Intel Pentium E5700 Processor Review

October 27th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Intel Pentium E5700 is a fast dual core  3 GHz processor intended for moderate to high performance desktop computing. performance. Unlike the newer core i3 and i5 processors,  E5700 does not support Hyperthreading , leading to slightly low performance (in most cases) .   The Pentium E5700 has L2 cache of 2 MB.

The Pentium E5700 communicates with the chipset using 800 MHz Front Side Bus ( FSB). The E5700 does not has integrated memory controller, which means that the processor will have to first communicate with the front side Bus, which, in turn, will communicate to the memory. This approach increases the memory latency and reduces performance. The larger amount  L2 Cache (2 MB) , helps alleviate this problem partly.

Did you know ?

The Intel dual core i3-530, even with marginally lower 2.93 GHz frequency outperfoms Pentium E5700. Read the Pentium E5700 Vs Core i3-530.

Built with 45 nm technology, the Pentium E5700 has a TDP rating of 65 Watts. The processor is designed for desktops with good heat ventilation system in place.

The Pentium E5700 does not has integrated graphics and it does not has any turbo boost functionality as in the newer core i3 and core i5 processors.

Let us take a look at the quick pros and cons of the Intel Pentium E5700.

Pentium E5700 Pros Fast 3 GHz processor Has two cores Competitively priced

Pentium E5700 Cons no integrated Memory controller slow fsb heats more

The processor is competitively priced at $64 at the time of writing according to the Intel source.

Some of the desktops and all in one PCs that have Pentium E5700 processor include

– HP All in one 500t
– Acer AZ5600-U2092 23-Inch Full HD All-in-One Desktop
– ZT Element 2141Li Desktop PC available at Walmart

    Intel Pentium Dual Core is a mid range processor, I am basically onto Programming, Graphics Design and little bit of Gaming (not latest at all). I have three PC’s. 1)Core2Duo E7500 with 2 GB of RAM, ECS G31 Chipset Motherboard and I use XFS Graphics Card 1GB (256bit), 2) The other PC has the same hardware components except the CPU is Pentium Dual Core E5700 and finally the third one is Sony VAIO Notebook PC (VPCEH15EN), I am not quoting any thing about my notebook since I just tried to compare my both Desktop Machines. I ran some productivity software’s, PhotoShop 7.1 (Which is pretty old), Windows DVD Maker, Format Factory and played some games like Delta Force Black Hawk Down, Counter Strike, Wolfenstien and finally ran a benchmarking software LINPACK and also ran Windows Experience Index on both PC’s. Practically both the processors have similar performance except the price of Core2Duo costed me approximately $150 (February 2010) and the Pentium Dual Core costed me only $ 68 ( May 2011). There is not much to compare between this processors, buying Pentium Dual Core is much better idea if you plan to install a discrete graphics and the performance cap is similar.
