Default Intel now shipping 45nm Yorkfield CPUs for next week

Q9450 when when when when when ??

Next week!!!

Intel 45nm Yorkfield CPUs to start selling next week.

Quote:
As you know, the shipments of 45nm quad-core Core 2 Quad processors were delayed due to issues with processor system bus discovered in them. These Yorkfield processors on the new C1 stepping that would be free from this problem were expected to arrive in early March. According to sources, the new processor went into mass production exactly as planned and next week we should see 45nm Core 2 Quad Q9300, Q9450 and Q9550 in retail stores already. The mass production processors will be based solely on C1 stepping, which doesn’t have any changes to its thermal, electrical or mechanical specifications compared with the previous C0 processor stepping that is used widely in dual-core Wolfdale processors these days.

Quad-core Core 2 Quad Q9550 and Core 2 Quad Q9450 processors will be designed to work at 2.83GHz and 2.66GHz respectively. For the first time for Core 2 Quad family they will work with 1333MHz bus and thanks to 45nm process they will feature total 12MB of L2 cache memory. Core 2 Quad Q9300 works at 2.5GHz frequency and also supports 1333MHz bus, however its L2 cache is only 6MB big. All new quad-core processors feature 95W TDP. The official prices of Q9550, Q9450 and Q9300 models are set at $530, $316 and $266 respectively. Nevertheless, they will be priced a bit higher in stores, because of high customer demand, which Intel cannot satisfy so far.

Intel chief executive Paul Otellini said to analysts during the recent meeting that the company was working hard to eliminate the shortages of their 45nm processors. Intel is currently manufacturing about 100 thousand 45nm processors a day offering 72 different models in desktop, server and mobile segments. The company has already made 3.5 million 45nm CPUs by now and is not going to stop just yet. According to their revealed plans, each fourth Intel processors will be manufactured with 45nm process by the end of Q1 2008, and by second half of Q3, they will be producing equal amounts of 65nm and 45nm solutions.

Yorkfield CPUs with new C1 stepping will give better overclocking than old C0 stepping.

I wont get Q9450 right away, I will wait until Nvidia launched Hybrid SLi for Intel and read review about Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme to decide between it and Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme.

I've been wondering, whats the real big benefit for anyone in switching from FSB 1066 to FSB 1333? Enthusiasts like us can take the FSB to w/e we want...and how much does that extra 266MHz do for the average pc user? Seems like all it's doing is hurting overclockers.

My motherboard has a 1333 FSB architecture but I'm at 1600MHz FSB right now and I'm completely fine.

Okay, if I could buy a Q6600 for $200, or the Q9450 for about $350... what would you guys chose?

Q9450 if you can. It should have a better OC, run a little cooler and the SSE4 instructions will help in a few media applications.

Hmm...

Would I be off to assume that I should be able to hit 3.4 on air with the Q6600? So would you expect 3.6 to 3.8 with the Q9450 then?

Right.. And it should be cooler too.

I don't know how it happened, but I managed to sell my laptop and I'm getting my paycheck soon and I'm in time for 9450. What is this? Fate?

Hurry up 9450!
