Drop by Digit Life for a comparison of Wolfdale and Conroe CPU’s, both the top models, the E6800 versus the E8500 and the lowest, the E6500 and E8200.  The clocks are faster on the Wolfdale chips, but not by so much that the difference is hard to spot, Wolfdale does more per clock; and not just a little bit.

“We shall examine two interesting families of Intel processors with 333 MHz (1333 MHz Quad Pumped) FSB, based on the relatively old (Conroe) and relatively new (Wolfdale) cores. We selected the slowest and the fastest CPU from each series. So, even if you are not interested in core comparison, you still get useful information about performance ranges of these CPU families.”
