Yes, that rag of a site is talkng about the new 2.66GHz Xeon with a 1066MHz bus. They run a few tests and it's a tad better than 3220 in OCing, but I doubt anyone would buy a workstation chip to OC.
Especially in light of the FB-DIMM reqs.

Linkage!

If it runs in a desktop board, standard DDR2 memory will work.
Unlike AMD cpus, the memory controller is on the Northbridge.

Xeon 3xxx series is LGA775. They are actually Conroe and Kentsfield cores, not Woodcrest and Clovertown. It works not only on the Intel 3xxx series chipsets, but also on just about all 965, 975, 650, & 680 based motherboards. As I'm sure you're well aware of, those chipsets require DDR2 memory.

The Xeon versions are the same are their Core 2 counterparts other than they are 1 bin higher for better reliability in workstation and entry-level server environments.

Xeon 3220 = Q6600
Xeon 3230 = Q6700

Ask DaSickNinja about his review months ago about how the Xeon 3060 compared to an E6600. It overclocks quite nicely.

Maybe you should learn about the product before asserting that it sucks because it made by Intel.
