The folks over at fx57 managed to get their hands on a pre-production version of Intel’s 45nm Wolfdale (Dual-Core) and ran a few benchmarks against it.
The most surprising result turned out to be SuperPI where the 45nm Wolfdale, clocked at 2.67 GHz outran the current e6700 Core 2 Duo, also at 2.67 GHz, by roughly 5 seconds (14.15 compared to 19.18). The score turned out to be even higher than the x6800 clocked at 2.93 GHz by over 3 seconds.
