Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800 launched

Posted on Monday, April 09 2007 @ 13:05:07 CEST by

Reviews of Intel's new quad-core 2.93GHz processor are popping up everywhere on large hardware review websites. This is Intel's new state-of-the-art desktop processor with a price tag of $1,199, it's still made at 65nm, has 8MB L2 cache, an unlocked multiplier and a huge power consumption of 130W. In Q3 2007 the price of this processor will drop to $999.

Here's a snip from The Tech Report's review:
You may have gathered that the Core 2 Extreme QX6800 is the fastest desktop processor that money can buy. No nuance is required to discuss this one. The QX6800 nearly swept our entire benchmark suite, and in many cases, it crushed its main rival, the Athlon 64 FX-74. As one test result showed us, Intel's new top quad-core processor achieves nearly 15 times the performance of a 1GHz Pentium III. To an old-timer like me, that stat puts this beast into perspective perhaps more than any other. This thing is an absolute wonder of Moore's Law.
