I pulled this out of an old system with an Intel branded DP55WB... I must say, for its age, this can sit around 3.5 Ghz on all 4 cores with relative ease. Absolutely not worth purchasing today, but if you got it... hey! [Aug '19 xDEFCONx]


This hyperthreaded dual core Clarkdale processor was great for most users as this CPU comes very cheap and offered strong performance for that price. Still worth it today albeit for light gaming and modern basic tasks. [Dec '19 ColdSpy]
