  1. Holy! Wow! Hope we see reviews soon. :) first post.
  2. That's one cheap processor! -Sarcasm
  3. What do the sse4 instructions bring exactly?

    If a program is written for sse4 (i.e. video rendering) then it will run something like 100% faster on this chip then it would on a non sse4 chip. That's pretty much laymans terms, someone can probably offer a more technical one.
  5. In a year it will be down around $300, so I might wait a while <smile>
  6. Hmm how come it says its the Yorkfield?

    Ohh and here is a review of that chip.. http://www.guru3d.com/article/processor/471/
  7. Waiting one year! That thing cost more than my box. It probably flies though.
  8. Nah the price will probably never fall down below $1000. It's an extreme edition after all.
  9. marike,

    Penryn is the core, Yorkfield means the quad core Penryn, and wolfdale means the dual core Penryn.

    Thus, as quoted form Wiki,

    Wolfdale will be the desktop version of Penryn, with two cores sharing 6 MiB of L2 cache. Yorkfield will feature a dual-die quad core design with two unified level-two (L2) caches. It is also expected to feature 1333 MHz FSB and be compatible with the Bearlake[41] chipset. These processors are expected to become available in late 2007 and early 2008, and the platform will support DDR3 and have a 1333 MHz FSB. The first Yorkfield processor was released on 11 November 2007, while more are still to be realeased, and Wolfdale is set to be released sometime in January 2008.[42] At the Intel Developer Forum 2007, a Yorkfield processor was compared with a Kentsfield processor.[43][44]
  10. DAMN!!! THAT'S A CRAZY @$$ PRICE lmao
  11. The Penryn was reviewed here on Tom's October 29th in the Following Topic - Intel's 45 nm Penryn CPU: 4 GHz Air Cooled - http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/10/29/intel_penryn_4ghz_with_air_cooling/index.html

    Less expensive models named Q9550 (2.83Ghz - 12Mb Cache), Q9450 (2.66Ghz - 12Mb Cache) and Q9300(2.5Ghz - 8Mb Cache) are projected to be released Q1 2008. See page 17.

    Comp :sol:
  12. Love the price. I'll bet any money that some people on this forum have already ordered it
  13. That's just $60.00 more than I Paid for my QX6850 4 months ago. The prices on the extreme models never seem to drop very much. I just couldn't wait.
  14. The Q9450 when released, is expected to be the price equivalent of the Q6600.
  15. Not sure where the "one year warranty" comes from, Intel provides a 3 year warranty on ALL retail box processors: http://cache-www.intel.com/cd/00/00/05/03/50372_50372.pdf

    Perhaps these are OEM chips? If so, that one year warranty isn't coming from Intel, it's from Tiger Direct (Intel does not warrant OEM processors).

    * Not speaking for Intel Corp *
  16. ooo who is going to be the first confirmed on the site to order?
  17. The site clearly state the QX9650 is OEM and the 12 month warranty is towards the bottom.

    Extreme processors will always be in the stratosphere. Don't expect the price to drop below $1,000.
  18. Hey, at least it costs less than my 26" NEC LCD2690WUXi.
  19. Will it work in my Barton motherboard? I've been looking to upgrade. :pt1cable:
  20. Check out Dailytech hardware reviews on the QX9650. Click on the Tweaktown link. An AMD X2 6000 actually beat the top performing QX9650 in Everest read-write.
  21. i just bought 2! one for my computer one for a paperweight.

    This is normal. AMD will win any memory benchmark right now, due to their IMC.
  23. I'm only guessing that Intel does not want to be outdone, even when it comes to memory bandwidth. That could be why they're coming out with "Quickpath", their version of an on chip memory controller for Nehalem.
  24. Quickpath is an interconnect - kind of like a next-gen HT. An IMC will give Intel greater flexibility, especially with multisocket designs. I don't think they care about getting beat by AMD in this benchmark, as it only applies to very few scientific server apps, but they do need an IMC in the future, as only so many cores can communicate through the FSB.
  25. Oops, got confuzed by that one

    Yes it will!! You just have to trim the edges with a dremel to make it fit the socket!!
  27. Geesh, first place I've seen who has them for sale. Besides Alienware...shipdate 28th december.

    Well I hope this is not a paper launch like AMD did with barcelona, brisbane, and 4X4...well the 4X4 was a joke but still.
  29. Remember that Intel doesn't typically do paper launches. That's more of AMD's arena.
  30. Limited launches ARE paper launches, they just get more press.
  31. What is a paper launch?
  32. It is when a product announces a new product as being available on a particular date, but in reality there are not any really available or the numbers are so low as to be virtually not obtainable.

    This is what AMD did with the "Barcelona" chips.
    They announced 1.7, 1.8, and 1.9ghz models.

    However very few of any of these chips were made available.
    Few hardware vendors which announced Barcelona servers are actually able to even advertise these servers because they cannot get chips.
    This includes the big guys like IBM.

    And this was for a product that was launched about 2 months ago.
