Stunning Performance Runs Latest
Starting with Intel's
revolutionary new high-efficiency, high-performance 45nm processor technology,
Intel engineers decided to go one step farther in the performance department. By
including 12 MB of shared L2 cache and a front side bus speed of 1333 MHz, the
Q9650 processor pushes the technological innovation envelope farther than ever
For users, this means the latest and most advanced
software applications can open and run faster with superior responsiveness. When
used with the latest multimedia software and next-generation games, dropped
frames, long waiting times, and stuttering performance are things of the
New Technologies Provide Higher Performance and Better Energy
By using hafnium, a naturally occurring element, Intel
engineers were able to shrink the size of new Intel processors and pack more
computing technology into less space. The processor also features Intel's
Intelligent Power Capability, which allows it to turn off parts of itself when
it isn't in use. The result is improved performance with less energy wastage and
a reduction of heat and noise.
Intel has packed the Core 2 Quad Q9650 with cutting-edge technologies for
better performance. Wide Dynamic Execution allows the processor to do more tasks
simultaneously by enabling the delivery of more instructions per clock cycle.
Intel's Advanced Smart Cache technology improves performance by physically
placing data closer to the processing cores. And Smart Memory Access, which
increases available data bandwidth, means you'll experience less slowdown while
multi-tasking, so you can get more done.
Multimedia Acceleration for Faster Content Creation
If you are
editing HD video, manipulating professional-grade photos, or working with music,
the Q9650 will let your computer keep up with your imagination. The processor
features Intel's Advanced Digital Media Boost for accelerating performance of a
wide range of applications including video, gaming, speech and image, and photo
processing among others. Additionally, Intel's HD Boost technology further
improves the performance of SSE4-optimized applications, such as video editing
and encoding in high definition.
Fewer Multi-tasking Slowdowns
With four processing cores, you'll be
able to juggle more projects and more applications without experiencing the
slowdown that you typically see with traditional single-core processors.
Processing tasks are split up and distributed to the four different cores so the
Q9650 doesn't get bogged down.
Get a Leg Up on the Latest Games
Next-generation gaming is more
than just pretty environments and smooth motion. Behind the incredible visual
realism of waterfalls or the unlucky ricochet of a bullet are intense,
high-speed calculations of asset streaming, terrain generation, 3D rendering,
and physics effects. When running select next-generation games, each of the
cores in the Q9650 can be dedicated to each of these individual processes,
resulting in smoother, more lifelike graphics and further blurring the line
between virtual and reality.
The Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 is backed by a three-year
