Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 Vs Pentium Dual-Core E6300

Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 Vs Pentium Dual-Core E6300

These two processor compete neck to neck, and even though E7500 is priced substantially higher, it does not turn out to be as fast as one would think. We expect that Intel will phase this processor over the time,  otherwise the customers will phase it out.

It is time to focus on the Intel’s new Sandy Bridge Architecture.

Core 2 Duo E7500 Details

The Core 2 Duo E7500 is slightly overpriced compared to the performance is provides ( $113 according to Intel, at the time of writing). We have some sub $100 Athlon ii quad cores processors that can easily beat E7500 in performance. The lack of Integrated Memory controller chokes the processor to memory communication. Overclockers may be able to get some more juice out of it.

Some more details of Pentium Dual-Core E6300

The dual core Pentium E6300 is low cost ( $74) processor that competes in its price range with AMD’s dual core Athlon ii and Phenom ii clocked about the same. The Pentium E6300, does not come with integrated memory controller. Its FSB at 1066 MHz creates bottleneck in memory as well as south bridge communication. The main charm of this processors seems to be its low price ( though its big brothers E6500 and E6700 seem more attractive). None of the Sandy Bridge processors launched ( even the entry level low clocked i3s) come in as low price range as this one

    The Pentium Serious is yet another addition to the confusingly long list of the the number of processor launch. Intel could keep the things simple. There was no need of a Pentium Series for these architecture.

    It is driven by the greed of Intel, wanting to take advantage of the Pentium brand name.
