Hello,


I would just like to know why people are getting these new CPUs. why are they better than anything else like Quads?? What are the differences?

I have a q9550 @ 3.0ghz and am just wondering because I don't see the big deal with them. They use 4 cores like current Core 2 Quads?? Correct?

So whats the big deal?

Thanks.

Quad cores, Six Cores and Eight cores are a lot faster and more useful for multitasking.
