Intel C2D E8500 3.16GHz Retail Product Details
Core 2 Duo E8500 Processor BX80570E8500
Built on the innovative Intel® Core™ microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo desktop processor delivers revolutionary dual-core performance and breakthrough processor energy efficiency. With Intel® Wide Dynamic Execution, Intel® Smart Memory Access, Intel® Advanced Smart Cache, and Intel® Digital Media Boost, this new processor is designed to do more in less time. Additional features, which support enhanced security, virtualization, and 64-bit computing, make the Intel Core 2 Duo the most impressive processor developed for an increasingly multimedia-centered, high-definition world.
Design changes in the Intel Core 2 Duo processors that improve performance also increase processor energy efficiency by operating at lower frequencies that require less power to run. Intel® Intelligent Power Capability, a feature that optimizes energy usage of the processor cores, turns on computing functions only when needed. These more energy efficient processors support smaller, more capable, and quieter desktop PCs to conserve critical power resources.
2007 Best of Innovations Honoree
The world's best microprocessor, Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessor. Innovations Design and Engineering Awards honor outstanding consumer electronics design and engineering.
By offering a single brand name for our mainstream desktop and laptop dual-core processors, Intel's branding strategy makes it simple for consumers and businesses to choose a powerful and energy efficient processor – and makes it easier for developers to "write once, run everywhere."
"...and not only was the Intel system running at 2.66GHz - a slower clock rate then the top Pentium 4 - it was outpacing an overclocked Athlon 64 FX-60. Wrap your brain around that idea for a bit" - Intel Reveals Conroe Architecture: Lloyd Case, Extremetech March 8,2006
Intel® Core™2 Processor Family
When launched later this year, the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor will provide enhanced performance and energy-efficiency in mobile applications while bringing for the first time the benefits of energy-efficient performance to mainstream desktop computing. It will be Intel's highest performing desktop processor ever and the new first choice of gamers and multimedia professionals worldwide.
As with the Intel® Pentium® processor brand, use of the number "2" signals the arrival of the next generation of technology to the Intel® Core™ processor line. In order to be consistent with our current Intel Core processor naming, we are continuing to use "Duo" to creatively and effectively indicate Intel® dual-core technology.
