    German hardware site PCGH had the opportunity to benchmark the upcoming Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor through various performance benchmarks. The 45nm Core 2 Quad Q9300 CPU is yet to be relased and features 2,5GHz (333x7.5) clock speed, 6MB L2 shared cache and only 1.2V default voltage. See all the tests here.

    Simulated.

    Must've disabled one or two of the cores.

    The simulated X2's and X3's are a poor performing bunch.

    But if there as cheap as potato chips ~$50 lol, count me in :D

    How come they say MHz, not GHz?

    Because for instance 3500MHz is roughly 3.5GHz. 2500MHz is roughly 2.5GHz, etc, etc.

    Well, the QX9650 says 3.000 MHz, when I assume it should be 3.000 GHz.

    Well, we can clearly see where the extra 4 threads brought by HyperThreading make a difference.

    Uh I thought they were bringing back hyperthreading with nehlam, not penryn.

    brutally at that.. I really dont think AMD can survive much longer if they dont step up and release some good chips :( I cant even imagine how high intels prices would go if there wasnt a competitor

    They would produce a new chip every 5 years for 1000$. :shadedshu

    Yeah, but it doesn't say 3000, it says 3.000, i.e. 3 with 3 significant zeroes following the decimal point.

    I know it doesn't matter, but I think it's just kind of funny to think of any processor released within the last decade would operate at only 3 MHz. maybe those are just really difficult-to-see commas.

    It' so odd the way the CPU market is going. Before we're used to the performance one new core gives us, we get another crazy performance boost. I find myself wishing it would slow down soon. :laugh:

    Maybe that's because they're German - they write 3 thousand as 3.000 and 3 point zero as 3,0. French do this as well as a few other Eu countries.

    Comma is a deciamal seperator.
    Most English-speaking countries use a period tho, no idea why.
