Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 Review

Posted on 2008-03-14 22:49:36 by Thomas De Maesschalck

Intel is at it again. After the recent launch of its first 45nm and so far most extreme CPU, the QX9650, it?s now time for the QX9770. The logic behind the model numbering is questionable, but what?s new with this model is 400MHz FSB, which thanks to Intel's quadruple bus give us an effective transfer rate corresponding to 1600MHz. This is denoted by the third number; 9770. The frequency has also increased to 3.2GHz (8x400), which is denoted by the second number; 9770.

If this came at the same 999 price point it would have a chance. As it is, while it's a good chip, it comes too late and too close to the Nehalem (which will be far better), and at a price point that is too high for being so close to the next product.

Too bad really, because otherwise it's a pretty good chip.
