Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Processor

Hot Hardware has taken a close look at the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Processor. This $270 chip is the replacement for the Q6600: the most popular member of intel’s product line in terms of speed compared to value.

Here’s what they thought of it:

“We would recommend this chip for those who want an inexpensive and low-power quad-core option for desktop or workstation usage. For gamers, we would recommend opting for a higher-clock speed dual-core model like the Core 2 Duo E8500, which can deliver better stock performance compared to the Q9300 in a gaming environment. If you want quad-core and top-notch gaming performance, we would recommend opting for one of Intel’s higher-end quad-core models with a full 12 MB of cache, like the Q9450 and up.”
