XtremeSystems benchmarked a 2.13GHz Intel Conroe processor. This dual-core processor has 4MB L2 cache and was overclocked to 2.66GHz on stock voltage and stock Intel aircooling.

The CPU scored 13588 3DMarks in 3DMark05 with 2x 512MB DDR2 PC4200 memory, ATI Radeon X1900 XTX graphics card and the Intel D975XBX motherboard.
Let me further clarify the significance of this score. This is on an Intel 975X chipset, not ATI for best CF scores, 975X. Second, this is an Intel board. Not bad for a board built for stability and not all-out speed. Third, all stock cooling with absolutely no modifications to any component. And lastly, I am severely limited by FSB on this board. This Conroe could go much higher if I had the right board.
