Default I heard a rumor on newegg is it true?

Intel Pentium D 960 can be compared to e6600 in terms of benchmarks as they have similar speeds? cuz a reviewer of PD says: Newegg.com - Intel Pentium D 960 Presler 3.6GHz 2 x 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

don't no if i want to believe him or not.... click customer reviewers and read the top review:

comparable to Duo E6700

Tech Level: high - Ownership: 1 month to 1 year
Pros: I have Core 2 Duo E6700 on my other computer and i can hardly notice the difference between them.
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: Buy it. You won't be disappointed. I think it is the same as Core 2 Duo processors. They all use the same technology 60 nm.

A pentium D can't even touch an AMD X2 let alone a frickin E6600 C2D....ghz mean very little.
