Intel Core 2 Q9300 - worthy Q6600 replacement?

Posted on Tuesday, February 12 2008 @ 00:26:19 CET by

X-bit Labs has taken a closer look at the Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor from Intel which will replace the Q6600 processor:
At the same time, the new Yorkfield processors selling under Core 2 Quad Q9000 series brand name will hardly enjoy as much demand as their E8000 counterparts. These CPUs will be relatively expensive, their official prices will start at $266 – the top price point for dual-core Core 2 Duo. However, although quad-core processors haven’t been any cheaper before, they are becoming popular very rapidly, mostly thanks to the youngest model in the lineup – the Core 2 Quad Q6600. When Yorkfield will actually come out, 45nm quad-core Core 2 Quad Q9300 will also be offered at about the same price and with the time it will replace its predecessor completely. Of course, this model from the refreshed Core 2 Quad family will become the most interesting solution.
Check it out over here. This new processor will be launched at the same price of the Q6600 and according to the reviewer it offers about 7% more performance while cutting the power consumption by up to 30W. One of the only bad things about the Q9300 is its low multiplier which makes overclocking harder than on the Q6600.
