Intel Pentium E5200 Processor

Performance tests.

The review title is wilfully laconic, and the review itself is up to the spirit. It was fascinating to evaluate performance of the first 45nm processor from the Pentium dual-core series. However, we already benchmarked Wolfdale core versus older Conroe core in Dual-Core Versus Quad-Core and were not surprised by the frequency and cache size of Pentium E5200, so nothing exceptional was expected. In fact, we were absolutely right, except for one thing.

The choice of opponents is also apparent: we've tested all previous processors from the Pentium dual-core line, the entire Core 2 Duo E4xxx series as the next family after Pentium dual-core, and the slowest representative of Core 2 Duo E7xxx series that will replace E4xxx. Why the slowest? Because one processor was enough to see the whole picture.

Perhaps, some may think that we've selected too many contenders, that we could have left only top models from each series. However, we've decided that a review with test results of all such processors would be very convenient for readers.
