    Default P965 now supports quad-core- First peek of Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700

    This is the first time I get the quad-core processor; maybe the 2007 will be
    the first year of quad-core?

    The processor I get processor this time is Intl Core 2 Extreme QX6700, runs
    at 2.66GHz, we can see if there is any benchmark improvement comparing to
    dual-core.

    The GBT’s DS3 has been sold last week, the only board on hand is MSI P965
    Platinum, Let’s see if the most popular chipset P965 does support or not.







    Testing Platform
    CPU:INTEL Core 2 Extreme QX6700
    MB: MSI P965 Platinum
    DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
    VGA:MSI NX7900GT-VT2D512EZ
    HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
    POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
    Cooler:TT Sonic Tower




    the setting of non-overclocking
    CPU 2.66G
    DARM DDRII800 CL3 4-4-9
    VGA 350/1320mHZ

    for general usage, there is not many software support quad-core computing
    I take the Everest the main reference of processor performance

    then we goes to secret Wind-series VGA…

    the quad-core processor shows amazing performance under the benchmark
    software which is supporting multi-core computing

    it shows almost double speed than dual-core in benchmark
    I remember last year when the dual-core processor goes to market, there are
    a lot of consumers worried about the supporting from OS& software.

    After a year, we see more and more OS& software supports dual-core.
    I believe that the software supports quad-core computing will become more
    and more.


    it’s looks like the P965 Express chipset can fully support quad-core processor,
    the consumers do not have to change their motherboards too quickly.

    But the TDP of full loading quad-core computing is not quite low, I suggest to
    choose the better components equipped motherboard ( 4-phase PWM or
    above)
    The sepc and components of MSI P965 Platinum is quite well, and the price is
    lower than competitors, unfortunately the limit of FSB overclocking is only
    going to 340~350MHz…
    We look forward the launching of quad-core and further situation, windwithme is going to next testing…

    cool! ..

    I like the Dominator, DDR2-1000MHz with CL3 timing very impressive!
    and yes, the QX6700 TDP at full-load is quite high.
    Maybe the retail one will be better, I got the B3-stepping and hit 3.8GHz with water-cooled.

    thanks for the post.

    hmm I hope there would be more budget quad core cpu coming out soon! I heard that Window VISTA takes up at least 10 GB HDD 512MB of Ram and VGA cards at least 128 DirectX10 or whatever etc. More eating hardware resource software coming up!! Quad core? That's our solution LOWER PRICE PLEASE!! LOL And where the hell is AMD Quad Core anyway? Low end users needs an option dude... Low money high ambition haha+
