Intel® Core™2 Duo Processors E8400/E7400/E6400/E4300: Brief
Intel® Core™2 Duo processors are members of Intel’s growing product line of multi-core processors based on Intel® Core™ microarchitecture. This innovative process technology makes it possible to integrate two complete execution cores in one physical package, providing advancements in simultaneous computing for multi-threaded applications and multi-tasking environments.
Processors meet the needs of a wide range of performance-intensive, low-power embedded applications in smaller form factors such as retail and transaction terminals—i.e., point-of-service terminals and ATMs—, gaming platforms, industrial control and automation, digital security surveillance and medical imaging. While incorporating advanced processor technology, they remain software-compatible with previous IA-32 processors.
Intel’s hafnium-based 45nm Hi-k silicon process technology (E8400, E7400) enables excellent processor performance by doubling transistor density and increasing cache size by up to 50 percent. The result is improved speed and efficiency relative to previous-generation dual-core Intel® processors.
