Fourthly, you know nothing about this.. but I'm not trying to be rude.
And yes, my Kentsfield will KILL ANY Yorkfield at stock.
First, it's a tweaked version of current Core 2s
Second, cache is huge when you're talking about large multi-threaded processes, especially in the Intel architecture.
Third, what's your point? Your q6600 is overclocked, why not compare it to the max overclock of a qx9770.
The 9770 will def have a unlocked multi (well if current extreme versions point to anything) which will make it easier to overclock. Also, the fact the at 45nm, they produce less heat so therefore can overclock higher will mean your 4.0 will be eaten by like a 4.2 or higher. The list goes on and on, but the point is the q6600 is in no ways superior to the qx9770
