Currently, users are already enjoying the power of simultaneous computing found in earlier Hyperthreading-enabled system then via dual-core processor with the Intel® Pentium® D processor. An Intel dual-core processor delivers consumer value by providing additional computing resources that expand the PC's capabilities and provide platform-level advancements for consumers in the form of higher throughput and simultaneous computing. With an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor, users may perform multiple tasks such as digital rendering and gaming all while running virus scan or other background tasks seamlessly, and they are doing it with less power consumption. It has great features for digital home computing, such as support for EM64T to enable the system to address more than 4GB of system memory and advance security functionality thru Execute Disable Bit that can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system, and with lots of new features found only on CPUs based on Intel® Core™ microarchitecture.
As stated earlier, this processor is slated at the middle line up of Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6000 series that is based on the LGA775 socket. And as such, can perform well even on stock settings and still suited for overclocking. Time to get this baby going, but first, let's lay down the details of this processor.
