    Re: Advice on new CPU

    From what I've been lead to from this is that if you look at Intels web site the E6300 @ 1.86 is now listed as the E6320

    Yeah, got to be careful and research accurately because over time they rename and enhance existing CPU's, I found it interesting in it's complication lol to figure out what to think and do about it properly

    Intel originally release an E6300 1.86ghz with 2mB of l2 cache, later they released the E6320. The E6320 was essencially the same as the E6300, but was equipped with 4mB of l2 cache.

    The E6320 came about because, by that time, Intel had the Allendale core which was a core designed with a 2mB cache, instead of the E6300 which had 2mB of l2 cache disabled to make for a 2mB l2 cache processor. Because the Allendale core was designed with 2mB of l2 cache, it's die was much smaller then the core2 duo and therefore Intel could release an entry level procesor, this core gave Intel, the possibility of releasing cheaper processors like the E4xxx and E2xxx processor lines.
