OC3D Review: Intel Conroe X6800 & E6700

"We've all heard of the latest chip codenamed "Conroe" from Intel. We've all seen its sub 20 second SuperPI results. But is the cost of upgrading worth it? We find out by comparing it to Intel's previous generation chip, the Pentium4."

We also take a brief look at the bad axe

Not to be a nit picker but I don't think the review is fair. If you used an Intel Pentium D 3GHz, it'd be more fair, but that's Dual Core vs Single Core..

Nice review though, overall.

A lot of those benchies are still single core. I kind of agree with you but the P4 D's were a bit of a patch-job operation from Intel. I think looking at old P4 vs was more of an illutrative thing tbh

..and i'm afraid at present we don't have a big tray of processors to choose from

As Kemp said, the comparison was for illustration purposes only to show what advantages could be seen from upgrading to the Core 2 Duo platform.

Reminds me that I have an article here written about the true cost of conroe, its not only the cpu but also the board as well and now taking into account the depreciation of value on the AMD market, where lets face it most people will jump from. Does seem expensive. Still if you game then its gota be worth it
