Gamers should be very excited about the new Core 2 Duo E8000 processors. As we know, the gaming applications performance is very sensitive to changes in the cache memory size, which we witness here, too. In some games the youngest Wolfdale processor, Core 2 Duo E8200 manages even to outpace the former top dual-core Core 2 Duo CPU on 65nm core. The top dual-core AMD processor, Athlon 64 X2 6400+ that has never looked too good in games, now gets knocked out completely. It falls far behind even the slowest of the Wolfdales.
