Intels Core 2 Quad Q9300 is the start of its Q9xxx line of four core processors, and runs at 2.5 GHz.That puts it around 7% behind the 2.66 GHz of the next model up, the Q9400, but when we measured it, we found the performance difference to be closer...

Intel’s Core 2 Q9300 processor is fabricated using the 45nm Penryn process that we first saw in Bennys review of the , which is a lovely CPU if you dont mind forking out £480. Thankfullly, the Penryn process is also used in more down-to-earth...

As a comparison to the existing quad core Intel CPUs, there really is not much of a comparison. The Q9300 just barely performs better than the Q6600 in the comparison field of processors. In many ways, it is handicapped by the lower amount of L2...

As our benchmark results and power consumption tests have shown, Intel’s Core 2 Quad Q9300 represents a solid upgrade over the Core 2 Quad Q6600, which we’ve come to know and love. Even though the Q9300 has a decreased cache size and only...

The Core 2 Quad Q9300 costs £56 more than Intels cheapest quad-core CPU, the Core 2 Quad Q6600. Its clearly the runt of new litter too, with its 6MB cache (half the amount of the other 45m CPUs) and low clock speeds. Its only marginally faster at...

In our recent review of the Phenom X4 9850, I said AMD had a small window of opportunity with the Phenom thanks to the slow rollout of Intels 45nm desktop processors. With arrival of the Core 2 Quad Q9300 at multiple online vendors, that window is...

The new quad-core Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor priced at $266 should be at least as demanded as its predecessor, Core 2 Quad Q6600. Being Intel’s cheapest quad-core processor built using the latest production process, this newcomer has a number of...

U odnosu na Core 2 Quad Q6600, Q9300 donosi poboljšanja u performansama, podršku za SSE 4.1 set instrukcija te napredniji proizvodni proces što automatski znači nižu potrošnja i zagrijavanje. Nedostatak u ovom slučaju...

Intels firekernede cpuer har efterhånden fået et godt ry. På trods af at det ikke er en ægte quadcore, men blot to dualcore-chips klistret sammen, formår Intel alligevel i kraft af Core-teknikken at holde et solidt forspring ned til forfølgerne....

Beklager AMD, men dette duger ikke. I hvert fall ikke i kampen mot Intels firekjerner. Den hvasseste firekjernen i Phenom-serien må bite i gresset for den tregeste firekjernen fra Intels nye 9xxx-serie. Det tyder ikke bra. Likevel, Phenom-prosessoren...
