    Intel processor questions.

    Can someone tell me the difference between a e6750 and a e6700 other than the extra FSB?
    And why
    * e6750 is £108.69
    * e6700 is £189.16


    One more question.

    Which would be a better buy, an e8400 or a Q6600?

    Thanks.

    1. Just the extra FSB bandwidth
    2. E6750 yields are much higher, thus cheaper.
    3. Q6600.. 4 heads are better than 2, so to speak.

    Re: Intel processor questions.

    Difference between the E6700 and E6750 is basically the FSB speed but because of the increased FSB the E6750 has a lower Multiplier (8x rather than 10x on the E6700) this can make higher overclocks more troublesome as higher FSB speeds are required for the same CPU speed. They also have different core steppings G0 for E6750 and B2 for E6700, you would hope that the later revisions (G0) would be an improvement in either performance or power consumption.

    Cost wise that is just the way it is!

    As for the better buy E8400 or a Q6600 I am firmly in the Q6600 camp but it really depends on what you want to do with it and how long you plan to keep it for.

    Probably relates to the fact that when the second cpu was purchased, it had a higher cost then the other
