Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 and Massive Price Cuts - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
Everyone seems to be stuck on wether or not your specific app is using one, two, or more cores. What about the fact that most of us, at least me anyway, like to have like 6 things running at one time. I want to be able to encode that movie in the background while I am burning another one and have my email open and my IM and ....

But we all know that 4 is better than 2 and somehow one must have 4 because they're available whether or not it's necessary but since that Quad-Cores are going to be multi-tasking monsters, why not? Best bet will be a Q6600.

In the end, multi-tasking with 4 cores (Q6600 for example) it'd be much better, and "IF" the applications you will multi-task with? Are going to take full advantage of 2 cores, whereas multi-tasking with 2 cores (E6600 for example), that leaves the apps only running under 1 core.

Those price cuts are sure nice. But I ain't getting any new CPUs.
Would you please fill out your system specs?
