Looks to me that the review had graphs showing the reviewed product at stock speed, and at potential overclocked speed, so you could compare it against other AM2 products, namely the 3800+ and 5000+. The Conroe results were added as a point of relevance.
With Conroe costing over $200 at many retailers right now ($250 at NewEgg wasn't it?), a $150 X2 3600+ is not exactly "priced exactly the same". Even the RRP of the Conroe is over $30 more expensive than the stock X2 3600+ price. So that's a blatant lie on your part. Let us not take the cost of the motherboard into consideration, Conroe is very new, so motherboards are still quite highly priced.
The TDP is roughly the same for both processors at stock speeds. The E6300 is better performing however, for the extra $50 - $100 you pay currently.
The E6300's don't overclock that great according to all the reviews I've seen. 2.5GHz seems an average result. The higher end Conroes do overclock very nicely however.
So, in conclusion, the review gave all the information allowing for the informed and intelligent reader to form their own opinion. If you are incapable of doing that, then who is the 'stupid' person?
