The E6300 processor produced roughly 33% more memory bandwidth once overclocked. The overclocked E6700 produced similar margins, gaining 35% more bandwidth. The overclocked E6700 offered just 5% more memory bandwidth when compared to the overclocked E6300 configuration in SiSoft2007. The 3.66GHz frequency of the E6700 came into play once the MemTach results were in. The Analyze 1 results for example, favored the overclocked E6700 by 28% when compared to the overclocked E6300.
