Intel Core 2 Duo 'Conroe' E6700 & X6800 Benchmarks

Super PI & Sisoft Sandra

Super PI 1m & 32m

SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers. It's lightweight to download and can quickly give a good indication as to how fast your CPU & Memory are in comparison to other systems. Lets see how the Conroe performs...

SuperPI 1m

With in excess of 20 seconds difference between the Pentium4 630 and the E6700 the Core 2 Duo's are clear winners in the SuperPI 1m benchmarks. Up until recently, most overclockers could only dream of a sub 20 second 1M SuperPI bench but the Conroe achieves this at stock settings with ease.

SuperPI 32m

Performing a full 32m SuperPI took the Pentium4 630 a total of 37 minutes 15 seconds to complete. This result was yet again completely overshadowed by the Core 2 Duo's, finishing the test almost a full 20 minutes earlier!

This shows the efficiency of the C2D architecture. Getting rid of the long pipelines in Intel's Netburst architecture has really helped the Core 2 Duo, with the SuperPI benchmark really showing how fast the C2D's are.

Sisoft Sandra

Sisoft Sandra is a synthetic benchmark utility capable of reporting and benchmarking a wide range of system components.

Sisoft Processor Sisoft Processor

Sisoft Memory Sisoft Memory

In the Processor Arithmetic and Multimedia benchmarks we can see that the Conroe's enhanced feature set and Dual Core technology clearly has a major advantage in Sisoft Sandra, produces scores 2-3 times higher than the Pentium4.

The memory based benchmarks show us the major advantage of having a processor with Intel's Smart Memory Access incorporated. Reducing the memory latency by 26ns and increasing the bandwidth by around 500-600 mb/s, the Conroe shows a significant advantage over its predecessor. This is an area where previous Intel chips where falling far behind AMD, however with the change to the core architecture, Intel have managed to play catch up.

Not to be a nit picker but I don't think the review is fair. If you used an Intel Pentium D 3GHz, it'd be more fair, but that's Dual Core vs Single Core..

Nice review though, overall.Quote
