Submission + - Intel intros 2.93GHz quad-core processor

Dr. Damage writes: Intel has released its most powerful CPU ever, the Core 2 Extreme QX6800, and The Tech Report compares it to 16 other processors, from AMD's Quad FX down to the cheapest dual-core. The CPUs are tested in 32- and 64-bit applications in Windows Vista x64, including Oblivion, Supreme Commander, Folding@Home in Linux, computational fluid dynamics, and power efficiency. Unsurprisingly, the QX6800 creams the competition.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
