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
RAM: 2 GB DDR2 667
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 3650
HDD: Terabyte Coyote

An exploration of a trashpicked computer from the recycling center, an old Dell Dimension 8300 Pentium 4 PC. We'll be looking inside at the hardware design of Dell computers back in 2003, and why it's important to erase your hard drive when throwing out an old computer.

The Intel P4 HT 660 is pretty much useless for modern productivity and gaming. Things take forever to install, you can't game at 1080p, it is inefficient and ready for the garbage (or a retro gaming pc) Thank you for watching, do you have a cool processor or GPU you want me to review?

We are building a Pentium 4 Reverse Sleeper. A modern looking computer from the outside, but packed with retro goodness on the inside. We will go over the parts and you can see me put everything together, there some benchmark results and we will play some games to see what this PC can do.

Pentium D 830 + nVIDIA GTX 950. You're in for a gloriously bottlenecked ride. Tonight on GHGtv, We take Lumbridge- A Dell Dimension 9150 and add a GTX 950 to see if the two can make friends and give us some smooth framerates. Some of the results are surprising, some aren't. We test Left 4 Dead Fallout 3 CS:GO DOTA 2 Skyrim Minecraft So get yourself a beverage and relax. - GHGtv ep38 --
