Default Multi-Core Confrontation: Core 2 Quad Q6600 vs. Core 2 Duo E6850

While AMD keeps postponing the launch of their quad-core processors to the end of this year beginning of next, Intel Company is offering very affordable quad-core CPUs from Core 2 Quad family. However, can Core 2 Quad processors be regarded as a worthy alternative to popular dual-core solutions?

I will presume Intel wants to sell more E6850 than Q6600 based on cost when 2X cost more if not double. Quad Core will replace dual core in popularity contest amongst enthusisasts at this price.

for the same price you are better of with a higher clocked C2D if you don't plan to overclock.

I thought that too, especially since the dies used on the Q6600 aren't crappy ones at all but at the current pricing a Q6600 is desirable for professional users and enthusiasts.
