Intel Pentium E6700 is an evolutionary upgrade to Pentium E6xxx line of microprocessors. The processor is clocked at 3.2 GHz, or one step above previously fastest socket 775 Pentium E6600 CPU. At this time, June 2010, this is the fastest Pentium-branded CPU, and it will stay the fastest for a few months until Intel launches the next member of dual-core Pentium family, Pentium E6800. Like all other E6xxx CPUs, the E6700 features 1066 MHz Front Side Bus frequency, shared 2 MB level 2 cache, Virtualization technology and streaming SIMD extensions up to SSE3 and Supplemental SSE3. First Pentium parts with S-spec number SLGUF had core stepping R0, and may work in older socket 775 boards without BIOS upgrade.
Priced less than $100 at introduction, the Pentium E6700 can be considered a budget processor. Performance-wise it is positioned against currently top model in dual-core AMD Athlon II family - Athlon II X2 260.
