Sim Lim Sq Walkabout: Week 16, 2008
AMD Phenom X4 and Intel Core 2 Duo E7200
The AMD Phenom X4 is a quad-core 2.2GHz processor with a total of 4MB of L2 and L3 cache combined. No pricing is available for it when this article was published.
The Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 is a low cost dual-core CPU targeted at the mainstream consumer. It has half the cache of its E8000-series siblings, and also runs on a comparatively slower system bus of 1066MHz, instead of 1333MHz. However, when E7200 retails for a little over $ 200, you can’t really complain much!
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 and Q9550 available!
Stocks are available for Q9450 and Q9550 this week, especially for those hunting for Q9550 chips. They are going for $ 525 and $ 827 respectively at Cybermind Computer House.
