Intel's Pentium Extreme Edition 955 Review

Posted on Tuesday, December 27 2005 @ 19:31:41 CET by LSDsmurf

Intel's new Extreme Edition processor sports two physical cores and Hyper Threading for another two virtual cores. Is the the ultimate processor for the hardcore gamer, or is it more suited to power users? We go in-depth to find out

"The crux is that Intel would have been better pushing a higher-clocked dual core Pentium Extreme Edition without HyperThreading Technology at gamers. They're more likely to appreciate the extra core speed over the additional threads that really aren't required by anyone who's serious about gaming.

Intel would be better marketing this CPU towards the power user who, like me, hates waiting for one thing to finish before something else can be started. I've turned into a multi-tasking machine, and I'll often sit down and find myself doing more things than my current Athlon 64 X2 is capable of. The 955 is absolutely perfect for this."
