Just wondering which CPU performs better, I'm lazy and didn't do the research myself I figure someone knows, or if someone has 3d mark 06 CPU scores for them.

More about : e8400 wolfdale q6600

Look for yourself.

I just explained this in another thread, but ill do it again lol

Alright well the E8400 is dual-core and the Q6600 is Quad-Core. Now in game performance the E8400 will beat the Q6600 in most games. But if you pit the E8400 against the Q6600 in a game or program thats optimized for 4 or more cores than the Q6600 will come out on top. The problem is most games are only coded for a max of 2 cores, and the E8400 has 2 cores that are clocked higher than 2 of the 4 that the Q6600 has. But when all four lower clocked cores are against the 2 higher clocked ones then the Q660 will win. Now both deliver awesome general performance (not games, ect.) the Q6600 will deliver better general performance. Also the Q6600 is more future proof because as newer games come out they are optimized for more cores, and as I covered in any 4 core optimized program the Q6600 comes out on top.


Uhh, I mean, Go look for yourself! yeah.. i fit in, thats right

its difficult to find these CPU's in the same tests, and if someone already knows then it is much less effort to simply say so.

This is a new and exciting topic, for sure.

hmmm interesting hostility, you ask yourself which is more work, someone copy pasting what they posted in another thread or me looking, possibly hopelessly, for the same information. Thank you for the answer, that is what I figured.

The E8400 also uses less power, and is therefore cooler. This means that it can be OCed way more on just air. 3.8ghz+ is not uncommon on air for the e8400, it is the best "affordable" gaming CPU. The q6600 is definitely superior for video editing or anything that is threaded for more than two cores. Games are not likely to be anytime soon.

3.8 please! 4.0 to 4.4 on air i got 3.8 with my stock cooler<smiles>
