From Hot Hardware:

To say this year has been a bit of a whirl-wind adventure would be an immense understatement.  We've seen Intel move from a back-seat position versus the Athlon 64 X2 with their Pentium D architecture, to commanding virtually all of the lime-light as of late with Core 2 Duo, not to mention running away with nearly all of the performance benchmark wins. If 2006 was the year of the dual-core CPU, then Intel left its mark deep in PC processor history as probably the biggest come-back story the industry has ever seen.  Core 2 Duo's steep volume ramp in the market was also indicative of the success of the new processor, which was marked as the strongest in the company's history.  Speaking of which, "history" seems to be a recurring theme here. If Intel left their mark on the year of the dual-core processor, they're about to literally usher in the year of the multi-core Desktop system with the new Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor we have on our test bench today.  History in the making?  Perhaps.  But that's what cutting-edge semiconductor technology is all about -- moving forward at a relentless pace, never pausing to look back.
