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."

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.

its really not. I always thought it best to do large speed jumps. like right now I'm still using a p3-600/512k , I plan on upgrading to a quad core next year.

The speed difference WILL be worth the money ;)
