  • Conclusion: As usual there's a hefty price on this right now, but the new transistor technology and larger cache seem to have given this CPU a nice boost over its predecessor. If you want the extra speed and would also like to do some overclocking it's worth considering.
  • Pros: 45-nanometre transistors, overclockable, new SSE4 instruction set
  • Cons: Current motherboard's may need a BIOS upgrade before this CPU will work
