Agreed that the Pentium EE would be teh suck, but the 955 has two physical cores (hence the 2x L2 cache).

The 955 has 2 physical cores with HT for a total of 4 "cores"
(2 physical, 2 virtual)

It performs like junk though. Loses to an Athlon 4800+ pretty badly.

In the modern age where multitasking is normal and focused applications (games) are designed to run on multi-core PCs, having 2 cores beats the crap out of HT anyday.

As for overclocking potential, I'd bet a 4Ghz P4/HT wouldn't compare to a 3Ghz C2D. And the E2200 can reach 3Ghz easily. heck, you can run it at 2,66Ghz speeds using the STOCK voltage and STOCK COOLER.
Can somebody explain how to do that because I have a new box with an E2200 and not much PSU or cooling. If I could do a moderate OC I would be pretty happy about it!

Fail. Basically the newer architecture of the E2200 is more efficient. That's all. Intel finally realized they need to make efficient architectures because believe it or not speed isn't everything. That's why they got wrecked by AMD in the single core department.
