It seems Intel Kentsfield reviews are popping up in droves today. I posted one from Tech Report a while ago and now there are three more for you to check out from Hexus, Tweak Town and Tech Spot.

Tech Spot says: "Step aside dual-core, it is now the time of the quad-core and you better believe it. The new quad-core series consists of the Core 2 Quad Q6600 and the Core 2 Extreme QX6700. Both feature a dual 4MB L2 cache, operate on a 1066MHz FSB, and have a thermal output of 130 watts. However, the Core 2 Quad Q6600 is not scheduled for release until early next year, and so today we will be looking at the more powerful Core 2 Extreme QX6700 version, which Intel had promised to make available this month, humming along to the tune of just 2.66GHz using a cool 1.34 volts of power."Hexus says: "Aside from the flagship QX6700, which takes over from the X6800 as Intel’s most extreme Extreme, there are already two versions for more modest users, the Q6600 and Q6400. We got our hands on all of them, and put them up against a variety of pretenders, from Core 2 Duo and Pentium D stable mates to AMD’s current dual-core finest. So read on to see if Intel’s Core 2 Quad really is the processing powerhouse we were all expecting!"
