Front view of Intel Pentium D 945

Reasons to consider the
Intel Pentium D 945

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 2 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More advanced architecture x86-64 vs x86 A 64-bit architecture allows more RAM to be installed and accessed by the processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.22 GHz vs 1.64 GHz More than 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.59 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 3.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Newer Jul, 2006 vs Jul, 2004 Release date over 1 years later
