Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800


$700.00 Released June, 2006

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Faster and more stable than the AMD CPUs released at around the same time. Reliable build quality ensures you'll never have to deal with a faulty unit. Plenty of processing speed for gaming enthusiasts.

The Cons:Warms up quickly and gets very hot. Prone to overheating and shut-down if the case isn't aggressively cooled. Many motherboards can't run this chip even though they can run others in the same series.

The Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800 is a 65nm, dual-core ‘Conroe XE’ microprocessor released in June of 2006 and designed to replace the dual-core Pentium Extreme Edition processors. Comparable to the weaker Core 2 Duo models, the Extreme X6800 boasts a superior 2.93GHz core speed and an enhanced unlocked multiplier, but maintains 4MB of shared L2 cache.
