Core 2 Duo E6750 and E8400 overclock

If both chips are overclocked to 3.2Ghz, are they relatively the same speed with a 5% margin? If not what gives the other the upper hand?

  1. A superior microarchitecture would give the E8400 a small edge.
  2. Best answer
    ^Actually, the Penryn core is just a shrunk Conroe core (65 nm down to 45 nm). The performance difference is because of the increased L2 cache (4 mb vs. 6 mb) and likely the FSB of the Penryn would be higher (unless you set the multipliers the same for both chips) yeilding more performance across the system.
  3. Though they would likely be within 5% of each other regardless.
