The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 was a desktop processor with 4 cores, launched in March 2008. It is part of the Core 2 Quad lineup, using the Yorkfield architecture with Socket 775. Core 2 Quad Q9550 has 12MB of L2 cache and operates at 2.833 GHz. Intel is making the Core 2 Quad Q9550 on a 45 nm production node using 820 million transistors. The multiplier is locked on Core 2 Quad Q9550, which limits its overclocking potential.
With a TDP of 95 W, the Core 2 Quad Q9550 consumes a good deal of power, so decent cooling is needed. Intel's processor supports DDR1, DDR2 and DDR3 memory with adual-channel interface. For communication with other components in the computer, Core 2 Quad Q9550 uses a PCI-Express Gen 2 connection. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Core 2 Quad Q9550, which greatly improves virtual machine performance.
