First tests of Core 2 Duo E6850 with FSB 1333 MHz on Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4 v3.3
10 days ago, we reported that Gigabyte was one of the first to release motherboards with support for Intel processors running at 1333 MHz FSB.
The company kept its word, thanks to which the enthusiasts with hdtvsg.blogspot.com now you can test your engineering sample of the Core 2 Duo E6850 processor (3.0 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache) on the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4 v3.3.
As a reminder, this processor is notable for having a FSB frequency of 1333 MHz, as well as two other models that are preparing for release in the third quarter of this year, the E6750 and E6650.
These processors support two innovations that are important for the corporate segment: a new version of AMT Pro (Intel Active Management Technology, helps to administer, inventory, diagnose and recover from failures of computers, even if they are turned off or if their operating systems or hard drives have been damaged; isolate infected PCs before malware spreads to other systems on the corporate network) and TXT (Trusted Execution Technology, also known as LaGrande) secure access technology.
The source checked the yet unreleased processor only with the CPU test of the 3DMark`06 package. The result is impressive – the E6850 scored 2,570 points, which is more than any of the currently sold desktop processors.
The tested sample had revision E0, stepping 9 and operated at a voltage of 1.215 V. The multiplication factor of such processors is 9.0.
