    RottenEgg is the last place anyone should look for a fair price on new products.

    It has begun :)
    Btw, anyone can tell me what SLI mobos work with these procs? I have a buyerwho wants most of my PC parts and the X6400 sounds like a good upgrade option.

    My question is three fold:

    1.) What the hell is LGA776 (I assume that will still fit 775 boards)?

    2.) How do these compare to other dual cores? (i.e. would a 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300(Conroe) beat out a 3.0GHz Pentium D 930 (Prelser) in benchmarks? [if so please state why])

    3.) How are you going to overclock a processor that is already at 1066MHz FSB?

    EDIT: I suppose you could raise your multiplier, but I don't know how many boards support that.

    No suprise there. I'm going to wait and see their true performance before I move, but from what I've seen so far they look very tempting...

    @error_f0rce:

    1. That "776" is a typo, it should be 775 (or else Intel has quietly released a new socket that I haven't heard about ;p ).

    2. Conroes have proven amazingly fast; all engineering samples that Intel have released have easily beaten comparable parts. As demonstrated here, the E6700 easily (easily!!!) beats AMD's newest FX-62 chip.

    3. People lucky enough to get their hands on engineering samples have reported some pretty impressive results. For example, one user has overclocked an E6600 to 3.9GHz - extremely impressive, considering that the E6600 clocks at 2.4GHz by default.

    INTEL ISN'T LAUNCHING Conroe on July 14 as we told you earlier unless you happen to be in Europe.

    If you are in most of the US, then it is on the 13th, but east coasters can take their pick. The NDA expiry was pulled in to 9PM PST on July 13.

    thats according to the inq but cant really trust them all the time. So are they actually shipping these chips out to people?

    You can already find cheap DDR2 667 memory modules (rated to run at 1333Mhz quad pumped if I'm not mistaken), so there's plenty of room for OCing these puppies if the mobo's chipset supports higher than 266Mhz FSB frequencies ;)

    Btw, are these procs supported by any SLI mobo, or should I wait for nVidia to release a new revision of the nForce chipset?

    Don't they have planned 30-50% price cuts for the launch day of conroe or something?

    Here's the answer to that question: "You can chose between Intel's 975X and P965 chipsets and Nvidia's upcoming nForce 590 SLI." (Taken from Tom's Hardware http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/07/14/core2_duo_knocks_out_athlon_64/page10.html)

    POGE - you must be a wealthy individual to speak in such tones!

    :)

    LOL!

    APK

    P.S.=> Whew... that is not exactly cheap, nor in my current price-range threshold of pain, & a bit rich for my tastes (@ least now)... Ah, the prices you pay, literally to play (faster)... apk

    No not cheap - more than the average person spends on an entire PC... but I bet it is quick :D!

    It is fast man, & I am more convinced than EVER now as of today in fact...

    What did that to me?

    Well, these latests in reviews from Tom's Hardware, Hardware Analysis, & HEXUS.NET websites (done this past week afaik in their hands-on tests):

    TOM's HARDWARE REVIEW: Game Over? Core 2 Duo Knocks Out Athlon 64 (Quake 4 smp patch test page)

    http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/07/14/core2_duo_knocks_out_athlon_64/page12.html

    Pay CLOSEST attention to the Quake 4 SMP patch test @ the bottom & I run an AMD Athlon64 x2 @ 4800+ rating, & it is NEAR BOTTOM (in quite the company of cpu competitors granted, but still... whew!)

    & this test also:

    HARDWARE ANALYSIS REVIEW: Core 2 Duo testing (Quake 4 SMP build test page)

    http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/article/1833.3/

    HEXUS.NET: Intel Conroe Core 2 Duo/Extreme Processors

    http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=6184&page=1

    :)

    * Even though this shows my system is no longer going to be "state-of-the-art"/"one-of-the-best" etc. et al, still interesting to see for myself, what will be soon!

    APK

    P.S.=> I "centered" on the game Quake4 for 2 reasons:

    To show a game I like & how it will perform on this new CPU (vs. my own in signature below) & also to see what diff. the use of the "SMP/Dual-or-more-capable" code build of Quake 4 SMP would yield, better scores etc....

    I like the game, & thus, needed that data! apk
