Core 2 Duo E4300 Reviews

Looking at current reports, Intel's Core 2 Duo E4000-series processors are looking exciting. Value priced and without much of a compromise in performance, it looks like Intel is looking to capture the mainstream processory market. Intel Core 2 Duo E4300: Affordable and Highly Overclockable @ Anandtech With the E6420 and E6320 getting 4MB L2s, there's now room for a lower end Core 2 Duo SKU with a 2MB L2 cache again: enter the Core 2 Duo E4000 series. Due to launch this month, the Core 2 Duo E4300 will eventually be followed by the Core 2 Duo E4400 (released in Q2). Both are dual core offerings like their 6000 series siblings, but differentiate themselves by only featuring a 2MB L2 cache, lower clock speeds, 800MHz FSB and feature no support for Intel Virtualization Technology. However, given that VT isn't anywhere near being a mainstream requirement, the E4000 series ends up being a cheap way of getting Core 2 Duo performance. Cheaper Core Micro-Architecture: Core 2 Duo E4300 CPU Review @ X-Bit Labs In this article we'll be discussing the new Core 2 Duo E4300 processor that we've been lucky to get into our hands. This CPU is most interesting today not only because it is based on the new Allendale core. It also differs from its senior mates in its support for an 800MHz FSB. This makes it a wanted product for an overclocker who will be able to overclock it without increasing the FSB frequency to an extremely high level.
