Stock the E5200 is better

Overclocked the E5200 is better

Even though the E5200 carries the lower-end "Pentium" designation, it is in fact better than the Core 2 Duo E6300.

E5200: Higher clock speed is a given and, most importantly, newer fabrication process (45nm vs the E6300's 65nm, which also makes it faster per clock).

With the first series of Core 2 (65nm Conroe), Intel separated the low end from the high-end with series number, while maintaining the Core 2 designation (E4x00, E2x00 vs the higher end E6x00 models, and inside the Higher end E6000 there was also some variation from the absolute high end models: E6600/E6700/E6800 being the top dogs, and the E6400/E6300 being the mid range, inside the high-end).

With the introduction of 45nm Core 2 chips, Intel still continued differentiating chips with series number, but also changed the designation from Core 2 to Pentium Dual Core.


Slight correction: The 65nm Conroe E2000 series, was called Pentium Dual core as well. But Intel widened the Pentium range when Core 2 45nm hit the market.

But in the end, they're same chips, just with lower cache and clock speeds.

It's all a bit confusing, but still.
