Intel Core2 Duo E7200 

Released April, 2008
  • 2.53 GHz
  • Dual core
4.8 Out of 10

With nothing bad to say about the Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 and a rumored price at launch of $133, this is a value if we've seen one.

The Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 should be a great overclocker as it has a 9.5 multiplier (266MHz FSB x 9.5 multiplier = 2,527MHz).

Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Core2 Duo E7200

3.6GHz is still very nice for a processor that had a stock frequency of 2.53.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

The Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 processor isn't even out yet, but it is by far one of the most talked about processors in 2008 and with a rumored price of $133 it is no wonder as to why.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 and E6750 were just a tenth of a Frame Per Second (FPS) apart!
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
Just for fun we changed the bus speed from 266MHz to 333MHz and the system was stable and solid.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)

Socket

The overclocking helped the Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 become more than a minute quicker and was nearly 34% faster than stock settings.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
Legit Bottom Line: The Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 processor brings low-cost 45nm dual-core processors to consumers that have all the overclocking abilities of the higher-end processors.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
The highest overclock reached was at 1.55V and it was at just 406MHz.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)

Multicore

It obviously doesn't boast "extreme" performance, but Intel's budget Dual-Cores are still worth the while.
by WroLeader (Jan, 2012)
This benchmark obviously didn't make use of the extra cache and as a result the processors ran at nearly the same performance levels when the Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 was overclocked.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
The Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 has a 3MB chunk of L2 cache that should perform better than the 2MB L2 cache found on the E4700.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)

Performance

When it came to performance, the Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 at default clock speeds was not hands down faster than the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750, but we'd pick the E7200 over it any day since it can be overclocked up to a 1333MHz FSB with just a single BIOS setting adjustment.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
Factor in overclocking beyond that and you have a price versus performance winner as overclocks over 50 percent are hard to ignore.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
The Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 and E7200 performed exactly the same and was able to complete the 64-bit benchmark in just 25 seconds.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)

Overclocking

When it comes to benchmarks, the overclocked Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 was running nearly identical to the Intel Core 2 Duo E8500.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
Let's start off by overclocking without adjusting any voltages to see what the E7200 dual-core processor can do out of the box.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2008)
We will try to reach these higher clock frequencies in our overclocking section.
