Q9550 and Q9450 benched
WE DON'T KNOW how we missed it (well, we do – it was published on 9800GTX launch day), but over the weekend our unrelenting search for reviews led us to this article here. Hardware Zone has an article – exclusive as far as we can tell – of Intel’s Q9550 and Q9450 CPUs. These little ones are made of the same stuff as the “extreme edition” QX9650 – a Yorkfield at heart – however, a QX9650 will run you almost twice as expensive as the younger Q9550. Regardless of what Intel calls them, they are identical in every aspect, except the slightly slower clock speed – and if you consider the implications of the TDP in the bigger picture, the QX9550 seems to be an excellent proposal. We wonder how well it’d overclock? (src: TheInq)
