Default The New Lord of The Single-Core, Intel Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB performance discovers

Since Intel launched their Core 2 Duo new generation processors, did get
great recommend in mid-range and high-end market, build up with brake
through performance and 65nm tech.

But in the mainstream and entry level side, Intel still use old P4 architecture
to beat AMD K8 series, they also prepare to launch the single core Conroe-L
for new product lines.

In the recent days, we already saw few Conroe-L test, like single core 2.4G
512k version test exposure.

Now I also got 2 Conroe-L CPU, they are 2.8G 1MB and 2.4G 512K version. I
just teal some free time in these 2 days to try some Conroe-L 2.8G
performance and overclock result.

The back of the CPU:
Up left side is Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB, down right side is E6300 1.86G 2MB.





2 of my different 975X boards can not support Conroe-L, maybe have to wait
a new BIOS to fix, ASUS announced their P5B new BIOS last week to support
Conroe-L, and my MSI P965 Platinum also can run Conroe-L smoothly.




Testing platform setup:
CPU:Intel Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB
MB: MSI P965 Platinum
DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
VGA:ELSA GLADIAC 790GS 256B3 2DT
HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
Cooler:TT Sonic Tower





200X14=>2.8G,DDRII 800 CL3 3-3-9
EVERST detail performance

























Super PI and CPU MARK99,
Take a reference test number: Conroe-L 2.4G 512K is about 31 seconds.









With no overclock 7900GS VGA
3DMARK2003





3DMARK2005





The default test of Conroe-L test got great numbers indeed, 1MB version
seems will become the standard version, 512k version might define as Celeron
segment. But no matter Single-Core or Dual-Core, the performance all be
great with new architecture.


The overclocking test will coming soon!!

Overclocked performance:
CPU 247X12=>3467Mhz
DRAM DDRII 811 CL3 3-3-9

EVEREST

























Super PI and CPU MARK99





PCMARK2005





7900GS

3DMARK2003

The performance did have great enhance after overclock,
because itíŽs Single-Core, so the temp. is lower the Dual-Core processors.

Take a break and wait for further extreme testing.

a single core is silly nowadays


I think the cheap Pentium Ds are a great budget choice for the average joe and Intel can use it's 90 nm factories to make them leaving 65 for the better CPUs.

Though, mulitplier 14 will make this a damm nice chip to overclock when you have phase change cooling available. I think those might go all the way to 5GHz (wich isn't possible with E6300/E6400 due to the low multiplier), and so this 1Mb chip might give you better benchmark results then Allendale CPU's. I'm speaking of overclocked results. To bad I allready have this E6300

Testing platform setup:
CPU:Intel Conroe-L 2.8G 1MB
MB: MSI P965 Platinum
DRAM:CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF
VGA:Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX
HD:Seagate 7200.7 80GB
POWER:Corsair HX620W Modular Power Supply
Cooler:TT Sonic Tower

Keep go on with limited testing.
CPU 243X14=>3411Mhz
DRAM DDRII 811 CL3 3-3-9

Super PI 32M





Upgrade the VGA to 8800GTX with default setup testing:

3DMARK2003




3DMARK2005




3DMARK2006




Keep the best in the last, the limited of this Conroe-L.
So far the 65nm Dual Core Conroe overclock limited is about 3.5G to 4GHz
due to the different produced week and quality.





When Conroe-L coming out, I think the frequency woníŽt be that high, might
be under 2GHz for IntelíŽs entry product segment, Conroe-L have great
availability with overclock, the temp. is also lower then Dual Core version, so
I think the overclock range is also about 3~4 GHz!

This time the test with many pictures, because the performance is great
when in the high overclock frequency. Believe or not, Conroe-L will push the
single Core processors into a better generation, letíŽs wait and see!

Announced some coming up test from Windwithme here!
Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX



DFI INFINITY CFX3200-M2/G



CORSAIR Dominator TWIN2X2048-8888C4DF



MSI 975X Platinum PowerUp Edition

this CPU is looking quite good in the OC department, with 14x multiplier, you don't need a very high FSB to reach the CPU limit.

by reducing FSB overclock you decrease risk of data corruption and other problems if the mobo can't handle it

Any plans on using phase change cooling Windwithme?
