Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 reviewed all over the web

Posted on Monday, June 25 2007 @ 14:45:17 CEST by

As Intel lifted the NDA, reviews of the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 are appearing all over the web. This new Core 2 Duo CPU features a 1333MHz FSB, has 4MB L2 cache and is clocked at 2.66GHz with a thermal design power of 65W (the same as the older Core 2 Duo chips).

The processor isn't available on the market yet, but it's expected that Intel will ship them later this Summer. Intel's roadmap indicates that this chip will be priced at $183. There are many reviews available of this processor so lets take a look if this chip impressed reviewers.

The Tech Report compared this chip to other processors from Intel and AMD and concludes that while this new processor is one of the fastest on the market, it offers only slight performance gains over the E6700 processor.
That's not entirely bad news. The E6750 is still much faster than any dual-core CPU from AMD, and we've learned that current Core 2 Duo processors aren't really hitting a bus bottleneck. That revelation may seem counterintuitive to those of us who watched the Pentium 4 post great gains in performance from nearly every bus speed bump it received, but the Core 2 is much more efficient in its use of bus and memory bandwidth than the Pentium 4 and its offshoots were.
The guys from Firingsquad sound a bit more enthusiastic. They praise the new E6750 for performing about 5% faster in games than the E6700 and say this jumps to 8% if you use 1333MHz DDR3 memory. FiringSquad also says they've managed to overclock the FSB of the new E6750 from 333MHz to 500MHz.
