In a nut shell the new Kentsfield core 2 Extreme is just two Core 2 Extreme X6800’s, which is a good thing. The X6800 we reviewed here was a huge performer for gaming and general computer work.Review excerpt: "Now comes the CPU de grâce, a processor that takes advantage of the Core 2 Duo's modest heat output by cramming two of those chips together into a single socket, a product Intel can plausibly claim is the world's first quad-core CPU. The Core 2 Extreme QX6700 isn't exactly cheap and doesn't run especially cool, but it will turn your spare bedroom into the computing equivalent of a government astrophysics lab and make the neighbors terribly jealous—provided your neighbors are total geeks."
