    I've been told that the 6300 and 6400 are actually cut-down Conroes. The "true" Allendales are the future 4300 etc chips from Intel, with lower FSB's etc.. :)

    Yep, that's true - at the time C2D was released, Allendale was the name applied to all 2MB cores. However, it is actually a cut down Conroe, as the article states :)

    hmm. would that imply that one might be able to hack the core and activate the remaining 2 mb cache on the older ones??

    You'd think they would have / Should have done this when they disabled that section :wallbash: Was there any reason for not doing it then?

    nice power characteristics.... might get one for my server, or to connect it to my tv as a media center.
    lets hope that C2D becomes revised and consumes less...

    Blast. Just a week or so after I bought mine.

    Yes, I know technology keeps moving on. You should, too. :p

    If you fancy taking off the heatspreader, pulling out your electron microscope and repairing a load of 65nm traces that have been burnt through with a laser, go ahead. And please remember to video the results and post in the forums. Kudos!

    Seems like a simple update, but one which will save many people some money, good stuff.

    Oh btw, I scream, you scream, we all scream for a new intel image :-D
