5 out of 5 eggs SOOOOO nice to have a quad core! 12/01/2011

This review is from: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.83 GHz LGA 775 95W BX80569Q9550 Desktop Processor

Pros:

Quad core. 12mb L2. 1333 FSB. 45nm.

Cons:

No hyper-threading, it's not an i7/i5, price is a bit steep for older tech.

Other Thoughts:

I struggled between upgrading the mobo & cpu to the i7 series, but I couldn't justify the money spent. So I looked for alternatives, and found this cpu. Price was a little steep but I figured what the heck it was still only 1/4 the costs of upgrading everything to fit an i7.

While I'm glad I did, I sure wish it would have had hyper-threading. Then again play wise in games, movies, & other high end graphical applications, music creation, ALL run so smoothly.

I choose not to overclock my equipment. So I cannot offer any insight into this cpu being a good OC option.
