Current Penryn Dual-core 45nm bug prevents the quad-core
To be fixed with a new revision

Imagine our surprise when we learned that the current E8x00 series of Penryn has a bug that would prevent this dual-core to work in a Quad-core.

Traditionally, Intel’s quad-core is two dual-cores stitched together; but currently they cannot do it, as they don’t want to talk to each other.

Intel is supposed to have a new core revision that will solve this problem, and we have already heard that the first systems with 45nm mainstream Yorkfield should hit the market by the end of the month.

They almost get away with it
thats ghey

Source? And that doesn't really make sense since there are 45 nm quads out there; they're just hard to find. Or maybe it's all a huge Intel conspiracy and all those people supposedly benching them are lying!

edited it, I think that there is a serious bug, that may not be showing up in all of the chips. So if they make 100,000 per week, they can only use 20,000. Just a thought, Intel said that these(mainstream quads) were supposed to be available in january/fubuary..

What about the Xeon Quad that's equal to the Q9450? I thought I remember seeing that one on sale somewhere.

The full line of xeons are out(penryn server cpus), it doesn't add up, intel has yet to give us a reason why we don't have main stream quad cores, there 2 months overdue...

Perhaps I should just order the Xeon instead? My Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3P supports the Q9450 and the X3350 is the equiv and it's the same socket type, I don't know why it wouldn't work.

I can't find the X3350 anywhere in the UK. Are you guys sure they are out?

edit//

I did find it on a US site so maybe the UK ones are stuck on the same boat somewhere as the Q9450s.

Well what's so different about the QX9650 that has been out for quite some time now? Seems fishy to me as well.

I've heard that there can be differences between Xeons and consumer procs, but I also know some people have successfully done just that. You might want to check for a compatibility list either on Intel or Gigabyte's site and see if it's there.

As for the delay in getting 45 nm chips out in volume, I'd say there are two real possibilities. Either we're seeing the initial consequences of a not-so-competitive AMD in this market segment, or Intel really is having some significant trouble with their 45 nm production. A major bug that causes 20% yields might explain the latter, since they could release a low-volume $1000 chip for the sake of marketing and appeasing their investors, but take much longer to make the mainstream parts available. Of course, I've also heard that the dual cores are not always easy to get ahold of either, and it doesn't sound like they should be affected by this.

In any case, I don't care anymore. My Q6600 is sitting here waiting to be cranked up as soon as I can get some less flaky hardware to go with it( ), and I'm pretty sure that will keep me happy at least until this generation is considered older than dirt.

Last time i saw ,similar specs Xeons are priced up to 2x more expensive ,than quadcores or duals.. While they can be used for gaming and their performance might be the same.. if im not mistaken ,i read somewhere that its main diferences are the ability to run in Multi CPU configurations in a single board with 2-4x sockets.. perharps there is a special hardware inside that allows sinchronization between cpus. And that they are optimized for memorry With error corrention that allows greater stability in the entire system. Xeons target is the server/business market.
