  • Excerpt: If you're looking for top speed, the QX9650 is unmatched, but you'll need to have programs that can use it to its full potential.
  • Pros: Fastest consumer CPU yet, Runs cool, SSE4 instruction set can dramatically speed apps that support it
  • Cons: Expensive, Few apps support four cores (and even fewer support SSE4)

Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650: en avant le 45nm !

Clubic
20 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Arrivés au terme de cet article et passé les pages de performances, il faudrait être bien difficile pour ne pas saluer positivement l'arrivée du Penryn. Alors que la dernière transition en terme de procédé de fabrication avait laissé chez Intel de biens mauvais souvenirs, le passage du 65 nm au 45 nm se fait à l'inverse sans accrocs.
  • Pros: Gain de performances à fréquence égale, Finesse de gravure 45nm, Large quantité de cache, Instructions SSE4
  • Cons: Prix astronomique, FSB limité à 1333 MHz, Que 3 GHz ?!
