The New Lord of The Single-Core, Intel Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB performance discovers
Since Intel launched their Core 2 Duo new generation processors, did get
great recommend in mid-range and high-end market, build up with brake
through performance and 65nm tech.
But in the mainstream and entry level side, Intel still use old P4 architecture
to beat AMD K8 series, they also prepare to launch the single core Conroe-L
for new product lines.
In the recent days, we already saw few Conroe-L test, like single core 2.4G
512k version test exposure.
Now I also got 2 Conroe-L CPU, they are 2.8G 1MB and 2.4G 512K version. I
just teal some free time in these 2 days to try some Conroe-L 2.8G
performance and overclock result.
The back of the CPU:
Up left side is Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB, down right side is E6300 1.86G 2MB.
2 of my different 975X boards can not support Conroe-L, maybe have to wait
a new BIOS to fix, ASUS announced their P5B new BIOS last week to support
Conroe-L, and my MSI P965 Platinum also can run Conroe-L smoothly.
Testing platform setup:
CPU:Intel Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB
MB: MSI P965 Platinum
DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
VGA:ELSA GLADIAC 790GS 256B3 2DT
HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
Cooler:TT Sonic Tower
200X14=>2.8G,DDRII 800 CL3 3-3-9
EVERST detail performance
Super PI and CPU MARK99,
Take a reference test number: Conroe-L 2.4G 512K is about 31 seconds.
With no overclock 7900GS VGA
The default test of Conroe-L test got great numbers indeed, 1MB version
seems will become the standard version, 512k version might define as Celeron
segment. But no matter Single-Core or Dual-Core, the performance all be
great with new architecture.
The overclocking test will coming soon!!
