Front view of Intel Core2 Quad Q9300

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core2 Quad Q9300

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.25 MB 24x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 2.5 GHz vs 0.67 GHz Around 3.8x higher clock speed
Much more l2 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 6x more l2 cache per core
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.38 GHz vs 1.01 GHz More than 3.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.61 GHz vs 0.67 GHz Around 5.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
