can't change is the DDR2 memory, but that doesn't seem to be a problem, so maybe I'm good for another few years.

Cons: Power draw and heat are a bit high under extreme use

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Having purchased this processor for a custom build in 2007, I am still amazed at what it can handle in 2014. If you're trying to build a PC on a budget and can get your hands on one of these it will be well worth the money.

Cons: Motherboards which support this chip-set are becoming scarce and expensive.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Q6600 7 year old B-Day!

Pros: Today is its 7 year old B-day on the same Motherboard I bought it to put it in for the first time. D975XBX2. Overclocked it to 2.99 Ghz 5 years ago and still at that speed because it is rock solid!

Cons: Was never able to get it to be stable at 3.4 but eh....

Other Thoughts: For how long this chip has lasted and still keeps going on its current clock speed I will defiantly buy an Intel again once this thing dies if ever!

5 out of 5 eggsIntell really does last

Pros: I've had this processor since 2008. I can't beleive it's still running like its new. handles everything without issue. easily the longest lasting part of my desktop. you bet your sweet tush when this one kicks the bucket im getting another intel. I've even overclocked it to 2.66 ghz (3.00ghz for a while but it wasn't nessessary), and I do alot of heavy gaming.

Cons: None. Never a single issue all these years.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best Early Quad Core Processor

Pros: One of the earliest Quad Core processors. Good price for the performance. Longest lasting processor I have ever owned. Even the Intel heat sink and fan are quality parts.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I created this review six years after this processor purchase date as a tribute to this beast. If you are looking for an old cheap workhorse then feel confident in purchasing this even used. I actually gave a PC with this processor away. It will still have no issues handling all office related tasks and newish games.

5 out of 5 eggsStill works!

Pros: Is still fast enough for everything we need to do on our home computer. After upgrading to a solid state drive a couple months ago, this computer feels almost as fast as my new i5-3560k system. It also overclocks to 2.8GHz or so but I'm running on stock.

Cons: None whatsoever

5 out of 5 eggsStill Kicking

Pros: Was fast then, is still fast. Yes, you can get a way better one now but I've had this since 2008 and it still runs no problems.

Cons: Slow compared to i7

Other Thoughts: I'm going to use this until it stops working. It is fast enough for any game I've played so far.
