    Intel Pentium E2140

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    How times have changed at Intel over the past 2 years. We have seen a review of their quad core processor, and now we're dropping to the bottom of their line up in order to visit the Pentium E2140. How well can this cut down version of a great core fare? Could it even be worth the money? Read on to see what we get.

    The Pentium E2140 runs at 1.6 GHz on an 800 MHz FSB and 1 MB cache. If you're confused, it's okay. Intel's new flagship processors are called Core 2 Duo. The Celeron name has been dumped, and replaced with the Pentium name. Intel has many products up and down the board. At the top of the line we have our quad cores, then our top dual core processors with 4 MB Cache. After this we have our cut down versions with 2 MB cache CPUs.

    After all this is where the E2140 comes into play. It's a 1.6 GHZ, 1 MB cache with only an 800 MHz front side bus. With so much stuff stripped out of CPU, is it even a worthwhile CPU? AMD had the better performance when Intel was still on their Prescott cores and then when they had their 900 series dual cores. Intel then released their Conroe core. This brought Intel back on top.

    What you get

    What comes with a retail CPU is pretty standard. You get some documentation, a little sticker for your case, a stock heatsink and fan, and lastly the actual CPU. There really isn't anything exciting about this. The real excitement comes with how we get to bench this.

    The stock Intel cooler isn't as big as it has been in previous generations, when their CPUs were running really hot.

    This will fit into many of the existing socket 775 platform motherboards. If anything you may just need a quick BIOS update for the motherboard to recognize the CPU properly. The motherboard used in the benchmarking has the new P35 chipset from Intel. This chipset supports from 200 to the new 333 MHz FSB, which is a real perk when overclocking this CPU. It should also support the E2100 series out of the box without any incident.
