hi i wanted to know something. as we know core 2 duo e6320 will be launching soon, how much performance difference can we expect from e6300? as e6320 has 4mb cache and e6300 has 2mb cache. one more thing, i have heard that e6320 will not have a feature called VT, but e6300 has it. what is VT and how is it important? hope to hear from u soon

More about : explain

It will perform up to 5% better or something like this and virtualization, roughly speaking, is that thing that makes two operating systems run in parallel using the same CPU.

then is it worth to buy e6320 as it does not have vt?

the e6320 is killer chip for 4mb

i use e6600 just for that reason - this puts even more heat on amd

yeah thats the thing really good in it, 4mb cache. but do u think VT is really important that without it we must not buy this processor? as m25 said it is used to run two os parallely.

Most probably you won't need VT (unless you have two critical apps based on two different systems such as windows and MacOS. However, after spanning the very basic front line (E6300, 6400, 6600, 6700 and XE6800), intel will start rolling up the likes of 4300, 6320 etc, playing with cache, clock rate, FSB and technologies like VT. It's likely that some E6330 or 6350 will have both 4M L2 and VT.

isnt there anyway to unlock the remaining 2mb cache in e6300? i have heard that it has 4mb cache but 2mb cache has been disabled, in e6300.

Nope, not possible. Yes, it's true that current E6300's are made with 4MB, and 1/2 disabled.

It is showing up preorder now --- some people have their hands on it... but release is officially Jan. 21st.

I would wait a few weeks after that, eTailers and the channel are going to do some price gouging to the first set of suckers. The 1000 SKU trays are prices at $163, the price drops in Q2 will push that down to the 140 range as I recall. qcmadness is updating a rumor/roadmap thread on occasion for AMD/Intel, just search his name and scroll to you find it.... he gives details there.

Jack

It will drop to $113 Jack. ;) 

Baron's gonna blow a fuse! :lol:
