“With the geeky madness of this year’s Intel Developer Forum finally winding down, we thought it’d be a good idea to share with you a real preview of Intel quad-core performance. We had the chance to sit down and actually run a handful of benchmarks on a Kentsfield based Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 CPU. This is not our usual in-house evaluation, but rather a small glimpse of the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 confined by how Intel wants us to view it. This is not to complain, as we greatly appreciate this kind of access, but it needs to be understood that all of these benchmarks are run under the tightest of Intel controls both in terms of hardware and marketing.”

Join [H]ard|OCP in a preview of the Kensfield Quad core processor. No one has actually been sent a processor for review, these benchmarks all come from the IDF. Keep in mind that this is a pre-production chip running on a pre-production board.
