Looks pretty sweet! Wanna get one for me too? Please!!!
Let us know how it works out for you.
just curiosity since my chip isn't in production any longer.
What is the difference between the 9550 and the 9450 that I have besides stock clock? Or isn't there?
OH yeah that is a given man this will be the first place that get's the scoop .
Man I called to see if they got the order all stacked and packed they still haven't so I guess I have to play the Fing waiting game and maybe get it Friday GOD I hate that shit !
it's worse when they ship from the warehouse that is NOT closest to you. I ordered a new sound card and mouse on monday, expected to get it Tuesday night from the Memphis warehouse but it shipped from Cali and won't be here 'till tomorrow. I had off today and was going to play!
It has been SHIPPED !!!
It will be hear ( overnight shipping ) tomorrow !!! PLAY TIME !!
Maybe I am being to optamistic but from what I have seen many are getting 4.0GHz easy !!! Boy I can hardly wait to see just how fast this CPU is !!
Fast... Better then the Q6600. Temp wise.
The Q6600 is a nice CPU I know but come on it has it's limit's no SSE4 . 65NM ( not 45)
L2 Cache 2x 4 MB slow stock speed as well 2.4GHz takes a ton of energy to get it up there . Been around a long time . so upgrading to this Q9550 should give me some more speed , fun and power !
very nice. I am jealous. I want my quad core setup to come now! Where is the 945 dammit!!
Well I stopped waiting for AMD not only to catch up but to put out !
you know the Q9650 are $333.99 free s/h how much did the Q9550 com out to ?
307 and well that is all I had no more at all that is it ! all the cash I had went into this that is all I had so yeah I had to go with this one .
well give her hell
I am sure going to try , I will give it my all I just hope that it has a lot to give me . I am so excited !
trickson, you are totally obsessed with that chip dude
Have fun with it. I hope to get one of them 45 nm quads as well when the prices hit below 250
Well it is a 45nm CPU with more cache and more stock speed . So in theory I should get way better temps I should be able to get better OC as well dude to the low heat and power requirements .Yes I can not wait to get it and over night shipping means it should be here in the morning .
Can you feel it ? I can the excitement of a new Quad core CPU it is coming very soon now not long to wait now ...
you'll hit 4.0. I did a 3.5ghz from stock overclock without even changing my voltage when I had one.
OH man I am so excited hitting 4.0GHz would be a dream come true for me ! and it is so close to being here I am beside myself now !
Only a 200MHz stock speed increase. Not much really.
From what the Q6600 speed ? well you also need to take into account the other things as well like the instruction sets SSE4 the higher Cache 12MB the smaller die 45NM and well the over all speed from all that is going to be noticeable since I can see that the Q9550 is killing mine and mine has a hard time being stable at really high speeds even the 3.7GHz is a bit unstable . So over all I will be getting more speed and a better CPU .
Yes. I hated the Q6600, crap overclocker.
Now I am not say that but it has proven to be some what of a challenge to over clock on both the 680i and 750i mobo getting past 3.6GHz was and is hard and the Vcore it needs a ton to keep stable . all in all a great CPU IMHO the Q6600 will live on that is for sure .
NICE!!! I was planning to get one of these chips myself with the recent price cuts n what not. but price over here in the EU are still over 200.GBP Might see if it comes down a little more. still once overclocked it should perform better or close to an i7 gen system the 12Mb cache is going to make swiss cheese out of boot up/load times. which also makes it not bad to also run in a server if you ever do choose to upgrade.
let me know how the overclocking goes.
Oh I will be posting all kinds of things on this new CPU of mine .
