Default Intel Pentium E2160 and Pentium E2140

Intel Company started shipping new dual-core processors on Core micro-architecture. One of their major advantages is very low price of only $90. But are these intriguing newcomers as attractive as their counterparts from Core 2 Duo family? We are going to answer this question with our extensive performance and overclocking tests!

It would have been nice if he'd also compared thermal output between the AMD's & Intel's. I'm considering both for HTPC use.
