The last of the series were the dual-core Pentium 4 models, and the Pentium was superseded by the Core in 2006 (see Intel Core).
The first Pentium chip was introduced in 1993 as the successor to the 486; thus the Pentium began as the fifth generation of the Intel x86 architecture (see x86).
The Pentium D and Pentium Processor Extreme Edition were the first dual-core Pentium chips from Intel and the last of the Pentium line.

 Pentium D - MediaCoderWiki
The Pentium D branded CPUs were to increase CPU throughput (in order for Moore's Law to be held true) by incorporating more transistors in more cores without increasing the power consumption, but their TDP of 95-130 W paved the way for the less power consuming successor with the Core architecture.
Pentium Extreme Edition was introduced during the 2nd Quarter 2005 Intel Developers Forum, not to be confused with the "Pentium 4 Extreme Edition" (an earlier, single-core processor occupying the same niche).
The Pentium D brand was succeeded on July 27, 2006 by the Core 2 branded line of microprocessors with the Core architecture released as dual- and quad-core CPUs branded Duo, Quad, and Extreme.

 Intel Pentium E2140 Dual Core Processor - HotHardware
From that point forward, many had figured the Pentium name would be essentially dead, simply living out its final days as inventory in warehouses until the Core 2 made it obsolete.
While the Pentium had always targeted the performance crowd, it appeared that Intel would be taking the name in a new direction, pushing it to the value sector where their Celeron brand typically resided.
The Pentium E2140 drops the Conroe clock speed down to 1.6 GHz at its lowest, and has 1 MB of shared L2 cache.

 bit-tech.net | Intel Pentium 4 670 & Pentium D 820 - Pentium D 820
Back then, we promised you that we'd be having a look at Intel's Pentium D when we had the chance, and today we're going to be looking at Intel's Pentium D 820.
The Pentium D 820 is the slowest of Intel's dual core processors, but that should not put you off immediately as it comes with a very healthy price tag.
One thing to note with the Pentium D is that only the Extreme Edition supports Intel's HyperThreading technology, the slower cores don't support it and we're likely to see Intel move away from HyperThreading when they bring out their next generation CPU architecture, which was uncovered earlier this week.

 Intel To Pare Pentium D Dual-Core Lineup -- News -- InformationWeek
Production of the Pentium D models 830, 840, 930, and 940 will be discontinued by Dec. 15 of this year, the chip giant said in two "Product Change Notification" documents issued to its resellers.
The winnowing of the four older Pentium D models comes in the wake of the recent launch of Intel's new desktop Core 2 Duo processors, also known as "Conroe." The new chips use Intel's new Core microarchitecture, widely seen as its cleanest dual-core design to date.
When the 3.0-GHz Pentium D 830 and 3.2-GHz Pentium D 840 are discontinued, the 8XX line will still have its two lower-end, bargain options: the 2.66-GHz 805, which widely retails for about $110, and the 2.8-GHz 820, which sells for $120.

 Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 and Pentium D Dual Core review - IT Reviews
Unfortunately Intel hit a series of major problems when it moved its Pentium 4 from the 0.13-micron Northwood core to the 0.09-micron (90nm) Prescott, which meant that it was unable to increase the core speed of the processor to the 4GHz and beyond that it had been aiming for.
On the face of it this is a step backwards as Pentium D will have two true cores, compared to two virtual cores in the Pentium 4 5xx and 6xx series.
In addition the clock speed is significantly lower than Pentium 4 which you can readily buy at 3.6GHz, and in straight benchmark tests Pentium Extreme Edition and Pentium D return results that are proportional to their raw clock speeds, but when you try multi-tasking you'll find that there's more to the story.

 Pentium Gets Resurrected, Dual-Core Style - Makes a comeback for the budget users - Softpedia
The latest Intel developments show that the Pentium brand isn't that dead after all, as the company is preparing to resurrect the brand with a new budget dual-core CPU lineup.
According to current road-maps, the remaining Pentium D processors will soon be replaced by CPUs based on the Core micro-architecture.
The direct descendants of the Pentium D family will not be represented by the new low-cost Core 2 Duo CPUs, but by a special dual-core processor series that will be selling under the same Pentium brand name.

 Pentium D debuts, and Pentium 4 makes another encore
As you'll probably (struggle to) recall, the "Pentium D" moniker goes with the lower clockspeed, lower priced, non-hyperthreaded, "Smithfield" dual-core line, which is itself composed of two "Prescott" cores joined at the hip.
For instance, the Pentium Extreme Edition 840 is dual-core and does not have a D, but is "extreme" because it has an extremely high clockspeed and an extremely high price.The 8xx in a product name also stands for dual-core, but that number does not tell you whether or not something is extreme or non-extreme.
In short, the Pentium D 820 is far and away the best dual-core bang for the buck out there right now.

 Pentium D 820 and i945G/P Chipset Showcase - HotHardware
Running at 2.8GHz, the Pentium D 820 is equipped with dual-processor cores but doesn't support Hyper-Threading, while the D945GTPLR brings new features along with an updated integrated graphics controller.
The main difference between the Pentium EE 840 and the Pentium D is that the Pentium D doesn't support Hyper-Threading technology.
So the Pentium EE 840 holds the top spot as the current fastest dual-core CPU Intel has to offer, while the Pentium D series brings improved multithreaded performance over comparable single-core Pentium 4 processors with Hyper-Threading technology.

 Intel Pentium D 940 3.2GHz Dual Core Processor Review - PCSTATS.com
Then came the first generation of true dual physical core Intel Pentium D processors; a band aid fix by most accounts but none the less a good improvement to the P4.
Pentium D processors are split into two groups, the 800-series which are built on the 90nm process and incorporate 230 million transistors, and the more advanced 900-series which are built on 65nm and have a total of 376 million transistors.
The Pentium D 940 represents the state of the art in Intel processors, not just because of its dual core nature, but because of the other features it incorporates as well.

 Intel Pentium D - CPU - Review - www.pcauthority.com.au
The Pentium D is something of a stepping stone in the world of CPUs: both a throwback to the days of gigahertz races and high TDPs, as well as the trailblazer that brought a new era of dual-core computing to the desktop PC.
The Pentium D family is stuck between a rock and a hard place, due in part to the introduction of the Core 2 Duo and also declining availability.
You’ll need to pay $260 for the privilege of virtualisation on a Pentium D and the 940 was the only compatible model we could find that was still available.

 Legit Reviews - The Intel Pentium D 820..... Dual Core for the masses - Introduction
With the release of Intel's Pentium D 840, those who could afford the best of the best finally saw the benefits that dual core processors bring to the table.
With the release of the Pentium D 840, users realized a major drawback to dual core processors, the lack of support with the 915 and 925 chipsets, so those of us who shelled out upwards of $200 a few months ago for a high end 925XE board are basically SOL.
As it did with the Pentium D 840 and 955 chipset, Intel released the Pentium D 820 with its optimized partner, the 945 chipset.

 Intel's Pentium D 820 and Pentium 4 670 processors - The Tech Report - Page 1
The cores on the Pentium D 820 pulse along at a relatively leisurely pace of 2.8GHz, but there are two of 'em, so its overall performance in multithreaded applications or when multitasking may be superior to a single-core CPU.
The Pentium D is a de-tuned version of the Smithfield core that's had its Hyper-Threading capabilities disabled and its clock speed dialed back a few notches to 2.8GHz.
For many single-threaded tasks, one of the Pentium D 820's 2.8GHz cores should be sufficient, but it's hardly quick by current standards—especially when you consider that the long pipeline of the Prescott/Smithfield cores means lower clock-for-clock performance.

 Pentium D 820 vs. Athlon64 X2 4400+ Overclocking @ TechSpot
Current Intel dual-core processors are very affordable with the Pentium 4 D 820 costing ~$230.
At their stock frequencies the AMD Athlon64 X2 4400+ is naturally going to be much faster than the Intel Pentium D 820.
The Pentium D 820 is easily capable of achieving a clock frequency in excess of 3.5GHz and with some more extreme measures capable of surpassing the 4GHz mark, very impressive indeed.
