Default Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800 processor

DO YOU KNOW the one about the rabbi, the chimp, the Catholic priest, and the jar of peanut butter? No? Neither do I, which is a shame, because I could use some filler material right about now. You see, I have to write a review of the Core 2 Extreme QX6800 processor. It's not that this CPU is a boring subject per se; this is, after all, a quad-core monster that runs at 2.93GHz and costs a whopping twelve hundred dollars. It's just that the previous fastest CPU on the planet was its predecessor, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700, and the competition from AMD wasn't really all that close--especially once you figure in things like power consumption, motherboard selection, and overall system costs. Watching the Core 2 Extreme slice through our benchmark suite is much like watching Michael Schumacher's Ferrari start at the pole and lead every lap to the finish in an F1 race. There may be some high-speed twists and turns along the way, but the outcome is never really in doubt.

Now that we've moved from the chimp and the peanut butter to the race car analogy, my work here is almost done. Can I manage to mail in the rest of this one without losing my job? Of course! I'm my own boss. Keep reading if you dare.
