Summary: Good chip. Can be easily overclocked. Being overclocked allows my 7-year PC still be of use, to run virtualization software and do some testing for my SMB IT projects. Don't decommission your old P4-based PC, just upgrade it with Pentium D. Nowadays you can easily afford it, much cheaper than 5-6 years ago.
Summary: It is strange to write a review on a discontinued processor. But let me tell you that the new processor do not work as well as this processor does. It is because regular users do not know how to use the features of new processors, and as a matter of fact, very few people do. Just those who know how to squeeze the benefits of technology. This processor is used, in my case, for mathematical calculations, and no quad cores or core 2 duos do as fast as this old processor do.
