Prices for e2140 and e2160 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Looks like I have ANOTHER value processor to consider!

Yeah, it looks like the e4300 is barely beating out the e2160... and the e2160 is about $15 less. So the price/performance ratio is about the same. So it looks like we'll have to see the OC'ing abilities of the 2160 now.

If you have a good 400+ FSB possible MB, it seems that 3.2ghz on these Pentium E2160's might be attainable!! Hmmmmmmmm! I'm beginning to really like this new Pentium 65nm technology!

The e2160 can do 3.4+ on air, but the 1mb L2 cache kinda kills them.

It seems that only in gaming enviroments does the extra cache really make a difference. If I build a system for a client that does video editing and encoding and such, this would be the perfect budget CPU!

Actually, I'll correct myself.

The table above shows the advantage of the overclocked Pentium E2160 very clearly. It loses to Core 2 Extreme X6800 with 4MB L2 cache only in a few applications. It means that you can squeeze the performance of Intel’s top dual-core processor from a sub-$100 CPU, no matter how unbelievable it sounds.
That's in applications as well as games.

e2160 is going to be the new D 805.

And without WC being necessary. I have a new favorite BUDGET CPU!
