Nordic Hardware posted the first Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 (45 nm) benchmarks yesterday, but this time, they've decided to give it all we got. This is just the first round of testing though, there's more to get from the chip.

"After benching the night away, Kinc not only smashed the SuperPi 1M world record with the QX9650 running at 5600 MHz, he also completely rewrote the book on good 3DMark 05 and 06 results. The new world records are now 37,095 points in 3DMark 05 and 27,542 points in 3DMark 06."
