I know. I was mainly pointing out that they are now available on newegg. When they previously weren't.

I thought this was going to be another thread about the Optimus Maximus keyboard...

I thought the QX9650 was expensive!
Hmm...I'm running my QX9650 now at 1600MHz bus, so it appears exactly the same as the 9770. Not sure what else is actually different.

QX9775 is compatible only with the Intel DX5400 motherboard. Unless you've got a Skulltrail, I don't see a reason to get them as well.

If I had the money I would, but I'm still waiting to see what the Q9550's come out at.

2 of those in a Skulltrail == a hell of a lot of money :D

But, upto 8000 PPD f@lding :smoking:

yeah and if you love your environment this processor is not for you, it sucks more power than a QX9650... i like to go green.

Two for $3239.98 + motherboard


It looks like Skulltrail can end up being the most expensive platform of all times. We just saw that newegg has listed an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9775 Yorkfield 3.2GHz 12MB L2 Cache LGA 771 150W Quad-Core Processor Ė Retail, that is only compatible with the Skulltrail (D5400XS) platform.

The motherboard itself has to cost around $400 and donít forget that FBDIMM memory at 800MHz isnít that cheap.

You can easily break $4000 for a motherboard, 2GB of memory and two Core 2 Extreme QY9775 and this already sounds way too steep.

The CPU is highly overclockable and works at 3.2GHz out of the box, but we are still not convinced that its worth all of $1,619.99. We expected around $1000 per CPU and even at that price point we would think itís too much, but $1600 is way out of line.

If you still want one you can get it here.
It's quite the investment, for minimal performance gains over other solutions(Qx9650,x48)
