Lowest Prices


I am going to put the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 through a series of benchmarks and video tests to see how well it performs at stock and overclocked speeds. It will be matched against Intel's E6750 Core 2 Duo chip and I will also compare it to AMD's Phenom 9600 Black Box and Intel's Q6600 Quad Core to see how it stacks up to those popular chips. The E8500 will be tested at manufacturer's specifications for the stock baseline tests and then overclocked to get the highest attainable and stable speed. All other hardware will remain at setup defaults to eliminate any variables that might throw off the scores with the exception of the memory to aid in the overclocking of the E8500.


Testing Setup:


Comparison System:



Overclocked settings:

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
  • Sytem Memory: OCZ PE 910MHz 5-6-6-17
