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!
