"Last month, we were invited to a conference in Munich where Intel gave us the opportunity to run some preliminary benchmarks on one of its upcoming Core 2 Duo desktop processors, based on the eagerly anticipated Conroe core. We were given access to a Conroe-based Core 2 Duo E6700 chip that comes clocked at 2.67GHz Intel said that this chip is not its flagship desktop processor and is actually a run-of-the-mill clock speed on a 1066MHz front side bus. We are expecting Intel's flagship Core 2 Extreme processor to come clocked at 2.93GHz initially.

The Core 2 Duo benchmarks we ran were not completed in our own labs and we have used some unfamiliar tests in order to establish how well the new Core architecture performs. This was because we were not allowed to tweak the system or install our own benchmarks the machine was built and configured by Intel engineers.

Thanks for posting this link. Hopefully those of us with Conroe ready motherboards can look forward upgrades soon.

lol really whats the point of a review if it isnt unbias.

I'd like to see some workstation performance test in union with Xeon or Opteron systems. It would be nice to read a comparative review on benchmark render test in Max, Maya, Lightwave, POV, etc.

Here is an unbiased, independant review: http://anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2771&p=1

Conroe actually looks like a great step forward for Intel over AMD. I'll certainly be shelling out for one :)

[edit] To add: they's be comming out around July 23rd under the brand Intel "Core 2 Duo".

Good link. Anandtech can be trusted for sure, hehehe. I've never been steered wrong by Anandtech reviews. Let's just wait until some hardcore gamers get their hands on these badboys and overclock the mess outa them. I only wish todays games really took full advantage of this tech.

Actually the Core 2 Duos have already been overclocked to all buggery, and set new SuperPi world records.

Here is an informative thread (first post) kept updated with all the newest conroe reviews and benchmarks: http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/Collection-Conroe-Data-Core-Duo-Core-Extreme-ftopict183765.html

I want Project Offset here and now like yesterday. Hehehe. This cpu tech screams to by toyed with in the genteel grips of Offset.

The link to the video of the Sam McGrath interview on this page is insane.

Also games such as Resistance will thrive on the likes of Conroe.
