AnandTech managed to borrow a Conroe test system at IDF, and have some early benchmarks of the machine stacked up against an overclocked Athlon 64 FX-60. The tests show a 2.66GHz Conroe consistently beating an FX-60 at 2.8GHz, in some cases by up to 42%. The gaming results are especially interesting, as they show large performance gaps despite running at 1280x960 and 1280x1024 with high in-game detail levels.
Before you get too excited, we should point out that both test systems were configured by Intel. AnandTech says it couldn't find anything fishy going on, but this isn't quite independent testing with production hardware.
