    Theres another preview on Intels Conroe chip over at the Reg if any ones interested.

    It's on the home page, near top left.

    Again they state the tests were under a "controlled environment", but these chips do seem nice. (as everyone keeps saying)

    PS. Not sure if I'm allowed to link to the Register site, so i'll leave it out for now..

    What I'm waiting to see is a proper review where Intel hasn't setup the rigs, just to drive the nail home. Nevertheless, Conroe still looks lethal.

    Other than that typo, I also noticed the majority of FX62 scores were missing.

    The scores that I did see didnt show a *huge* difference (yes, the FX is more pricey, but plenty of people clock their cheaper opterons to 2.8-3ghz).

    That review was obviously written a few weeks ago, just waiting for the nda to be lifted. The reviewer didn't know the launch date, and didn't seem to be aware of what other versions of conroe would be available (other than E6700).
    From reading that review alone, you'd think the $530 E6700 was the cheapest "4mb L2 cache" conroe available.

    Wonder why they used 667 memory when they state Intel spec says to use 800.

    no matey they aint the first official benchmarks.

    it's the same pre release/pre configured system that everybody else has reviewed.

    i'm guessing it's gonna be another month yet before we can finally see some official benchmarks ( retail chips that is ).
