Yes with C1 stepping. Last month Hardspell received news leaked Q9300 C1 sample overclocked from 2.5GHz to 3.6GHz and the Vcore is impressed 1.256V at 480MHz FSB for the 3.6GHz. Not bad for Q9300 with 7.5 multiply.

Q9450 with 8 multiply on 480MHz FSB can overclock to 3.8GHz with around the same Vcore as Q9300.

Thing is ..in HKG, they are available for pre-order...but the Q9450 was quoted at HK$3500 or USD$450 ...thats USD$182 over the wholesale price (1,000 per lot)

The ASUS Rampage Formula X48 is scheduled for this week too in some german sellers. I cross my fingers. I pre-ordered all my parts in early January. I'll be happy with a 8x450MHz OC in my Q9450.

I would take the Q6600, of course, w/o hesitating a single second, and spend the rest on pr0n

He doesn't need to buy ordinary (male-female) pr0n like me, he can get gay pr0n as well if he prefers it

Fina-freaking-lly.

Maybe now I can get my new system running by the end of the month. D:

So are these actually in any stores yet (none of the ones I generally shop at seem to have them)? I'm seriously considering just ordering the system with the 6600 since the performance difference isn't likely to be huge and the 45nm processors are probably going to have a price premium for a while that I'm not going to pay anyway.

The main reason for me getting the Q9450 over the Q6600 is that it runs cooler and needs less voltage. But the high FSB is a downer.

If you look at x264 benchmark here, I think you will see big difference in clock speed when overclocking. A 3.91GHz Q6600's performance is about the same as 3.47GHz Q9450 using same FSB speed on similar spec but the benchmark only showed Q9450 ES at 7.5 multipler:

Quote:
Q6600 Kentsfield 4 9.0 x 434 3.91 P35 5-5-5-18 @ 868 Windows XP Pro x32 FPS1: 195.01 FPS2: 54.65
Q9450 ES Yorkfield 4 7.5 x 450 3.38 P35 4-5-4-11 @ 900 Windows XP Pro x32 FPS1: 189.83 FPS2: 50.17
Base on calculation, here what the Q9450 performance like on 8 x 450 and 8 x 434:

Q9450 Yorkfield 4 8 x 450 3.60 P35 4-5-4-11 @ 900 Windows XP Pro x32 FPS1: 202.48 FPS2: 53.51
Q9450 Yorkfield 4 8 x 434 3.47 P35 4-5-4-11 @ 900 Windows XP Pro x32 FPS1: 195.28 FPS2: 51.61

A 3.47GHz Q9450 on 8 x 434 performed like a 3.91GHz Q6600, 440MHz clock difference.

Ugh, so apparently you edited your post while I was replying, but the point I was going to make still stands. A 3.38 9450 is approximately equivalent to a 3.6 Q6600 (a little slower actually, so the difference is probably smaller than that), which is only a little over 5% difference. Not earthshaking by any means. I'm not sure where you're getting your numbers, but since they seem to be based on speculation (and an unlocked multi?) I think I'll stick with what's actually in the table.
