The Central Processing Unit (CPU) or (micro) processor is the part of a computer where most calculations take place. In terms of computing power, the processor is the most important element of a computer system, so the performance of a computer is highly dependant on the performance of the processor. For quite some time the performance of a processor has been determined by the number of MHz the clock speed was, but nowadays clock speed doesn\'t have so much to do with the speed of the processor anymore. One of the best ways to compare different kinds of processors, is to look up benchmarks on the internet. Please be careful to buy a processor that is compatible with your motherboard, i.e. fits in the right socket.

The official marketing text of Intel Core 661 processor 3.33 GHz Box 4 MB L3 as supplied by the manufacturer

Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology)
Today's Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.

Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)
Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.

Intel® 64 Architecture
Intel® 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory.

Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology is an advanced means of enabling very high performance while also meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load.

Execute Disable Bit
Execute Disable Bit is a hardware-based security feature that can reduce exposure to viruses and malicious-code attacks and prevent harmful software from executing and propagating on the server or network. Help protect your customers' business assets and reduce the need for costly virus-related repairs by building systems with built-in Intel Execute Disable Bit.

Processor
Processor family *
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel® Core™ i5
Processor frequency *
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
3.33 GHz
Processor cores *
The number of central processing units ('cores') in a processor. Some processors have 1 core, others have 2 (e.g. Intel Core Duo) or more (e.g. the Intel Xeon E7-2850 has 10 cores).
2
Processor socket *
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
LGA 1156 (Socket H)
Component for *
What this product is used as a part of (component for).

System bus rate *
A bus is a communication system that transfers data between components inside a computer, or between computers. The system bus rate is the speed at which data is transferred in this communication system.
2.5 GT/s
Processor operating modes *
Operating modes for the processors that place restrictions on the type and scope of operations for certain processes run by the CPU. This design allows the operating system to run with more privileges than application software.

The Intel Core i5 661 is the first CPU we've seen of a new series based on the new Intel Clarkdale design and for want of a better description it lies somewhere towards the top end of the bottom half of Intel's current CPU line-up. In other words, it's ki...

Intel generally releases a new architecture for motherboard chipsets every couple of years. The last motherboard chipset they launched was the P55 Express chipset to support the new Core i5 and i7 CPUs on a new Socket 1156 interface. Today they are lau...
Bottom line Realizing that the majority of computer users use their computer for other tasks than playing Dirt 2 or Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Intel's new Clarkdale CPU accomplishes two tasks. Full support of Blu-ray playback and encoding by the on-CPU integra...

Meanwhile there will be an i5 670 model as well that comes with the highest CPU core clock frequency of 3.46GHz, while the TDP stays at 73W. All very interesting and sure, even a little confusing. Well, you are at guru3d.com, so we'll try to do our b...
Bottom line With the release of the Core i5 Clarkdale based processors (650/660/661/670) Intel is making a bit of an unusual move. See, we all know that the 'system on a chip' concept is something which in the future we will see more and more. But after testi...

Today Intel is officially unveiling its worst-kept secret in a long time – a pair of new CPU families based on a new version of Nehalem microarchitecture: Clarkdale (not to be confused with Clarksfield, which is the mobile variant of Core i7) and Arr...
Bottom line s I think the best way to look at Clarkdale, is to look at it as a CPU and CPU/GPU separately. Strictly as a CPU, it has its pros and cons. On one hand, it is clocked quite high (the i5 670 can reach up to 3.73 GHz with Turbo fully engaged – faster...

Today marks Intel launching its first 32nm processor into the market. Considering that only two years ago we saw the 45nm process come to market in the form of a QX9650, there is no doubt that Intel is staying on target with its Tick Tock cadence. As p...
Bottom line The new Clarkdale core processors are a new engineering marvel from Intel. The new Core i5 and Core i3 processor will both serve its intended market very well. These however are not enthusiast products, although some of us will possibly find the lowest...

If you look back at the battle between AMD and Intel you will see something that is both interesting and funny at the same time. This is a comical little irony that has been repeated over and over for more than a few years. What is the ironic happeni...
Bottom line So what do we think of the Clarkdale? Our experience with the Core i5 661 is very positive indeed. We saw great performance given the fact that the Core i5 661 is only a dual core CPU with Hyper-Threading to allow for four threads per execution cycle...

Bottom line The new Core i5 661 may just be a dual-core processor, but it's still incredibly fast at 3.33GHz, even when compared to high-performance quad-core parts. Accompanied with the rest of the Core i5 and Core i3 line-up, we finally have Intel moving comple...
