    Clueless......

    As of this posting there are 24 reviews of the C2D E6850 on Newegg. That's probably all the info you're going to get for a while. I tried to start a thread about the E4500 Allendale, nobody answered it. That's understandable since even Intel hasn't updater their website with mobo compatibility and such.

    to be honest, I don't think you could notice a difference between the two...

    a 2.6GHz C2D is already rediculously fast. there is simply no need for anything faster (unless you just have a money tree in your backyard and need excuses to spend all the money that just "falls" off it ;)). performance-wise; you could measure the difference with benchmarks, but I doubt you would notice any real-world difference.

    my advice: keep your 2.6GHz C2D. you should not need more power than that for a long time ;)
