Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Review

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750

Looking to pick up a new processor or upgrade an older one? The Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 is a great mid-range processor which should keep you happy for quite some time. Now, this processor isn't new, it was released in mid-late 2007. However, it has since come down in price which has greatly increased its price to performance ratio. Let's take a look in more detail at this little gem.

Here are the specs for this processor:Intel Core 2 Duo E6750

  • 2.66GHz Dual Core processor
  • 1333MHz FSB (Front Side Bus)
  • .65 Micron manufacture
  • 4MB L2 cache shared
  • LGA775 socket compatible
  • 291 million transistors onboard

The Core 2 Duo E6750 has the Conroe core and will require a motherboard capable of supporting 1333MHz FSB. These include the P3X and G3X series of Intel chipsets or the Nvidia nForce 680 and up line.

What makes the Core 2 style of processors stand out is their ability to multi-task using multiple cores. You can be downloading music, playing a game, and running a virus scan in the background all at the same time. The other plus of the Core 2 Duo line is its power saving features. Intel has built in technology that will control power transfer to only those areas that need it. This power control is achieved through what Intel calls Thermal Monitor 2.

Thermal Monitor 2 will limit the processor temperatures by reducing power within the processor. If a high temperature is detected the Thermal Control Circuit tells the processor to adjust its operating frequency and voltage. Once temperatures are back in normal range, the frequency and voltage are restored.

In benchmarking tests the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 compares closely with its predecessor the E6700 which runs with a FSB of 1066MHz. So if you are already running a Core 2 Duo processor, then upgrading to the E6750 is probably a waste of money. However, if you are still on an older Pentium 4 or a Celeron and are looking to upgrade, this CPU offers a great price to performance ratio and is priced extremely low for the performance that you get.


  • Fast multi-core CPU
  • Very stable
  • Great low price
  • Widespread availability


  • The newer chipsets that support the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 consume more power
  • Needs a newer motherboard that supports 1333MHz FSB
