that seems like a good move by Intel.
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 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.
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
