Intel Pentium 4 2.66GHz Processor Review - Intel Pentium 4 2.66GHz Processor Review
Tue Nov 12, 2002 | 1:59A| PermaLink
As you can see from the benchmarks, the P4 2.66 GHz processor is an excellent performer and when you consider the price it's also a really good value. With a retail price of $650 CDN ($300 US), the P4 2.66 is only a tad slower than the P4 2.8 in most benchmarks, but the difference is a lot larger at the check-out counter. Even with the price drop which will be happening with the release of the Hyper-threading enabled 3.06GHz Pentium 4, the 2.66GHz model still offers a very good value to the consumer.

If you demand top of the line performance, but don't want to pay top of the line prices, the P4 2.66 fills that role very well. I doubt very many people would even notice the difference if you were to switch out a 2.8GHz for a 2.66GHz chip. If the stock speed of the processor still isn't enough for you, then there is always overclocking. The unit we tested for this review reached 3.26 GHz with a voltage of 1.65V and typical air cooling!
