We've been poking around at a new version of SiSoftware's SANDRA benchmark suite and came across some data that we think many of you will be interested in. Recently we gave you a look at the fantastic performance of Intel's new Core 2 Extreme QX6700 quad-core processor. In that launch article we couldn't confirm lower speed bins or model numbers of future quad-core CPUs from Intel but it seems the good folks at SiSoftware have...
As you can see, though unconfirmed in our launch article, it looks as though Intel will be bringing out a 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad Q6600 and a 2.13GHz Core 2 Quad Q6400. We'd say opt for that Q6400 and overclock it of course. Word is this new quad-cores should hit sometime in Q1 '07. According to SANDRA's measurements here, in the right multithreaded applications, performance should still be quite good for these new lower cost quad-core CPUs.
