Budget Pentium D 805 benchmarked, overclocked
HKEPC Hardware has the first benchmarks
(in Chinese, bring a translator
) of Intel's latest budget dual-core processor, the Pentium D 805. As we've previously reported
, the 805 runs at 2.67GHz on a 533MHz front-side bus and has 1MB of L2 cache per core. Performance is predictably lower than the Pentium D 820, which has a faster system bus and higher clock speed. However, HKEPC was able to crank its 805 up to a whopping 3.7GHz, suggesting that there's plenty of headroom for overclockers.
