Intel recently launched the 6xx desktop processor series, based on the same 90nm "Prescott" core as the previous 5xx series. Unlike the previous change from 130nm Northwood to 90nm Prescott in early 2004, the 6xx series represents an upgrade adding new features, rather than a major change. Nonetheless the new 6xx series offers at least on paper some interesting new features that should improve functionality and performance. We will first have a look at the theory of these features and then find out what they deliver in reality.
