Intel Core2 Duo E6600 

Released July, 2006
  • 2.4 GHz
  • Dual core
4.8 Out of 10

A fine chip to be sure, and the Core 2's last gasp before the Intel performance-to-pennies juggling act really starts to fall apart.
by Tech Radar (Aug, 2007)
The E6420 doesn't have a vast deficit on the 6600, especially now both have 4MB of L2 cache, and its huge amount of overclocking headroom means it can cruise past this and off into the sunset on a bog standard Intel air cooler.
