hothardware.com: Weve just posted a new article at HotHardware exploring the performance and overclockability of Intels upcoming Core 2 Duo E6750 processor. The E6750 differs from the older and similarly clocked E6700 in that its front side bus frequency has been increased to 1333MHz, but this isnt a simple speed bump. The E6750 is also based on a new stepping and revision of the Conroe-core which resulted in some excellent overclocking. How does almost 4GHz with the stock air-cooler sound?
techgage.com: When Bearlake launched last month, it opened the doors for native 1333FSB processor support. That's where the refreshed Conroe line-up comes into play. In our performance preview of the E6750, we will show you what to expect when its released later this summer.
techreport.com: INTEL FIRST UNCORKED its Core 2 processors last July, and believe it or not, relatively little has changed since then. Oh, sure, they've introduced quad-core variants of those processors that are essentially two chips in one package and a few low-end parts, but that's about it. The top-speed-grade Core 2 processor last July was the Core 2 Extreme X6800 at 2.93GHz, and it remains the top speed grade today. That's a remarkable amount of stability in a year's time, but then the Core 2 hasn't needed much helpAMD hasn't yet caught up to it in performance.
bit-tech.net: The CPU market has seen some quite significant changes over the last twelve months, as AMD lost the overall performance crown it had held since late in 2003. Of course, the enthusiast market is a relatively small one in the grand scheme of things and during this period Intel was still selling many times more processors than AMD.
pcstats.com: The coolest thing about the new 1333MHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors like the E6750 is its overclocking capability! The previous Core 2 Duo CPU generation could reach 3.4-3.6 GHz without much difficulty, but the new 'G0' stepping can do even better. The Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 PCSTATS tested was able to hit a spectacular 3.8 GHz while the stock Intel heatsink. We've already read reports online of other benchmarkers who have achieved close to 4 GHz on air cooling!
tweaknews.net: The people that will be taking advantage of this new processor will be the new system builders trying to get their best bang for the buck at the moment. Seeing this processor can be purchased for under US$200, it is a lot cheaper than the US$320 E6700 it is replacing. In my opinion, Intel is inviting people to take advantage of this processor by cutting the price so drastically that the price difference could allow you to buy the different motherboard to take advantage of it.
driverheaven.net: It is hard to believe that it has been nearly a year since Intel first launched the Core 2 brand of CPUs; it seems much longer. This is not a negative statement, but there have been so many revisions of the product line up since then that it seems like the Core 2 should have been around for much longer. Regardless of budget there is now a dual or quad core CPU to fit everyone's requirements with speeds ranging from 1.6GHz to 2.9GHz. Due to some rather disturbing delays in the release of competing products from AMD, Core 2 has gone unchallenged in the desktop sector, however this hasnt stopped Intel from producing more high specification processors and it is these we are reviewing today, the Core 2 Extreme QX6850 and Core 2 Duo E6750.
legitreviews.com: We were able to crank up the FSB on the Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 all the way to 460MHz without even touching the voltages on the board. After increasing the CPU voltage to 1.4500V the FSB was able to be increased 20MHz higher to 480MHz FSB or a quad pumped speed of 1920MHz, which is more than we expected to hit. This is an overclock of 1169MHz, an overclock of 44%, on a processor that comes at a lucrative price point...
bit-tech.net: At the end of last month, we previewed the performance of Intels then soon-to-be-released Core 2 Duo E6750 Intels first desktop processor with a 1333MHz front side bus speed. During that article, we hinted that the release of a whole host of 1333MHz FSB processors was imminent and that day has finally arrived. In conjunction with its scheduled price cuts, Intel will introduce five new processors with 1333MHz front side buses into the market on July 22nd and we have had three of them in-house for a bit of benchmarking over the past few weeks.
