[H]ard|OCP found some X2s clocked a little lower than the ones they have been benchmarking recently, in the hopes of getting some overclocking done. After reaching 2.7 GHz, an increase of 1/2 a GHz, at a 340 MHz processor bus, and the RAM humming along at 1088MHz, they concluded that yes, there is some potential there.

Well, after a successful trip to Taipei for Computex last week, a couple of items made their way to my house.
That is a Merom core processor, model T7400 running at 2.16 GHz with a 667 MHz FSB and 4MB of L2 cache on the left. On the right, a Conroe core E6700 processor running at 2.67 GHz with a 1066 MHz FSB and 4MB of L2 cache. Hmmm....??
Keep checking back as we await a couple of BIOS updates to help our testing begin!

HotHardware might not have been at Computex, but they weren't being lazy either. They have been testing the 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo and the 2.93GHz Core 2 Extreme against an FX-60, so drop by to see how the Core series performs.

I didn't want anyone to think I wasn't covering the Computex Show properly, so I thought I'd go ahead and make some interesting news posts here before getting my entire article online later in the week.
The first day of the show, ATI demonstrated their adaption of GPU-based physcis acceleration to a few journalists in a very small room. Nothing very new was shared, though they officially announced support for Havok FX, something we already knew about since GDC in March. We were already told they would support physic
