|Go beyond everyday computing with the Intel® Pentium® dual-core desktop processor. An increasing number of software applications are now designed for dual-core processors enabling the user to be more creative and productive in the home or the office. The need for security and virus protection often means running more than one application at a time and the Pentium dual-core processor has the power to run them simultaneously.|
Based on a new energy-efficient microarchitecture, the Pentium dual-core desktop processor delivers superior energy-efficient dual-core performance.
Intel® Intelligent Power Capability, a feature of the Pentium dual-core processor, optimizes energy usage in the processor cores by turning computing functions on only when needed. This improves performance as well as the processor’s energy efficiency by operating at lower frequencies that require less power to run. These more energy-efficient processors support smaller and quieter desktop PCs.
Pentium dual-core processors are equipped with a Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) that enables efficient processor and platform thermal control. Thermal sensors located within the processor measure the maximum temperature on the die at any given time. The acoustic benefit of temperature monitoring is that system fans spin only as fast as needed to cool the system, and slower fans generate less noise.
When combined with an Intel® Express Chipset based board, you enjoy exceptional audio quality and a smooth visual experience with integrated Intel® High Definition Audio and Intel® Graphics Media Acceleration (GMA.) The flexible platform options bring an array of new capabilities like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) or the colorful world of digital photography.
You can expand your computing options today with a desktop system based on the Intel Pentium dual core processor.
