Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 - Overclocking for the poor
An interesting year has passed by. The processor manufacturer Intel, Made a sharp and unprecedented transition from the status of a branching and massive organization operating lazily, to a dynamic and innovative company, which has once again won the sympathy of computer enthusiasts around the world. Indeed, even if for a while it seemed as if the company had shut itself in the ivory tower it had built for itself, locked the doors and shelved the key, recently the truth has slammed back on us - Intel She never took on the role of the 'old giant'. She simply chose to go back to the drawing table for a certain period, and kept a low profile during the process.
The experiment was successful, and today every technology enthusiast willing to invest a reasonable amount of money boasts one of the Core processors, which have gained popularity at the expense of generations of previous processors. But not every new architecture suited, and there are many good computer enthusiasts who have chosen to take a step back and be impressed by the distance.
One of the biggest and most familiar problems in the field of computers, which is constantly renewed, is that it is a dynamic and diverse market that engages the addicts to talk like a mouse is attracted to cheese. No doubt, we have all stood before the difficult situation of purchasing a computer (our parts are more often than others, but the picture is clear).
If so, why is this a complex matter? So the answer to this is simple, and certainly all of you have gone out to experience it; Before the purchase and building specifications set a certain budget. Whether it is a flexible budget or not, along the way we encounter all kinds of additions that we can not give up in any way. The end result is obvious - a price far higher than the initial one that will require your part to take a second mortgage, or at least (if it is not yet appropriate) to do your homework very carefully until the next decade.
As mentioned above, it is not appropriate for everyone to repeat the same scenario every time a new processor architecture is published, or a new Cheepist decides to disgrace your aging computer. With this in mind, the principle of overclocking was born, for who is not interested in achieving free performance, or by giving energy to a computer that is no longer carrying? In theory things always look good, but in practice the situation is far from that. The overclocking phenomenon has long since lost its primacy, and today virtually every hardware manufacturer is concerned with developing improved hardware designed for speed and is priced accordingly.
The point in the introduction is short. Intel She had always vehemently opposed the speeding of components. While the veteran manufacturer does not make loud public statements about the change of direction, things are already quite different. Not only does the company give us the tools to do it Overclock, But it also reminds us of the real purpose of this - to save as much cash as possible. In this phenomenon, we first encountered the launch of the Pentium D 805 processor, which compared to the architecture that was prevalent at the time was a springboard Overclock Phenomenal, and at an incredibly low price. Today, nearly a year later, we will look at the sequel to the aging \ 'Wonder Child \' - the E4300 model.
