The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Pentium® Extreme Edition 955, 3-pack
Article code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product code if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) or (micro) processor is the part of a computer where most calculations take place. In terms of computing power, the processor is the most important element of a computer system, so the performance of a computer is highly dependant on the performance of the processor. For quite some time the performance of a processor has been determined by the number of MHz the clock speed was, but nowadays clock speed doesn\'t have so much to do with the speed of the processor anymore. One of the best ways to compare different kinds of processors, is to look up benchmarks on the internet. Please be careful to buy a processor that is compatible with your motherboard, i.e. fits in the right socket.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the data-sheets can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by Intel: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Processor family *
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
Processor frequency *
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
3.46 GHz
Processor socket *
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
LGA 775 (Socket T)
Processor lithography *
The process which is performed by the processor e.g. CPU (Central Processing Unit).
65 nm
Box *
Plastic or metal shell/container for components.
Processor front side bus
A computer communications interface used to connect the processor to the rest of the computer, except the cache (and possibly other processors).

The current high-end desktop market is quickly turning into a dual core-only proposition, and as far as new releases are concerned, single core models are definitely on the endangered species list. The reasons for this shift are very clear, as dual co...

Bottom line The Pentium Extreme Edition 955 is an impressive release from a number of standpoints. It offers the fastest clock speed for a dual core processor, features upgraded Cedar Mill 2MB cores, and runs on a blazing 1066 MHz processor bus, all of which tran...
On January 5, 2006 Intel presented new dual core processors Pentium D 900, followed by Pentium Extreme Edition 955 a few days later (January 16). These processors are based on the new Presler core, which is the first processor core manufactured by the...
One word comes to mind when you think of Intels 90nm Netburst series: Heat. Many predicted Intels long awaited move to 65nm would see an end to Intels worryingly low performance to watt ratio of the Pentium 4 line. Well see how true this statement...

Bottom line If the first Prescotts felt like sticky keys popping up while sprinting in GTA, then the Presler would be like summoning a tank. It’s an excellent multitasking CPU with great overclocking potential, but it is quite painful on the wallet. Nevertheles...
Intel is undergoing something of a transition right now. As it likes to tell journalists, it’s moving from a single-minded gigahertz obsessed company to a balanced, platform focussed company. What this means is that instead of trying to sell you a singl...

Review: Intel manages to sneak Presler out the door before the end of 2005. We put Intels 65nm Extreme Edition on the bench and uncover a processor that performs well, but is thermally challenged. Lets examine Intels newest dual-core CPU.
