Summary: This processor rocks. Sure it isn't an I3 or I5, but I work with 15 or so ie windows, 5 to 10 documents open in word, several pdf's 3 or4 excel workbooks, while doing remote tech support, using my contact manager, our app specific software, Outlook and thrunderbird, all running on 2 monitors, using the built in graphics. The scenario I just described is all day, day in and day out, on 4 gigs of ram and win7 pro... all of this while converting docs into pdf.
Summary: I chose this for a recent HTPC build over a Sandy Bridge i5 after reading a few reviews (including these on Amazon) described it as more than capable of handling 1080p video. I'm glad I made that choice. It's effortlessly handled just about every piece of video I've thrown at it so far (except that one clip from Planet Earth with the thousands of birds over a lake...), and it does an equally admirable job on Windows 7, XBMC (Alaska MQ skin) and my GameEx emulators.
Summary: I have two of these currently powering a home file server and an HTPC. The speed of the CPU is perfect for these applications. I am giving 4 stars because of problems with the HTPC. Video out over HDMI was not syncing properly with my TV (only 4:3 aspect ratio resolutions were working, any 16:9 resolution would cause the sync to be dropped). To fix the problem, I bought a $30 Nvidia discrete video card, which has been excellent.
Summary: Billigaste "inträdesbiljetten" till Sandy Bridge för stationära datorer. Prestandan utan överklockning, 2.6 Ghz, är väsentligen bättre än en Wolfdale, Pentium E6800 i 3.33 Ghz. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/pentium-g850-g840-g620_4.html#sect0 Har låg strömförbrukning, mätte just upp ett system till 34W i idle. Dock verkar snabbare modeller ha lika låg effekt vid idle. Dock är Intels drivare för den inbyggda GPUn under all kritik.
