|This is what we can tell you after several nights of burning the midnight oil, grueling tests and experiencing the deficiencies of several components first-hand. The new processors, which are now produced on a 45 nm fabrication process, not only consume phenomenally little energy, they also offer outstanding overclocking potential. Even with the processor overclocked to its limit, its thermal dissipation and power consumption are almost on par with those of today's Core 2 CPUs - at their default settings. The new SSE4 instruction set and the larger L2 Cache of 12 MB are meant to give the already speedy Core 2 architecture another performance boost. Does this really make sense?|
If only I had $999.
