FUD Zilla writes Intel's Core 2 Quad Q9450 should become a great seller once there's enough quantity available.
Quad core, Yorkfield 45nm based Core 2 quad Q 9450 works at 2.66GHz, has 12MB of cache memory works with FSB 1333.
The new, more affordable Core 2 quad Q9400 will work at the same 2.66GHz speed but it will have its cache size cut down to 6MB. Intel also plans Core 2 Duo Q9300 again with 6MB of cache and 2.5GHz speed.
They sound really good and SSE4.1 will speed up a thing or two and we expect some great overclocking scores from these new cores.
