    S939 Core Revisions

    What differences are there between the E3 and E6 steppings on the S939 single core x64's?

    E6's use a more environmentally-friendly manufacturing process, and in most cases are poorer overclockers than the E3's (although there are exceptions of course).

    Fair enough, thought I'd read somewhere about a revised memory controller, might have been one of the other revisions then...

    Main revisions to memory controller were from Winchester cores to Venice cores (i.e. "D" series to "E" series). Added the ability to use multiple sticks at DDR400.
