Intel to release Quad core 45 Q9400

Roadmap: 6MB cache at 2.66GHz


Once it becomes available Quad Core 2 quad Q9450 has every chance to become a great seller. It is currently listed for around €270, but it is impossible to get one. Intel is still struggling to get enough quad and dual 45nm cores, especially in the desktop segment and this won’t get much better in Q1.  

Quad core, Yorkfield 45nm based Core 2 quad Q 9450 works at 2.66GHz, has 12MB of cache memory works with FSB 1333.

The new, more affordable Core 2 quad Q9400 will work at the same 2.66GHz speed but it will have its cache size cut down to 6MB. Intel also plans Core 2 Duo Q9300 again with 6MB of cache and 2.5GHz speed.

They sound really good and SSE4.1 will speed up a thing or two, and we expect some great overclocking scores from these new cores.
