The Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 CPU is a Dual Core CPU (Central Processing Unit) designed by the Intel corporation. Computers depend greatly on their CPU in order to function properly. A PC with a fast CPU can execute much more processor intensive programs such as games. The default CPU settings found in a PC's boot menu only allow the CPU to process at a set speed. In order to push the processor past the set speeds and increase performance, overclocking is used. A CPU is overclocked by raising a few settings in the computer's boot menu.
