    Prices of Intel 45nm desktop CPUs revealed

    The Conroe (and Kentsfields) have taken the performance crown from AMD and are currently on a roll but these will not be battling AMD's upcoming Phenom processors as Intel is preparing the new 45nm-built Yorkfield and Wolfdale CPUs. The models ready to be rolled out in Q4 2007 and Q1 2008 have already been revealed but what was unknown was the sum Intel will want for its updated line-up. Now, with the exception of the lonely dual-core E8300, the rest of the 45nm pack is priced and can already start causing AMD an extended headache.

    In short, the most expensive 45nm desktop part will of course be the quad-core Extreme QX9650, with an asking price of $999. The rest of the quads will be priced from $530 (Q9550) to just $266 for the Q9300 that will unfortunately have only 6MB of L2 cache.

    The dual-core processors will start off from where the Q9300 ends and will have the 3.16GHz E8500 costing $266. The 45nm line-up ends with the E8200 that costs just $163. And the war continues. The full list of prices (in 1000-unit tray quantities) can be found just below.

    Quad core not much use for games ... plus I don't OC so 2.5GHz will be slower than 3.16GHz.

    Doubt so unless u get on-line.

    If not, Shops in SLS is well known of jacking up the price due to 7%GST, NETS, PUB Bill goes up, rental goes up and bla...bla...bla

    That was the price of the E6600 at the point of time when it was still at the USD316 price bracket.

    Crysis will benefit greatly from a quad core!
    Go with quad, it's time to go forward...

    And the Q9450 is attractive, although I do with the Q9550 was a bit cheaper, since I've already got a PD 2.8
    I was hoping to get a higher clocked quad even if it's just 30MHz faster.


    Q9450 *drool*
    Q9550 *drrrooolllllssssss*

    Aiya....future-proof yourself la. You want to live for the moment or for the future (LOL, sound like what PAP will say). True, most current games won't utilize quad-core, but the trend is moving towards quad mah. Most of the big games launching will cater towards the moving trend. Anyways, future games also becoming more graphics card-intensive than processor-intensive...so as long got quad, should be safe....within 1 1/2 yrs. LOL! Better to bang more on graphics card.

    Anyways, Q9450 for me!!!
