How does it rate compared to other intel processors??

With in the D range?

It is probably the best value for money in the mid to high range. It performs nearly the same as the 950 but should be around £40 to £50 cheaper. The next one up, 960, would be double the price of the 945 and certainly would not give the extra performance that makes it twice the price.

So with in the range, I would put it down as the best value for money chip.

its a very good dual core processor but the best at the moment is the Core 2 Duo and is Intels fastest performing with lower speeds (Ghz). If you are considering getting a computer or processor I would go for the core 2 duo.

Agree with Jimmy14

If you can go core 2 duo, then look at the



The E6600 amy be a little to pricey @ £200+
