The Core 2 Duo E8400 is certainly fast, even compared with the Core 2 Quad Q6600. Only in heavily multithreaded apps do the Q6600s four cores provide a speed advantage. In other tests the E8400 dominates. However, there are two things to consider...

We already know that the E8000 series Wolfdale CPUs offer great performance at a very good price. The problem is theyre not easily available. We found that the Xeon E3110 is a viable alternative to the E8400, as its basically the exact same...

If you have been waiting for the new 45nm CPUs, then you made the right choice. This CPU is the best dual-core you can get for your money right now. While the E8500 is considerably more expensive, it doesnt offer any advantage besides a speed...

In the intro, I mentioned that Intels Core 2 Duo launch in mid-2006 succeeded in getting people excited about processors again, and its safe to say that the 45nm launch will accomplish something similar. One thing that has changed since that launch...

Intel has a winner here with this cheap Wolfdale processor. I paid $201 with tax in Atlanta, Georgia for this chip and considering how well it performed at stock and overclocked settings I see no reason to suggest purchasing a 65nm processor....

The new E8400 is a very impressive processor and the fact that it can be purchased for the same price as an E6750 is remarkable. Although the E8400 is clocked at 3.0GHz like the E6850, it will actually be replacing the E6750 at $183 US. The E6850 will...

Hvis jeg ikke har sagt det før så siger jeg det nu - 45nm teknikken sparker mås. Med E8400 får du en cpu der render køligere end sine forgængere, og med et overclocking potentiale der skal tages seriøst. Prisen er endnu et plus. For bare ½år siden...
