Default E2140 and E2160 released today

Intel released today E2140 and E2160, they will be priced $74 and $84 respectively

Here are some benchmarks
Benchmark - Intel Pentium E2160
pentium e2140 benchmark

From those benchmarks we can say that E2160 clearly beats 3600+ and 3800+, but E2140 is just slightly faster than 3600+

Here are the new CPU's on newegg
Newegg.com - Intel Dual-Core E2140 Allendale 1.6GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail
Newegg.com - Intel Dual-Core E2160 Allendale 1.8GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

But the problem is that those are priced higher than what intel priced them !!!

I'm guessing those will overclock really well, with that high multiplier. Maybe they're priced higher, because they just got them in stock, and it's not in demand yet?

these have been out in the UK for quite awhile now and have shown to be EXCELLENT budget C2D chips. They have all been hitting 3.2-3.4ghz....however for some reason these chips seem to run very hot.

BTW here is a very nice chart showing all the budget chips at identical clock levels and the same FSB speeds:

Maybe they run a little hot, because they need a little extra juice to get to those speeds.

nope even at low vcore they tend to run hot.

here's just 1 example..the same guy has a quad core @ 3.3ghz and it runs cooler than that:

Those are waiting chips I think. Those are the chips you would use on a lower budget build that wanted to use LGA 775 but not a lot of money. For instance if you went C2D right now and want a Quad in July you can save some money.

The X2 3600 is still better for the money though since not only is the chip 20 bucks cheaper, a good overclocking mobo is also cheaper. Plus the X2 3600 runs a lot cooler than those new Allendales.
