"Only a few days ago we looked at the performance of Intel's new Core 2 dual core processors, the Core 2 Duo E8000 series, aka Wolfdale. While a 45 nm quad core Extreme edition processor (Yorkfield) has been available since early winter, the dual-core processors for the mainstream had not been released until recently.
As the first Wolfdale review made clear, the new dual core processors provide a nice performance boost when compared to the 65 nm Core 2 Duo E6000 generation. This time we want to look at the overclocking potential and the power requirements of the new Wolfdale-based 45 nm Core 2 E8000 processors, as the enthusiast crowd has very high expectations since 65 nm Core 2 Duo Conroe already is an amazing overclocker."
