Over at XtremeSystems, member windwithme has posted a number of benchmarks with Intel’s coming 45 nm dualcore processor based on the Wolfdale core. Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 sports a 6 MB L2 cache and a clock speed of 3.16 GHz (333*9.5). It seems you won’t need much cooling at all to make this baby fly because by raising the voltage to 1.664 V he managed to push it to a whopping 4702 MHz. Things are looking really good for Intel and not the least the enthusiasts spread around the globe. With AMD and NVIDIA’s upcoming launches later this month, and Intel’s new processors next year, there will be plenty of toys for you to spend your money on the coming months.
