Intel's "Conroe" refresh parts overclocked and benchmarked on XtremeSystems

XtremeSystems forum member VictorWang has come across early engineering samples of Intel’s upcoming Core 2 Duo E6850.  The Core 2 Duo E6850 engineering samples are stepping 9 revision E0. Stock voltage on the Core 2 Duo E6850 engineer samples vary between 1.22-1.24-volts.

Intel expects to launch refreshed Core 2 Duo E6x50 series processors later this year with a 1333 MHz front-side-bus.  The refresh is timed with the new Bearlake Intel chipsets.

VictorWang claims the Core 2 Duo E6850 overclocks very well but dislikes voltages higher than 1.48-volts. When air-cooled, the engineer sample Core 2 Duo E6850 is able to reach front-side-bus speeds of 533-570 MHz, the equivalent of over 2 GHz if you take the quad-pumped bus architecture into consideration.

"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
