List of Intel Processors
Right now, most of the newer Intel systems are running on their Core 2 line of processors and can primarily be differentiated by having either dual or quad cores. In addition, there is also the "Extreme" line of quad core processors, with unlocked clock multipliers, for overclocking enthusiasts.
The table below shows the main categories of Intel's Core 2 family of processors. Under each category are many other processors which run at different frequencies and have their own unique specifications. For convenience's sake and the purpose of our demonstration, we have decided to show only the top of the line processors from each category.
