Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Overclocking Performance

Posted on Wednesday, June 25 2008 @ 08:25:40 CEST by

Today LH is taking the new king of budget processors to see just how far it can be pushed and they are of course talking about the Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 processor. Costing just $135 US this dual-core processor comes clocked at 2.53GHz on a 1066MHz FSB featuring 3MB of L2 cache. The question is with a little overclocking how does the king of budget hang with the high-end competition?
The fact that we were able to reach 3.8GHz without having to use a water-cooling system is impressive. However, while 3.8GHz is a huge achievement for this E7200 processor, we are just as impressed with the 3.6GHz overclock. At this frequency the E7200 almost ran no hotter than it did at 3.0GHz, as we were not required to adjust the voltage in any way. Furthermore, at 3.6GHz it is possible to get away with using cheap DDR2-800 memory. For gamers the best performance gains can also be seen when going from 3.0GHz to 3.6GHz, as pushing the processor further only accounted for very minimal performance gains!
