Summary and Conclusion
Performance Summary: Throughout our entire benchmark suite, the Core 2 Duo E6750 performed on-par or slightly faster than the similarly clocked Core 2 Duo E6700. The E6750's higher-clocked front side bus equated to more memory bandwidth in the synthetic tests, which resulted in performance gains of roughly 1% - 6% in our real-world tests.
Other than the chip's performance and overclockablity, there isn't much more we can report in regard to the Core 2 Duo E6750. Intel will be talking about pricing and availability sometime in the not too distant future. Our performance and overclocking data reveals some interesting information, however. As we've already mentioned the E6750's higher-clocked front side bus frequency resulted in more memory bandwidth which in turn resulted in somewhat higher performance overall versus the similarly clocked E6700. More interesting - at least in our opinion - is the E6750's new core revision and stepping, which resulted in massive overclocking headroom. Overclocking isn't a given of course, but if our sample is any indication of what retail-ready E6750's can do, these chips are going to be quite popular when they are released, as long as pricing is in line with Intel's current offerings.
