Core 2 Extreme QX6800 2.93GHz Quad Core Launched

Spinnerbait writes "Intel
officially
launched
its next Extreme Edition quad-core desktop processor
today.  The new

Core 2 Extreme QX6800
has frequency parity with its dual-core counterpart,
the Core 2 Extreme X6800 - sans the "Q". At 2.93GHz this makes the Core 2
Extreme QX6800 Intel's highest clocked quad-core desktop processor to date. 
Due to its 2.93GHz clock speed, the QX6800 is as fast as the Core 2 Duo Extreme X6800
while running single-threaded applications.  However,

running multi-threaded applications
that can fully utilize the additional
processing resources afforded by the quad-core design of the QX6800, the
new

Core 2 Extreme QX6800 shown here puts up significantly better performance

numbers than any other desktop PC processor currently available."
