Ok well I was wondering if anyone has heard anything else about the Penryn chip. Stettybet0 posted this chart in an earlier reply:
If it is true that the chip will be released in Jan 08 then I think I will be able to wait. I have been very busy with homework, critical papers, and working so I have not had time to play. But I am trying to convince my dad and aunt to build them a new PC. If I convince at least one of them then I will be able to give them my Pentium D, mobo, and RAM (because it is the lower DDR2 667MHz not 800MHz).
If the release date is Jan 08 then I think they will be able to wait until then and I can get a new mobo, RAM, and a Penryn (I'm thinking the Q9300 by the look of the chart or do you think it is worth it to go for the Q9400 because it has twice the amount of L2 Cache, for $50 more)
*Any more info on performance or release dates?
*Is this chart legit?
*Which Penryn should I go for? (I kinda want to go for the Quad but man $266)
Thanks a lot guys for all of the help you have given.
I have not been in the forums much lately but I hope to jump in a little more often.

I like the Virus idea but it seems a little too evil. I might just install something and say "Oh you see that program." "Yeah." "That is a Virus and your comp. is no longer safe or something." But I don't think I will be able to fool my dad with that so I may need to get creative.
Also I would criticize your aunt and dad that their computers suck or give their computer a virus, that way you can convince them for sure thumbsup.gif.

I would definitely go with the Q9450 over the Q9300. Double the L2 cache should really make a performance difference, not to mention the slightly higher clocks.

I have 3GB of RAM, but I got the 1GB set for 20$, like SOORENA said, it is no longer cost effective to purchase 1GB kits, I have seen 2GB kits going for $20 in canada as of late....DDR2 prices have bottomed out, I would not expect prices to get any lower. I think prices will increase sometime in the new year. This is temping me to get 8GB of RAM and dual boot into 64bit OS, but thats a whole different story......
Like I have already mentioned in this thread, expect a 20%ish mark up on those prices.

Oh really. That might be a problem. Do you have a link to article for that?
They have been delayed till Feburary/March due to an errata.

Ok any suggestions on a board that will run a Core 2 Duo (probably an E6750) and a Penryn?
Edit: I am looking under Newegg's "Power Search" and under "CPU Type" I do not see Penryn. http://www.newegg.co.......&GASearch=3
Or will any Quad core board support the Penryn?
