Overclocking, Power Consumption
We found the QX9650 to consume 23% less power when compared to the QX6850. In fact the QX9650 used 7% less power than the Q6600 which carries 4MB less of cache and operates 600MHz slower. We also saw the QX9650 using only 12% more power than the X6800 despite featuring a similar operating frequency and two more cores! So we can safely say that the efficiency of the QX9650 (and the Penryn architecture) is by far the best we have seen out of any Core 2 processor thus far.
