Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 Vs Pentium Dual-Core E6700


Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 Vs Pentium Dual-Core E6700 Comparison by starredreviews.com

Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 is slightly overpriced, while we do not see its justification.  According to Intel the Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 is priced at $113.00 while the Dual-Core E6700 is priced at just $75. ( See resources at bottom for Intel prices)

The Dual-Core E6700 therefore seems to be more positioned to take on the sub $100 and even cheaper Athlon ii dual core and quad core processors.

Some more details of Core 2 Duo E7500

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 E6700

The dual core Pentium E6700 is low cost ( $75) processor that competes in its price range with AMD’s dual core Athlon ii and Phenom ii clocked about the same. The Pentium E6700, 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 processorshttp://starredreviews.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=7191&action=edit&message=6 seems to be its low price. None of the Sandy Bridge processors launched ( even the entry level low clocked i3s) come in as low price range as this one.
