SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.
At defaults there are only a few points between the 2 CPU's. At identical clock speeds, the CPU performance between Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme are identical. When at max speed Core 2 Extreme manages to gain some breathing room.
Memory Performance is interesting - at maximum OC speed Core 2 Duo manages to beat the Core 2 Extreme just as it has a slightly higher FSB.
