Default Intel Q6600 Still Very Popular

A mainstream quad core is one of the best ideas that Intel had and 65nm Core 2 Quad Q6600 is still the most popular quad core around. The prices have went down and even with 45nm quad cores as competition Intel is selling Q6600 like hot cakes. This CPU is 2.4GHz Kentsfiend core and with an average price of 140 it is still the primary choice of many.

The 45nm based quad core codenamed Yorkfield in its Q9300 iteration sells for slightly over 200 but is not even close to being as popular as Q6600.

When the Q9300 carries a near 50% price premium over here (AU$289 v AU$199) but without a 50% performance gain, why wouldn't you choose the older Q6600?

Another 'state the obvious' Fudzilla article I'm afraid

difference here is smaller but also there, issue is the Q6600 being phased out, the Q9300 is in stock, the Q6600 you have to wait for.

Q9300 vs Q6600 is a popular item, XBitlabs has a review of that one


clock for clock the Q9300 is faster, and with 45nm cooler , lower power usage, and better OC.

but not worth the premium

OC your E6400 to 2.8~3.2Ghz and you're all future-proofed
Quad Cores have no place in desktop PC at this point in time, no daily used application takes advantage of the extra 2 cores, you're better of with dual core at higher clock speeds.

if you want to future proof, wait until Q1 2009 then see what's available

good for intel, the Q6600 is an excellent way to sell 65nm capacity

Spot on, unless you do a reasonable amount of video encoding etc.

they will drive down price of current gen, make early adapters sell their 45nm quad cores, and will give you the opportunity to buy them for much less

Better OC? You must be joking.

not really no. cooler running makes for average higher OC with stock cooling.
