Now, even though the Core 2 Quad spots a total of 8MB L2 Cache,
the BIOS detects it as just 4MB.
The default voltage of the X6800 we ran was 1.2875v and the
default voltagte of the QX6700 we ran was 1.35v. Above, you see the BIOS Processor
temperature readout for each processor compared side by side. The QX6700 runs
about 4C hotter in this environment.
First, I compared the 2 Processors with Sisoftware Sandra Synthetic
The QX6700 is 80% faster in these 2 processor
benchmarks! Sigh… I wish these numbers could translate real-world.
