It's not every day we get news stories for free, but it appears that one of our forum members that goes by the alias of windwithme has posted a review of Intel's upcoming Core 2 Duo E8500 processor and he's even managed to overclock it to an insane 4.7GHz with a standard air cooler.

 

The test setup consisted of 2GB of Corsair DDR3-1800 memory, a GeForce 8800GT graphics card and an Asus P5K3-Deluxe motherboard. There's a bunch of pictures of all the kit as well as several screen shots of various benchmarks. At default clocks the E8500 managed to do a 32MB Super PI run in 15min 12.828 seconds, at 4.4GHz on a 491MHz this was reduced to 12min 17.86 seconds,

 

There are also some 3DMark benchmarks and CPUMark numbers. You can read the full forum post here
