Woah, dunno if this has been posted but this is news to me!

I look forward to seeing the overclock numbers you guys will produce with those chips.

the Conroes are getting up to 3.0 already anyways...quite easily. Probably just an overclocked chip...same as any of us could do, but it'll cost more.

Iunno, I thought maybe since these were 3ghz stock, people would get it much higher oc's.

No not really because the FSB is already 333MHz (but with a 8x multi) from our C2D at 266Mhz (with a 10x multi) so most mobo will only go to 400-500mhz but with 1066FSB C2D we have the extra 2 multi's. I will believe higher OC's when I see them.

An E6850 just looks like an E6600 overclocked to 333FSB (from stock 266FSB).<br><br>
E6850 stock clock is 3.0ghz and 1333FSB so multi is x9 [3000mhz/(1333mhz/4)].<br>
E6600 stock clock is 2.4ghz and 1066FSB so multi is ALSO x9 [2400mhz/(1066/4)].<br><br>
Unless the E6850 comes with 2x<b>4mb</b> shared L2 cache?<br>
If that amount of L2 cache is shared, it will be a monster.

</div>Yes it is. And that's what I have right now, here look: <a href="http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=128537" target="_blank">http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=128537</a><br />

But I guess the new batch of CPUs are much better because if all they're doing is just clocking them higher, they might also overclock higher than current E6600s can.

Yeah, this is an interesting move, just changing the FSB and adding that secretive TXT, whatever that is. Unless the Bearlake makes these CPUs really go higher, no reason for overclockers to buy them.

<b>rippling</b>; I'm sure that with a BIOS update these CPUs will be compatible with most if not all current (C2D compatible) motherboards and future releases.<br><br><b>Thumper</b>; I'm thinking with these CPUs, overclocking could be a little more interesting but then again........what's the price going to be and I think it'll be more like higher front-side-bus frequency gained than clocks, since that the ratio went down. In the case of the E6600 to a E6650, it went from a x9 to x7 but the fsb is already at 333.......how much higher can it go from there?<br><br>
I know we'll find out.....though I'm not buying one. Somone will eventually test one.

I think they will all OC to the same level around 400-500mhz FSB cos that the mobo FSB limit anyway. It cant go any higher. 500FSB is just crazy and that stil only gets you 3.5Ghz on the E6650, whereas the E6600 could get with 4.5GHz 500FSB. No mobo can really go higher than 550FSB anyway.
