Intel claims 40% performance gain with new Core 2 Extreme processor
Intel is using E3 to show off its next generation gaming processor, Core 2 Extreme, and highlight its performance capability. They claims that the CPU will be 40% faster than its predecessor and that new enthusiast PCs will outrun Sony's PS3 in graphics performance. I think comparing their new processor with a gaming console if really pointless. You can't really compare apples with bananas after all.
