Cheap Quad Cores: AMD X4 9600 €99 and Intel Q6600 €126
AMD is the first to drop under the magic €100 mark, selling its Phenom X4 9600 for a mere €99. This is a B2 stepping 2.3GHz part, but nonetheless the price is impressive. For €25 less, you'll get one core less as the X3 8450 clocked at 2.1GHz now costs just €73.90.
Intel is offering its legendary Q6600 for as little as €128 these days and the Q6700 for €158. If you're after new 45nm parts you won't spend a fortune either. The 2.5GHz Q9300 costs €185, while Intel's latest addition to its quad core family, the Q8200 is listed at €177 but it will probably end up even cheaper once it becomes available.
