  • Summary: With a default speed of 2.93GHz, this is currently the fastest desktop quad-core CPU on the market. At its default speed, the QX6800 didn't perform much faster than the QX6700, but we were able to overclock it reliably up to 3.47GHz, where we observed much better gains in performance.
  • Pros: Was reliable when overclocked to 3.47GHz, Works in all current 965 chipset-based motherboards
  • Cons: Not much of a speed improvement over the QX6700
