Intel launched their latest flagship desktop processor Core 2 Extreme QX6850 today.

HotHardware published a benchmark test of the QX6850: "It took a small voltage bump to 1.45V in the BIOS to hit 3.73GHz. To achieve this, we raised the FSB to 466MHz and dropped the multiplier to X8. Once we hit our highest, stable clock speed, we were surprised how stable things were even with a relatively low cost standard HSF cooler. We used an Artic Cooling Freezer 7 cooler to achieve these results." TechGage has a review of the new Core 2 Extreme QX6850 up: "Intel today is announcing their 1333FSB Core 2 line-up, which consists of three dual-cores, including the E6750 we previewed a few weeks ago, and also the 3.0GHz quad-core that we are testing out today. Read on as we explore all of what Intel's latest flagship processor has to offer."
