Q9450 vs Q6600 STOCKSPEED - Page 4

post #31 of 40
Why would Intel gimp a CPU that has unbelievable potential like the Q9450? I guess Intel was getting annoyed with us overclockers gettting a Q6600 and making them perform like the Extreme models without paying for it. Now it seems if you want a decent multiplier you're going to have to pay more for it.

Am I the only one who noticed that they ran the tests at stock speed like the title said?
that means the q6600 was at 2.4 and the q9450 was at 2.66, thats an advantage of 266mhz... obviously these things are going to score better in tests....

it was a dumb way to test it either way, the Q6600 is still the better buy considering the prices of the Q9450 right now ($370 range).

they'll clock similarly but solely due to chipset constraints

q9450 will still have a clock for clock advantage and will run cooler.

Actually i am running stock right now.
And i do not have any clue about how to go about tweaking the ballistix.
especially since i have

The Q9450 will be cooler, and more efficient (faster) at equivilant speeds. The 45nm chips have improved instruction sets. However, this difference isn't incredibly significant, and the Q6600 will likely overclock better. You likely won't need a huge heatsink for air, or water cooling to OC the Q9450 a bit though.

well if anyone one wants and has a comparible system to mine but has a q6600 I would be willing to run some benchmarks here so we can have some real comparison.

*edit* uh. i can't find that forum thingy about the 3.6 ghz and 3.7 ghz, i guess we'll have to wait a few more days for the benchmark results to be posted o_o

let me get this right your saying at stock speeds the q6600 is faster due to it's cache size?

haha, yea i just did quick read on them. Guess you are right. I thought tracers were more a "carefully handpicked to OC" better version.
