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.

Intel® Pentium® Processor Extreme Edition Features:

Hyper-Threading Technology
Enables you to run multiple demanding applications at the same time.

Execute Disable Bit
Can improve protection against malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when properly enabled with a supporting operating system.

Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology
Provides flexibility for future applications that support both 32-bit and 64-bit computing.

Dual-Core
Two physical cores in one processor support better system responsiveness and multi-tasking capability than a comparable single core processor.

Intel® Virtualization Technology
Intel® Virtualization Technology enables one hardware platform to function as multiple "virtual" platforms. For businesses, it offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, it allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members looking to use the same platform simultaneously.

Processor
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 cores *
The number of central processing units ('cores') in a processor. Some processors have 1 core, others have 2 (e.g. Intel Core Duo) or more (e.g. the Intel Xeon E7-2850 has 10 cores).
2
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)
Component for *
