Using the Pentium D in 2017 - Gaming and Video Editing on Intel's First Dual-Core CPU

author TerabyteCoyote   1 years ago

The Intel Pentium D, released in 2005, was the world's FIRST dual-core desktop processor. Technically based on two Pentium 4 processors on one die, it was a slow, power hungry, and hot CPU, but can you game, edit video, and use the Pentium D in 2017? Is it obsolete?

We tried to play games on the Pentium D 820, steam video, and browse the web on this old CPU. Watch the video for the results.

Games tested on the Pentium D: Rocket League (2015), Portal 2 (2011), and Far Cry 2 (2008)

Testbench Specs:
CPU: Intel Pentium D 820 2.8 GHz w/ BTX CPU heatsink
