Intel quad-core QX6700 reaches system builers

Posted on Thursday, October 12 2006 @ 20:06:25 CEST by

TG Daily reports the quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor from Intel has reached system builders.
Kentsfield will ship with 8 MB of L2 cache and a clock speed of 2.67 GHz to keep the processor within a 110 watt power envelope - up from 65 watts of the dual-core Core 2 Duo E6700 with the identical clock speed. Since Kentsfield will be aimed exclusively at the enthusiast segment initially, we expect performance and boutique PC builders to offer overclocked versions of the processor right away. A recent benchmark series of the processor conducted by Tom's Hardware Guide revealed that the processor runs stable at 3.33 GHz and, at that level, offers about twice the performance of a Netburst-based Pentium EE 965 processor, while running in a similar power range. However, an idle 3.33 GHz Kentsfield consumes about as much power as a Core 2 Duo under full load, Tom's Hardware said.
