Intel After an 18-page in-depth review of Intel's new processor line, The Tech Report concludes: "After years of wandering in the wilderness, Intel has recaptured the desktop CPU performance title in dramatic fashion. Both the Core 2 Extreme X6800 and the Core 2 Duo E6700 easily outperform the Athlon 64 FX-62 across a range of applications - and the E6600 is right in the hunt, as well. Not only that, but the Core 2 processors showed no real weaknesses in our performance tests."

Anandtech had the E6300 benchmarked, but not E6400. Depending on the app, it benchmarked anywhere between an X2 3800 and 5000, but usually around a 4400. Maybe a bit faster.

They also looked at the difference between 2-4MB cache, and found it added 1-10% depending on the app. Average was about 3.5%.
