So do those extra 267 million clock cycles each second make any big difference to the performance the two Core 2 Duos offer?
Once again, we used MSI' P35 Diamond as the basis for our tests. We plugged in 2GB of Kingston KHX11000 1066MHz DDR 3 memory - rated at 7-7-7-20 - and an Nvidia GeForce 8600 GTS-based graphics card.
Longer bars are better
Timings in seconds
Shorter bars are better
As you can see from the charts on the previous page, there's not a lot in it, certainly not in 'real world' application-based tests like POV-Ray and DVD encoding - what's five seconds when you're encoding a video?
Thermal Analysis Tool
I'm not taking the numbers as holy writ however I only ran the tool as I could feel the expelled air was cooler on E6750 than with E6700.
Had i said 'I think it runs cooler' I would fully expect readers to ask how much cooler. This may not be a full answer but I hope it's better than nothing.
your all wet
the e6700 and e6750 are overclocked chips it so happens
that it's OK to do that they can take it but I hate to see people
say this is a bug etc or it's the errata all chips have these things
get over it you would never know of it if they hadn't published
the information I am using one of those chips it's a delight
but when you increase the heat and the voltage you are going
to decrease stability and lifespan of all components live with it.
One other thing these chips will be much cheaper much sooner
than anything AMD ever made.
Intel Thermal Analysis Tool
My understanding is that this utility is only intended to be used with mobile CPUs. It cannot be relied upon to be accurate for other Intel products ( in fact, the consensus seems to be that it is way off).
Doesn't it seem like the faster bus *should* make more of a difference?
Seems to me that the faster bus should have a larger impact than it does (1 to 2%?)
So my question is, can we ID what the real bottleneck is, and maybe the next gen chip can address that?
So, have Intel sorted out any of the bugs in the Core Duo, some of which are "interesting" (for "interesting", read "errr ....I'll try something else, thanks")
