Default where are the Q9450 reviews?UPDATE found one

I have been looking for SOOOO long now but to my suprize there is no decend review(well not even crappy ones) of this processor nothing , naday , zip , I specially would like to know the scalling compared to a Q9300 ,any have a link or numbers?

I know it is hard to get one but is intel like slapping all review site sNOO STAY OFF WE need them to supply demand.

I am trying to decide between
E8400 180euro
E8500 250euro
Q9300 250euro
Q9450 290euro

I finally decided to go for a quad since there already a few games benefiting quad allthaugh the price of a E8400 is really really nice but the system will prob last until windows 7(prob 2010 ).But then i noticed i have no benchies at all to support a Q9450 buy.

Also decided to go for a P35 instead of 60euro more expensive X38 (only going single 9600GT) and if i need to upgrade for some strange reason to pci-e2 I might as wel get p45 later on to replace it and have paid in total almost as much as a X38.

PS anyone heard anything about a asus 9600GT silent yes wrong forum

UPDATE

I'm interested too...I'm in the market for an inexpensive quad, and the Q9450 looks sweet on paper...

It's between the E8500, Q9450, and Q6600. I've seen some E8500's reach 4.6GHz. I haven't read anything on the Q9450's yet, but I'm good with my Q6600, it should hold out for at least another year or two. Keep in mind that technology is moving, they can keep making smaller die dual core's, but eventually, quad core is the way, that's why I chose the Q6600 over the E8x00's.

ty you very much for that link but what i ment was that there tons of shop putting them on there website (getting them is a other thing) but having benchmarks/reviews of the Q9450 is apparently not possible

I do not wanne buy a Q9450 if there is no significant gain over Q9300 it should at least double cache bit higher frequency but I just do not know :P

At least one??!!!??!!!
http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles...521&cid=2&pg=1 (made on 1april mmm)

petty no Q9300 but something makes me wondering , xbitlabs came to the conclusion that the Q9300 is 5-10% faster then the Q6600 and that would make it close to the Q9450(working with the numbers of hardwarezone). With the last one getting close to the Q9550.

INTEL multiplier locks are making A LOT more sense now.Guess the Q9300 is perfectly fine for the none hardcore overcloking people.

But still wonder where that 6MB cache wall would come into affect or also a reason for 7.5 multi?

Starting to suspect the performance is really close to Q9300 and this is some conspiracy to keep the reviews from showing this until they´ve sold a whole bunch of Q9450 hehe..
I´m planning to buy one, but I wanna see some reviews (not that seem to be in stock anywhere round here yet, but still)
