Closed E6750 vs Q8300 Tags: CPUs Performance Last response: November 11, 2010 11:28 AM in CPUs Share senorrock November 4, 2010 3:11:06 AM I currently have an E6750 and I was wondering if I would see a big performance boost if I upgraded to the Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 (Yorkfield 2.5GHz 4MB L2 Cache). Basically is it performance boost going to be worth the $150 to buy it.
