Tech Link (CPU): Conroe E6850 on Air, stability test with Ultra_Low_Volt. ^_^

XS member VictorWang has posted an early benchmark of this amazing CPU. This is an unreleased CPU from Intel and according to the screenshot, this CPU will run at 3GHz. Noticing the max multiplier on CPU-Z, it is easy to deduce that PSB (processor system bus) will be at 333MHz (1333MHz QPB).

It looks like this processor is already validated on Asus motherboard because Asus released a BIOS for their Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard last week of January, with description that reads:

P5B Deluxe Release BIOS 1004
**Please update AsusUpdate to V7.09.02 or later prior making this update.**
**This BIOS does not support roll back to older BIOS**
1 Enhance memory compatibility
2 Support CONROE E0 CPU(FSB 1333)

It is interesting that this processoe runs at a very low voltage, further testament to Intel's commitment to making processors faster yet consuming less power than their previous generation uA. And the high FSB seems to suggest that it'll attain insane FSB overclocks, higher than we've seen from E6000 series. Looks like it's going to be even more interesting this year.

been tooo busy these days, finally got some time playing with new chips.
Conroe E6850es
Stepping 9 = E0

all my E6850es in hand don't like much volts.
defult vcore=1.22~1.24v
< 1.48v maybe the best for E6850.
but...seems overclks better.
max fsb on Air = 533~570.
can we say: E6850 is better than E6600 ?

test results bellow are not the same chip
mobo=asus p5b-deluxe wifi/ap no mod, bios=1004
cooling=coolermaster fujin with 2*1700rpm 12cm fan.
