Core 2 Duo E5200
Core 2 Quad Q8200


Core 2 Duo E5200, 2500MHz, 2048 KiB L2 Cache, 800 MT/s, 12.5x Multi,
Technology: 45nm
Release Date: Third Quarter 2008
Release Price: $84USD (£50 - £60GBP)
Over clock-ability
800 / 4 = 200 fsb x 12.5 = 2500MHz
1066 / 4 = 266.5 fsb x 12.5 = 3331.25MHz
1333 / 4 = 333.3 fsb x 12.5 = 4166.25MHz
1400 / 4 = 350 fsb x 12.5 = 4375MHz
1500 / 4 = 375 fsb x 12.5 = 4687.5MHz
1600 / 4 = 400 fsb x 12.5 = 5000MHz (100% OC)

Lets compare it to a E7200

E7200 stock
2533.17MHz
1066.6 FSB
3MiB L2

E5200 Over clocked (1066)
3331.25MHz
1066.6 FSB
2MiB L2

E5200 working at 1066 QDR will out perform a E7200 at Stock

E7200 Super Over clock (1500)
3562.5MHz

E5200 Super Over clock (1333)
4166.25MHz

It looks like the E5200 is going to be an OVERCLOCKING MONSTER only thing letting it down is the 2MiB Shared L2 Cache

Core 2 Quad Q8200, 2333MHz, 2 x 2048KiB L2 Cache, 1333 MT/s, 7x Multi
Technology: 45nm
Release Date: Third Quarter 2008-07-03
Release Price: $203USD (£110 - £120GBP)
Over clock-ability
1333 / 4 = 333.3 x 7 = 2332.75MHz
1400 / 4 = 350 x 7 = 2450MHz
1500 / 4 = 375 x 7 = 2625MHz
1600 / 4 = 400 x 7 = 2800MHz
1700 / 4 = 425 x 7 = 2975MHz
1900 / 4 = 475 x 7 = 3325MHz

Let compare it to a Q6600 Release Price: $224USD

Q6600
2400MHz
1066.6 FSB
4MiB x2

Q8200
2332.75MHz
1333.3 FSB
2MiB x2

Q6600 out performs the Q8200 at stock

Q6600 @ 1333.3 = 2999.99MHz
Q8200 @ 1333.3 = 2332.75MHz

Q6600 @ 1400 = 3150MHz
Q8200 @ 1400 = 2450MHz

Super Over Clock
Q6600 @ 1600 = 3600MHz
Q8200 @ 1600 = 2800MHz
There is an 800MHz difference between the Q6600 and Q8200 over clocked to 1600QDR

Compare Release Price
Q6600 = $224USD
Q8200 = $203USD
There is only a $21USD difference

I would say the only thing the Q8200 has going for it is the 45nm Technology

_____________

By the looks of thing if you are a over clocker I would get a E5200 its going to be a great Over clocking chip with it’s 12.5 Multi.

I would avoid the Q8200 unless you are office based and just use simple apps like Excel and stuff. I would purchase a Q6600 for an extra $21USD I know it’s the old technology but my god it can out perform the Q8200

The E7200 gets my vote. You can reach 3.8-4.0GHz and its only $130.

Look at the E5200 it can reach 4+GHz with 1333.3 QDR and most motherboards can handle that easierly

Another good thing is you can lower the multi to 11 and you'll still out perform the E7200 at 1066QDR

Anything with a multi of 9 or better will be OK...

But I doubt any will really be any kind of "beast"

If you want to buy into the smaller dye, less power, more cache than the E5200/Q8200 will be OK

The E5200 with 12.5 Multi is the highest Multi i have seen for a while on a locked CPU. It will be like an extreme with the multi you hardly see any Extreme CPU go over 12x so this is a beast for $84USD

E5200 depending on the price.
Just the the stock specs also:
7200 = 3MB cache 1066 fsb 45nm
5000 = 2MB cache 800 fsb 45nm
2000 = 1MB cache 800 fsb 65nm

The E5200 is only going to be $84USD when it is released. The price for both the E5200 and the Q8200 is in the first post
