I've preordered mine too, and last thing that i heard was mid March. :(

Yes, March is the projected release date. Just hang tight until then and avoid the temptation of an E8400 like I am. :)

Hey guys, what is the price in U.S. currency?

I'm already avoiding too good. :cool:

Intel wants the Q9450 be released and priced at $316 USD, but some company would sell it for a bit more. Many of them are under $400 USD.

Im paying 220 (426.828 USD) .:headexplode:

I skipped the Q6600 so I dont mind so much. + This is the last CPU I will ever need ;)

Are you sure? But wow, that's a lot. $426. I don't wanna pay THAT much.

But according to my APPLES TO ORANGES, it shows me $406? Unless, it's because of dollar values dropping so it's $426 USD?

220.00 GBP = 427.255 USD
United Kingdom Pounds United States Dollars
1 GBP = 1.94207 USD 1 USD = 0.514915 GBP


Besides that, it's not very smart to get this pricey cpu over the q6600 - it has a higher fsb and thus clearly worse oc ability.

Intel's prices are for resellers in quantities of 1000, so they have to turn around and then make a profit on that, taking into considering staffing costs, warehouse leases, etc. That makes up for the price premium over Intel's estimates.

I'm not sure I agree with Lenin. The power consumption is noticeably lower, and with any decent overclocking motherboard you'll be doing 3.6GHz easily. Not many Q6600s can do 3.6GHz without crazy voltage increases or water cooling.

the q9450 seems like it might be a good upgrade coming from a opteron 185.... I'm in no rush to get a new computer....

And SSE 4.1 :D

Can't wait to have mine :D

I don't think 0.5ghz here or there is as important as a 12mb L2

And who said anything about smart ,I want it!!!!

Ok, lets compare the two.

The q6600 runs at 2.4ghz (9x266) You need a 400mhz fsb for 3.6ghz total. Many modern mainboards (e.g. the Asus P35/X38 ones) officially support a 1600mhz fsb, so there should be no problem with sufficient cooling.

The q9450 runs at 2.6ghz (8x333). To reach 3.6 ghz, you'll have to ramp up the fsb to 450mhz. 1800mhz (450mhz quadpumped) however isn't currently supported by any mainboard that I know of, so there's no guarantee that you can get a stable system with a 450mhz fsb.

On top of that, the q9450 is a whopping 40 more (you already get the q6600 for 170), and has 2MB cache less than the q6600.

Q6600 has 14mb L2?

Ahhh 2 x 6MB I see what you mean



My FSB is at 437 but like I say my crappy ram wont do any more.

Are you sure? It's listed at HK$2700 (346 USD) and people here are complaining that it's too expensive. Q9300 is only HK$2300 (295 USD) though.

LMAO! The Q9450 is no Q9300.

Hey, I'm upgrading from an Opteron 185 as well.

The Q9450 and the extra cache will certainly make my rendering go much smoother. :D

Ya im gonna pair that q9450 with an x38, 4gb of ddr2, and stepup to nvidia's highest card as of march 23(thats when my stepup ends). I should see some performance gains coming from a nf4, 2gb of ddr400, and an 8800gts512.

yea when lol, march is still a long way...
lol :captnkill: let's all not forget a better cache management between those 4 cores..
its suppose to be around 312 here in eu, so $ = , as usual...

Quit yer whinging ,Buy retail and sell the hsf on ebay to get a little bit of monies back.

Shame it wont be the QX6850 Zalmanique one

Edit, I canceled my first order after I saw this price...

should be a few quid cheaper after tax, I may even wait and see if any others beat it.
