The long-awaited Intel Conroe processors have finally been announced. We will start our Conroe family performance investigation with the youngest model in the family. This review will reveal the most extensive performance analysis, overclocking experiments and a detailed review of one of the first mainboards supporting the promising newcomer.
If Athlon 64 processors used to outperform their competitors in 3D games quite tangibly, now we can say the same about Core 2 Duo. E6300 processor working at its nominal speed appeared faster than Athlon 64 3800+ in most games: 6.8% faster in Quake 4, 7% faster in F.E.A.R., 18% faster in half-Life 2 and 18.7% faster in Far Cry. After overclocking, the situation looks even rosier for this processor: Core 2 Duo is an indisputable absolute leader.
