Please see the below specs, one based on T3400 and other on T3500
The price diff. is about $400

For those who already tested the new intel processor, the question is, how fast the T3500 (W3503 ) compared to the T3400 (e8400)? I tried to find W3503 spec from Intel but couldn't find it? Not sure if the name is corrected???

I guess DELL tested very hard on FX580; however, I'm just wondreing if any of you here had a chance to play with it?
Is it worth to spend $400 more for the T3500???

Thx, Chris
