Intel Technology
45nm Hafnium-Based Architecture. Thanks to a naturally occurring element called Hafnium, Intel engineers were able to shrink the size of new Intel processors and pack more computing technology into less space. The result is improved performance with less energy wastage.

Intel® Wide Dynamic Execution. Enables the delivery of more instructions per clock cycle for shorter execution times and improved energy efficiency—accomplish more simultaneously and with greater efficiency.

Intel® Intelligent Power Capability. Turning off portions of the processor when they aren't being used improves overall energy efficiency and reduces heat production, resulting in a quieter, more energy efficient system.

Intel® Smart Memory Access. Increasing available data bandwidth means more multitasking with less slowdown—run more demanding applications simultaneously and accomplish more in less time.

Intel® Advanced Smart Cache. Placing data closer to the processing cores improves platform responsiveness and performance with a wide range of applications.

Intel® Advanced Digital Media Boost. Accelerates performance with a wide range of applications, including video, gaming, speech and image, photo processing, encryption, financial, engineering and scientific applications.

Intel® HD Boost. Available only on the latest 45nm Intel processors, this revolutionary technology takes Intel® Advanced Digital Media Boost and improves it even further enabling significant gains on the latest SSE4 instruction set. SSE4-optimized applications, such as video editing and encoding in high-definition resolution, will see additional performance improvements

Multimedia
With professional-grade photo, music and HD video editing software readily available for consumers, it's becoming increasingly popular to create, edit, and share entertainment with friends and family. Unfortunately, these same applications are notoriously resource hungry. Built to handle the most demanding software, the four cores of the 45nm Intel Core 2 Quad processor help ensure that when you're working with high-resolution photos, exporting your next audio mashup, or editing HD-quality home movies, your computing platform will be able to keep pace with your creative muse.

Multitasking
A computing platform featuring a new 45nm Intel Core 2 Quad-Core processor maximizes processing efficiency, allowing computer users to juggle multiple projects in multiple applications without experiencing the slowdown typically seen with traditional single-core processors.

Gaming
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 Intel Core 2 Quad processor can be dedicated to each of these individual processes, resulting in smoother, more lifelike graphics and further blurring the line between virtual and reality.

it isn't worth the price here at $300 that's for sure...not when you could get a 3rd generation Ivy Bridge with motherboard for around the same price. I got a free motherboard a couple years ago and got this CPU used for $100. It has worked out great for me. I overclocked it to 3.3 Ghz and have some room to spare if I wanted to upgrade from my 800mhz ram to 1066. But the ram is bottlenecking my OC currently. I also have an i5-750 and this is comparable...real world performance can't notice a huge difference.

This processor is a huge step up from my 7 year old computer. While I'm very happy with my purchase, the Intel Core i7's seem like a better choice once you get into the above $200 price point.

For me, the quad core did turn out to be a much better choice than the dual core processors as I concurrently run several cpu intensive tasks at any given time. With the Q9300, nothing seems to really bog it down. Both Vista 64 and Windows 7 (beta 64) work great.

Excellent performance for the current price. Runs cooler than my Q6600 (B3 stepping) at its higher base speed (2.5 GHz). Max OC achieved = 3.3 GHz, with 1.33V Vcore, and ZEROTherm Nirvana NV-120 HSF. Could possibly go higher, but water-cooling is required.

This CPU's dual-core competition is the E8400, but I prefer quad-core CPUs as overall PC performance in Vista is boosted by the presence of the two extra cores. The E8400 may be a bit faster in games overall, but more and more developers are optimising newer games for 2, 3 and 4-cores. I contend that multi-core CPUs are 'the future'.

All in all, highly recommended. After market HSFs (such as the excellent Thermalright Ultima 90/Ultra-120 Extreme)are also highly recommended if purchasing this CPU.

i had my desktop build for almost 2 days now and its functioning great. the quad core is working great with my 9800gtx graphic. the processing is smooth and most importantly, no heat trouble so far.

I have had this CPU for two years now. Performance is very good. It is faster than I expected at 2.5Ghz. The only problem I have encountered is how hot it runs. I have tried three different coolers, first the stock cooler, then a Freeze 7, now I have an H5O unit on it and I am still getting up to 70C and I have not overclocked it at all. But I have had it for 2 years and haven't had a problem so until I do I guess it isn't an issue.

Great processor and still being used. I have not seen much difference with more recent gen CPUs.
