Intel Core 2 Quad: Grasping Bounds Q8000

Intel CPU

Intel has announced that they will be soon releasing the Q8000 series for all the Core 2 fans out there. Technically successor to the Q9550, the 8-series line of processors will unveil great speed, with a 1333MHz FSB capability for connection between PCI-AGP-CPU-and memory (NB to CPU) and also extremely great connection to Southbridge.

The Quad 8000 will go head on towards AMD’s triple-core CPU’s by launching at entry point. Good news for those who already burned money on power supplies. Now you’re probably wondering why it is a step down. Good question! Different from Intel’s Q9000 CPU line, the Q8000 series doesn’t support Intel’s VT.  That’s Virtualization Technology (integrating multiple environments on one vPro capable system or the like).

I'm all about one thing: reviews that are easy to understand and make sense of.


  1. Intel goodness at it’s best. I prefer the Q6600 though. 9550 is great too. I just have the 6600. Going to buy that Ex review that was done on the CPU sect. recently. Great news

  2. Yeah. I suppose this is a downside for those who need too many environments, but really good for the modern consumers

  3. I like it. But already got the heavier end ones : D

  4. Cool news

  5. This should be great for most high end game processing.
