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."

Not buying one yet...

I have a Pentium D920. I might replace it with a 950, which should be great value for money at around $250 once the prices go down, and no need to replace my motherboard (only 3 months old) ;)

But why?

What are you going to be able to do with the 950 that you can't do with the 920?

Good point ;)
I am also wondering if that bit of extra speed is worth the money.
