Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000


$348.00 Released December, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Least expensive mobile quadcore from Intel. . Most modern computers run more than one process at once; background & foreground. Assume that the op sys + multi-CPU allows these very many processes to proceed simultaneously; not shared sequentually on the one-only CPU. Great for mobile professionals that need the power of a desktop computer.

The Cons:Not required or worth the added price for the majority of consumers. Each core is significantly slower than a similarly price or even cheaper dual core. Hotter and more power hungry than 35W dual core processors.

Introduced in December 2008, the Core 2 Quad Q9000 is a quadcore mobile CPU from Intel.
