    Intel Quad Cores

    What is the difference between the Q6600 and the Q6700 besides the speed, and one is double the price of the other.

    Q6600 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

    Q6700 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115027

    Not much difference at all besides price from what I can tell.
    Check out the 6850 dual core. I just got it recently and it is amazing.

    The quad core is a bust because there isn't hardly any software designed to take advantage of it. Don't waste the extra money on it.

    The CAD group at my company got brand computers, 3.0 ghz Xenon quad cores, and Inventor is only taxing 1 core.

    You talking about AutoCAD? Think it is still single threaded, so it won't take advantage of multiple cores

    Dual Core for most things is spectacular. The new E8500 is a bad mofo.

    This seem completely irrelavent, since REVIT is an Architecture product, and I know nothing about it. I believe I said Inventor, anyhow I design WWTP and the CAD group lays them out, using Inventor, not autocad.
