Intel Core 2 Extreme Mobile QX9300


$1,038.00 Released October, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Only 10w more than mobile dual core offerings. Latest 45nm fabrication - smaller transistors mean less power required, cooler temperatures, faster operation. Full quad-core processor - on the same level as a more modest high end desktop processor.

The Cons:Extremely expensive. Still slower than much cheaper, comparably clocked desktop processors. Unlocked multiplier on a laptop chip is senseless.

The Intel Core 2 Extreme Mobile QX9300 is a quad-core mobile processor that is a part of Intel's Core 2 Extreme Mobile line of processors.  This processor can achieve clock speeds of up to 2.53 GHz along with 12MB of L2 cache and a 1066 MHz front side bus making it ideal for hi-def multimedia or the latest generation of hardcore games.
