Bytesector posted a review on the Intel Pentium D 820 processor
In recent months, we have seen Intel and AMD battle it out to be the first one to the market with a dual-core, single-die processor. With both companies introducing their first dual-core processors for the consumer market, we are seeing some changes in the personal computing concept with a workload going from simple single tasks and single threaded processes to very intense multi-threaded tasks. Intel came out punching on the dual-core path with their pride and joy, the Pentium 840 Extreme Edition processor that not only had dual-cores, but also supported Intel’s HyperThreading Technology. The Pentium 820 is, in almost every respect, identical to the Pentium 840 with one exception, its lack of HyperThreading Technology. So is the 820 any good? Let’s find out.
