  • Summary: Last year Intel gave us the Core 2 Duo, a competitively priced CPU with very acceptable prices for the low and mid-range. This year Intel introduced newer models from low to high end, we take a look at the new low priced E2160 model which has less L2 cache but higher multiplier and compare it with the low end part from last year, the E6300.

Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2160 - The Next Overclocking Wonder

Hardware Zone
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: As the new entry level dual-core processor, the Pentium Dual-Core series entered into the processor market last quarter to offer an efficient and lower cost alternative to the aging Pentium D series and even the Pentium 4 processors. And so the Pentium Dual-Core series sported the same tried and tested Core microarchitecture of the Core 2 Duo series - with the exception of the 'puny' 1MB L2 cache and a constrained 800MHz FSB.

  • Excerpt: The intel dual core range was extended down beyond the original core2duo and branded with the well known Pentium brand name. These chips are significantly cheaper than the core2duo (c2d) chips but are just cut down versions based on the same architecture. They run at a reduced 800Mhz front side bus rather than the 1066Mhz of the original c2d and they have only 1Mb of L2 cache onboard. Needless to say these cpus have locked multipliers.

Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: Kupowanie taniego procesora nie zawsze musi być jednoznaczne z wyborem modelu o niskiej wydajności. Tak jest w przypadku układu Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160, ale pod warunkiem, że nie poprzestaniemy na pracy procesora z ustawieniami nominalnymi. Dla liczących podczas zakupu i składania komputera każdy grosz, cena starszego modelu Pentium może być kusząca – 180 zł.
  • Pros: Łatwy do podkręcania, Stawia bardzo małe wymagania wobec płyty głównej, Niska cena
  • Cons: Niska wydajność przy nominalnych ustawieniach
