the benchmark numbers for the Q6700 are wayyyy better than the Q6600. id much rather go with the 6700 if i were getting a 65nm chipset. as for the 45nm chipset they are referring to, there are many other factors that go into it. i do believe the L2 cache is higher on the newer chips which does help greatly. somebody please correct me if im wrong though.
