Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
Released March, 2008
The Pros:One of the most powerful CPUs, even today with i7. 95W TDP is good compared to AMD quadcores and i7. Built on the latest 45nm fabrication process - lower power draw, higher clock speeds, less waste heat produced.
The Cons:New generation of processors now available. 95W TDP is still rather hot. Expensive.
