Core 2 Quad Q9550


Description
The Core 2 Quad Q9550 is a cpu manufactured by Intel released on March 2008. This model is based on Core architecture which codename was originally Gesher. The development began in 2005 and four years later, the first Sandy Bridge CPU was presented. The most prominent features are Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, AES encryption and SHA-1 hashing acceleration, Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 256-bit instruction set and the ability to have up to 8 physical cores or 16 logical cores through Hyper-Threading.

This model runs at 2833 MHz as base frequency with a thermal design power of 95 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 128+128 kB level 1 cache, 12288kB of level 2 cache and kB of level 3 cache.

The performance score in monothread tasks in mode 0 (non-optimized software) of the Core 2 Quad Q9550 is 16725 while its multithread score in the same mode is 50918 points. If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode I optimized for SSE3), the monothread score is 17978 and the multithread score is 56187 points.

There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the Intel Core i7-860 , the Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 and the Intel Core i5-2300 amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
