"the Core 2 Duo chips include not only the fastest desktop chips on the market, but also the most cost-effective and among the most power-efficient." Most reviewers evaluated three chips that will formally launch later this month: the Core 2 Extreme X6800, the Core 2 Duo E6700 and the E6600. The Extreme version runs at the fastest clock speed and costs a lot more than the E6700 and E6600, but it will be the most powerful desktop PC chip on the planet when it is released.

Anandtech, which was one of the sites that was granted access to a preproduction version of Conroe, declared that "Intel's Core 2 Extreme X6800 didn't lose a single benchmark in our comparison; not a single one." Even Intel's mainstream E6700 and E6600 processors beat AMD's highest-performing chip, the Athlon FX-62, in several benchmarks.
Just been reading about this new chip in a magazine and all i can is it puts an AMD 64 FX to shame. Lightning quick in video encoding thanks to its new architecture and it's a great overclocker too.

Personally I think we should always read reviews like this Twice!

(They cost Intel so much to publish! ":O}

I know it sounds a bit 'hyped up' but i can't wait for one of you guys to tell us personally how good this chip is
