Intel Core 2 Duo X6800 and E6700 Review - Conroe is Here - Processors  3

These three tests are the one area where I saw the Conroe unable to take the lead away from AMD in raw performance.  The performance advantage the FX-62 is moderate, around 8% on average, but the E6700 does out perform the X2 4800+ processor, its closest price competitve part.  The X6800 is able to take the top spot in the Primordia test however.
