    Just wanted to give the heads-up to everyone eagerly awaiting the new Mac Pro, that Anandtech has a preview up of the coming Wolfdale processor based on Penryn.

    Link: The Penryn Preview - Part 1: Wolfdale Performance

    They test 2.33Ghz Conroe versus 2.33Ghz Penryn.

    Enjoy :)

    Indeed but they should have Yorkfield numbers up later, comparing it to Kentsfield.

    Since they are based on the same core (Penryn) we should get a clear indication of what we can expect.

    Will Penryn/Yorkfield mean the end of FB-DIMMs? Or are Intel still committed to pairing FB-DIMMs with the Xeon branded releases?

    Good to know (from a hopefully continuing decrease in price point of view). Thanks.
