Here is a Review of the Core 2 Extreme QX9650 .. this is not the extreme version CPU that was oced to 6ghz in my first post, but yes another Extreme Review.
They oced it to only 3,6ghz.. stock is 3.0ghz, just like the one in my first post, but that place oced one to 6ghz.

Intel's 45 nm Penryn CPU: 4 GHz Air Cooled
11-16-2007, 10:39 PM
Shows a picture of CPU-Z specs and volts to get 3870mhz.
"After looking close at the test system we saw something good and something bad. The good news is that this 3.87GHz beast is air cooled with a heat sink that is 'normal', which means overclocks like this should be easy to reach with aftermarket cooling. The bad news is that the test system was only running in single channel mode, which seemed a bit strange. The Gigabyte GA-X38T-DQ6 motherboard uses DDR3 memory and Intel had a sole Corsair XMS3 DOMINATOR memory module installed running at 880MHz (1760MHz) at 8-8-8 timings, which was a shock. "
"I personally reviewed the Corsair 1800MHz DOMINATOR CL7 DDR3 Memory kit, which easily hit 1920MHz with 7-6-6-20 1T timings when I overclocked a kit on the P35 chipset."
"I asked Intel about the use of single channel memory and they stated that DDR3 memory is holding back the overclock and for stability sake a single module was used. I'm not really buying that as hitting 2GHz on DDR3 memory is possible on the P35 chipset, so hopefully this is a BIOS issue and not a chipset issue. Then again, the X48 Express chipset that is coming out after the X38 Express is said to have a number of DDR3 memory improvements and clock speeds is one of the enhancements."

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">AMD wouldn't comment on the record on what their upcoming Barcelona processor would score, but people in the know said that AMD is getting ~16,000 with a pair of their Barcelona processors on Cinebench 10. If this proves to be true and you keep in mind that the 45nm Penryn V8 system is underclocked right now and scoring ~23,000 on the same benchmark it means things could get interesting really soon.

That is very interesting for sure cause i am wondering are the Barcelonas the lower clocked versions getting that score.
Now not to be confused about AMD's processors here is the code names i found so far.
Barcelona is the codename Socket F for Opteron server CPU.
Agena FX is the codename Socket F for QuadFX server CPU.
Phenom is the codename Socket AM2 and AM3 Desktop CPU.
The Phenoms are the ones that have not been released yet.
Intel still has a few more Codename Quads coming out as well for the Desktop. One being the Nehalem which is the sucessor of the Penryn Yorkfield processors that i listed about in this thread.
The Yorkfield of course is the sucessor of the Kentsfield processor.
Some brief info about the Nehalem.
There is another planned CPU from intel to released in 2009 i think to succeed the Xeon processor and it is called Whitefield as noted in a wikipedia areticle CSI technology won’t appear until the second-generation 45nm processor Nehalem.
CSI = Common System Interface

There is a good article in Saturdays paper in regards to Intel releasing their new cpu's on Monday.

all i see is spam, most of what he says could be in one post IMO

Amdwolfman i posted those post separately as i was looking around the net for more information and posted as i went along, but yes i suppose they could have been put in one post, but i did not do so and will continue to post separately when i find more information.
Intel has released the Yorkfields as you can see one of them on websites for sale the OEM nad Retail version, but i am sure there will be more released soon.
