Intel Pentium 4 HT 520J

Cores1More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed2.8GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenamePrescottThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date21 Jun 2004 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP84WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L2 Cache1024KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
Lithography90nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketLGA 775/ Socket TThe motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Pentium 4 HT 520J compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Pentium 4 HT 520J has poor performance. Its 1 core clocked at 2.8 GHz provides swift processing speeds but with only a single core, it will never match up to modern competitors.

The CPU is now over 13 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from Intel.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 90 nanometers, the Pentium 4 HT 520J is not efficient at all by modern standards, and with a Thermal Design Power of 84W the amount of power necessary to run it does not make up for the inefficiency of its physical structure.
