I'm using the amd64 version of FreeBSD for an HP Pavillion using an
Intel Core 2 Quad processor (Q6600).
So far it's doing fine with the processor. There are some driver
problems, for instance no sound. However, as I'm using this machine as
a compute server, I'm ignoring those limitations. I ran some parallel
computation problem on it and got good performance out of it.
