Q9300, 2.50GHz with 6MB of memory


Last Friday we mentioned that
the lowest priced Core 2 Quad Q9450, 12MB quad core processor will sell for US$319. Core 2 Quad Q9450 works at 4x2.66 and Intel plans to sell its Core 2 Quad Q9300 clocked at 2.50GHz with memory cut down to 6MB for US$270.

This is the CPU that should replace Q6600 with its 2.40GHz clock and 8MB cache memory, with FSB 1066MHz that is currently priced at about $270. Core 2 Quad Q9300 is a 45nanometer CPU and will have the memory size cut down from 12MB to 6MB, but this should not affect most of the tasks CPUs do.

The Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor also comes with faster FSB 1333MHz and we believe that it should end up significantly faster than the current sweet spot Q6600.

Intel will launch Q9300 and Q9450 in January.
