Intel Q9300 Quad-core

3. Test Configuration

In order to test Intel C2Q9300 we used the Asus Blitz Extreme mainboard with the latest available BIOS (1007) installed and of course, DDR3 memory.

In this test graphs we have added the results of another Intel processor, the E6750, which not only offers higher absolute speeds but comes with 2MB less L2 cache memory. It's a typical scenario, where a C2D user wishes to "upgrade" its performance with a quad core processor. What can you really expect from such cpu change? We will find out with a variety of tests and benchmarks.

  • CPU Cooler: Scythe Mugen
  • Motherboard: Asus Blitz Extreme BIOS 1007 beta
  • Memory: 2x1GB SuperTalent PC3-1600 CL7 (1333MHz @ 7-7-7-20-1T Divider 1:2, 1.90V)
  • VGA: MSI 7600GT Silent with latest Nvidia drivers installed
  • HDD: WD 80GB SATAI (primary)
  • HDD: WD 80GB SATAI (secondary)
  • Operating system: Windows XP SP2 with all latest updates installed
  • Operating system: Windows VISTA 32bit SP1 with all latest updates installed

We also used a variety of benchmark software under both Windows XP and Vista operating systems.
