Pentium E2100-series Benchmarks Revealed

| Posted: Apr 5, 2007 10:37 pm

Not too long now before Intel unleash their budget-oriented Pentium E2100 series of processors, these chips derived from the Conroe core but with half the cache (making a total of 1MB L2).

 

The Dailytech have made note of a chinese website which have been able to run some early benchmarks of these processors and give us an idea of how they fair in comparison to Intel's Core 2 Duo E4000 series chips.

 


Early benchmarks of Intel's upcoming Pentium E2100-series reveal the value processor doesn't fall too far behind the Core 2 Duo E4000-series, when comparing equal clock speeds. Intel is set to introduce its Pentium E2100-series processors in June with sub-$100 pricing. The new processor is based on Intel's Conroe core but halves the L2 cache of similar Core 2 Duo E4000-series, making for a total of 1MB of L2 cache.

 

Productivity benchmarks such as Business Winstone 2004 and Multimedia Content Creation Winstone 2004 show an approximate 1-point difference between the Pentium E2160 and Core 2 Duo E4300, favoring the E4300 - both processors have 1.8 GHz clock speeds. Video encoding in TMPGEnc 3.0 reveals a 1 second performance difference between the two processors, and again favoring the E4300.
