My System Specs

Default e6850 at 500 fsb on Gigabyte GA-965P DS3

A bit-tech reporter found this impressive display at CeBit:

"I couldn’t let Tim get all the fun with the probing questions and deduction on the G84/86 front, so after I spotted Gigabyte had an “unknown 3GHz CPU” in an unmodified Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard, I went all out to get the juicy details.

I eventually managed to grind down the Gigabyte rep guarding the system, and he admitted it was a “new” Intel processor with a 1333MHz FSB.

At 3GHz, this means it can only be the next generation Core 2 Duo E6850. He even went as far to pass a comment that it wasn’t that hard to reach 500MHz FSB, but I’m not sure if he was directing it at the motherboard or indicating the new “E6x50” range is very FSB happy.

Given the fact that this CPU in the system was running stock voltages, I’d be inclined to assume he was referring to the latter.

The motherboard was using the latest D10 BIOS for the board, along with some OCZ PC2 9200 FlexXLC at 1:1 500MHz. Gigabyte and Intel are certainly doing something right here, and hopefully this overclocking demonstration will be re-created (and hopefully surpassed) by end users in the coming months."

The voltage could be read incorrectly like most Core 2 Duo CPU's. Might be at 1.5V?

Anyway, nice find.
