To hit new performance heights the quad-core Intel processor for computer enthusiasts uses 1333MHz bus and operates at 3.0GHz speed. However, what is really interesting about it, is the new G0 processor stepping lowering the heat dissipation and improving the chip’s overclocking potential.
The results of the final rendering tests are quite logical. The number of processor cores had the primary effect on the results in this test, while the CPU clock speed appears secondary. In other words, the performance difference between Core 2 Extreme QX6850 and Core 2 Extreme QX6800 is pretty similar to their frequencies delta.
