Review: Loads of power at a discount price

After testing the new QX9650 we decided to check out the least expensive quad-core available now, the Q6600. This CPU comes in two flavors with B3 and G0 stepping. The G0 stepping is superior to B3 stepping, because it offers higher thermal specification.  Its TCase temperature is 71°C vs 62°C, and offers better thermal protection and a 10W reduction in TDP, which is only 95W, compared to 105W with the old one. Overclockers should only select the G0-stepping version.


German Version available here.
