The memory performance of the QX6700 is much the same as that of the E6700. Both processors are operating at 2.66GHz using a 1066MHz quad-pumped FSB, so the similarities in memory performance are not all that surprising. In fact, all four configurations delivered similar memory performance and all four used the same DDR2-800 memory.
You should get used to this scenario where the Core 2 Extreme X6800 shows a slight performance edge because the tests take better advantage of higher clock frequencies than the extra cores.
