Q6600 vs. Q9300 - Page 6

post #51 of 60
the real question is q6700 vs q9450, the recent q6600's have been getting crappy clocks and q9300's suck(IMO for multiple reasons) ^_^

If money isn't a problem go to q9450, no doubt for me

Just goes to show you that not everything on paper adds up. People in the auto racing world know this best. The most HP isn't always the fastest...

Nice article, however from what I have read MOST q9300's dont clock that high. Most q6600's do clock to 3.6ghz fairly easily with proper cooling. Plus the $50 -$60 price difference doesnt justify the performance gap. Best bang for the buck overall will be the q6600. It has more l2 cache and overclocks easier.

I did not know that - guess you have nothing to worry about so long as you buy it new

Again - Good luck

Check out http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu...d-q9300_4.html for a good comparison. The summary: "The new Core 2 Quad Q9300 is definitely a great product, but only until you get to overclocking. From the overclocking prospective we have to be more careful with our verdict and would call it an interesting but maybe not the most optimal choice."

Looking at that link, the Q9300 overclocked to 3.5 GHz performed as well or better than than Q6600 overclocked to 3.6 GHz in most tests. On top of that, it consumes far less power meaning less heat.

I believe prices will drop on Q9xxx processors pretty soon. From my stance, the extra dimes you spend on the Q9300 might not get you significantly better performance, but you get a less power-hungry processor.

At the end of the day, the numbers don't lie: the Q9300 is slightly superior to the Q6600.

If I had a Q6600 I would OC it same % as this Q9300 and compare them but don't have one or know anyone near me who does.

Damn!

7.5x Multi!

Intel knew what they were doing when they laser locked that.

Yeah the multi sucks on this thing. My rationale for buying this is that it will hold me over till the 9550/9650 come to a decent price. Plus I didn't want to spend for the Q9550 when I had never OC'd a quad or C2D. But what I really should have done was just spent the extra $ and got the Q9450 and ditch the upgrading idea till after Nehalem.

The 7.5 multi only keeps it from reaching 4.0 GHz under any circumstances. I guess with a really good motherboard, you might be able to get the necessary 533-MHz FSB but I highly doubt it. Still, a 3.5 GHz overclock isn't that bad. That article compares it to the Q6600 overclocked to 3.6 GHz and the Penryn wins almost every comparison test, some by a little and others by more. Like I said earlier, I don't think you're really paying for the extra performance because it is pretty close to negligible. You are paying for a cooler, less power-hungry processor. Maybe people don't care about power consumption or heat and will get a Q6600. Maybe they do and get a Q9300. I see this as a win-win situation. Depending on its price, the Q9400 might become the budget quad champion. There's no way it will cost more than a Q9450 and I can't see half the L2 cache inhibiting the chip too much.
