From what I have read, the E6600 and the Xeon 3060 come from the exact same batch of CPUs.

I am really confused as to which one to get. Seems to be that there are really no differences between the chips. Dailytech calls it "Intel badge engineering at its finest," however some speculate that these chips are binned to peform better.

I am ordering tonight, so which one should I get? There is a $16 premium for the Xeon 3060.

Website's like Anandtech do not look within the physical properties themselves, they just look at the technical information given by manufacturers. As for myself, I have looked within the physical properties of chips, even opening up my Cloverton ES to look inside it, which is now broken into many bits I might add.

Xeon's are indeed Intel finest engineered processors, with the exception of Itanium based processors. However they do, obviously, contain additional registers. If they did not they would be absolutely identical to E6xx0 processors, which would force the brand name to be identical.

In truth the X3060 is the more powerful hardware component, as it contains, I believe, 17 additional registers, a single updated SSSE3+ extension, and is based on some of the best C2D silicon available at the time of manufacturing.

As Dailytech put it, "Intel badge engineering at its finest." I do not think there is any difference between Core 2 Duo E6600 and Xeon 3000 except for the quality of the components used. You have read far more technical data than have however, so I guess we will see when I test this little puppy.

Information is always a good sign about a particular item.

However looking at the physical information and design structure first hand is always the best way to deal with these sort of problems

Another Vote for he Xeon..Seems like te best choice out of the two after reading.

You know, they also make the E6300 and E6400 equivalents with 4MB of cache... that's pretty nice... for me Might have to upgrade to a 3050 and get my rig really folding.... though finding a dealer here in canada is damn near impossible.

Good purchase!
