  • The Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, with its 3.16GHz clock speed, 1333MHz FSB speed and 6MB of L2 cache, remains a force to be reckoned with. In real-world office applications the E8500 was generally a little faster than the Phenom II X4 955 and a little slow...

  • Abstract:  The last time we looked at dual core processors, it was for our Dual Core War in December 2007. Back then, the top processors were Intels then-$190 E6750 versus AMDs then-$180 X2 6400+. Things have changed since then, at least on the Intel side. S...

  • Thats the bitter truth as it is. The top processor from AMD (it does not even matter which of the two, because they have the same total score) is outscored by the top processor from Intel by 45%. There is actually nothing to comment on. We could have...

  • Pricey compared to the Q9300.
  • Intels Wolfdale CPU is highly overclockable, but the performance advantage over the Q9300 is surprisingly small....

  • Abstract:  About a month and a half ago, Intel released its newest high-end dual core processor, the E8500 Wolfdale. Madshrimps already reviewed and overclocked the E8500, but that was only an engineering sample. The new retail chips might be better when it comes...

  • Abstract:  When I think of a cadence, I’m reminded of the drum line in a marching band, dutifully keeping time with a catchy beat that gets everyone’s head bobbing and keeps their feet moving.Intel’s silicon process technology is the drum lin...

  • Fastest Dual Core Processor, Extremely Good Overclocking, A Gaming Powerhouse, Low Power
  • Limited Availability, Not a Quad Core
  • There is a lot of like about the Core 2 Duo E8500; it has a combination of high performance and low power consumption that is virtually impossible to beat, and an overclocking ceiling that Shaq cant touch. We were able to hit well over 4 GHz on air c...

  • The E8500 is a worthy successor to the Core 2 Duo CPUs released earlier by Intel, with faster clock speeds, higher amount of L2 cache and all of the technologies that are supported by current Intel CPUs including SSE 4, XD, Virtualization Technology an...

  • Intel has a winner on its hands with the Core 2 Duo E8500. Unfortunately the E8500 also signals the end of easy, crazy-high overclocking for Intel chips due to increased standard FSB speeds. Because even if you end up with a really great board that ru...
