Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400


$199.00 Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Can handle heavy processing loads gracefully with room to spare. Generally sits at about 4% usage when not running any high-demand applications. Good flexibility with overclocking, can be pushed to even higher speeds.

The Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 is a 45nm, ‘Yorkfield’ quad-core 2.66GHz microprocessor designed as a competitive solution to AMD’s quad-core processors. An immediate step up from the Q8300, the Quad Q8400 differs only in its core speed.

Like its peer, it features a 1333MHz FSB, as well as Intel 64 architecture, Intel Trusted Executed Technology, Execute Disable Bit, and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology. The Q8400 has a smaller die—all cores on one die—and should therefore function as a great overclocker. However, its low multiplier of 7.5 drastically limits the overclocking power of the chip due to its standard FSB.
