The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 Processor
When it comes to Intel processors things are pretty quiet as nothing new has been recently released and a price change hasn't happened in months. This year we have reviewed the Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor, which is aimed at the entry level quad-core market, and fastest mainstream quad-core processor: the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 processor. Priced at $169.99 and $274.99, respectively, both are fast processors, but there is a processor available that is priced between these that could be right for your next system. At $229.99 the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 has four processing cores running at 2.66GHz, 6MB of shared L2 cache and a 1333MHz Front Side Bus (FSB).
The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 was released in the Fall of 2008 and has manufacturing availability for 7+ years, which means this processor will be an important one for the benchmark charts. The Q9400 has a Thermal Design Power (TDP) rating of 95W, which is on par with the other desktop quad-core processors.

The processor I have in my hands today is an R0 stepping with the sSpec number SLB6B. According to Intel the core voltage on this processor is 0.850v - 1.3625v, but as you can see above it was running at a core voltage of 1.192v on the ASUS motherboard.

Let's take a look at the benchmarks to see how the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 does.
God is busy right now. may i help you?
