Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 Review (Page 1 of 10)

By: Jonathan Kwan
June 1, 2008

Last week, we took a look at the so-called «budget minded» Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 desktop processor. Okay, it may be slapped with the ‘budget’ tag, but it certainly isn’t budget performance — our benchmarks indicate that it performed on an average of 2-5% better than the previous generation’s midrange E6600 CPU, yet retails for only roughly $140 — not to mention that it overclocks very decently. Today, we’ll examine something on the other end of the spectrum — the second fastest consumer desktop processor offered by Intel. So far, the fastest as far as I’m concerned is the QX9770 on LGA775, but one down is another ‘Extreme’ model with an unlocked multiplier — and that’s the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 processor, with an impressive 12MB (2x6MB) L2 cache over four cores operating at 3.0GHz stock. If you’re looking for something that spells 1337, pwn, omgwtfbbq, and whatever else you can describe it as, look no further than the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650. Plus you can sit back and relax to see how much it owns in the benchmarks. We won’t waste anymore of your time.

Our Intel processor review units came in a UPS medium box from Intel’s California headquarters. Using UPS Express Saver, it’s by no means slow; in fact it arrived in a day — it’s quite amazing. It was quite a big box; and with tons of paper and bubble packaging inside, our engineering sample CPUs arrived in perfect working condition. Time for the fun, baby.

For us, small black boxes were used to hold these precious units, somewhat reminding me of jewelery. Except the one on the left is something a geek would really want — look at the Sharpie label on top. Yep, we said that last week, but it’s really the same pictures since it came in the same box anyways haha. Take a look at the one QX9650 on the left. Drooling already? Be sure to check that your keyboard isn’t wet (and nasty and saliva-y).

Before we move on, let’s have a quick look at the specifications from Intel of the Yorkfield core CPUs, before we go deep in the next section:

Russian overclockers took four «gold» in 3DMark on the GeForce GTX 1080 SLI

Russian overclockers were among the first to test the ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 video card from ASUSTeK Computer. The honor to test the 2-Way SLI configuration of the aforementioned accelerators was given to representatives of the extreme team, which is part of the large Team Russia team: Smoke, 12 and Slamms. When assembling a high-end stand to fight for high results, Russian overclockers enlisted the support of ASUS and Corsair.

All results added to the HWBot database in 3DMark benchmarks (Vantage/Performance, 11/Performance, Fire Strike, Fire Strike Extreme) became «gold» for our trio. It is also worth noting that in the global 3DMark 11 rating on, the Russians entered the top 20, although they used only two GeForce GTX 1080 cards. To fight for absolute leadership, four GeForce GTX 980 Ti devices are needed (which was once proved by the same Smoke) or two video cards from future products (on condition that NVIDIA completely abandons 3- and 4-Way SLI).

The best result of Smoke, 12 and Slamms in 3DMark Vantage discipline (Performance preset) was 105,062 points. The 10-core processor Core i7-6950X of the Broadwell-E family was overclocked to 5129 MHz under liquid nitrogen (+71% to the nominal frequency of 3 GHz), and the ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 1080 SLI bundle conquered frequencies of 2110 and 1438 MHz without replacing the cooling system ( 11.5 Gbps) for the GDDR5X core and memory, respectively.

In 3DMark 11 (Performance), the duo of accelerators based on the Pascal GP104 chip scored 45,403 points. To do this, Russian overclocking gurus needed to increase the frequencies of video cards to 2110/1463 MHz (core/memory), and the processor to 5266 MHz.

In 3DMark Fire Strike, the record number of «parrots» was 34,309. This figure was achieved by overclocking the Core i7-6950X to 5269 MHz and operating the above-mentioned cards at 2110/1375 MHz. In the Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, the GDDR5X memory frequency was different (1423 MHz), as was the final result (20,958 points).

According to a publication prepared by overclocker IceAlex for OCLab. ru, the system (test stand) was based on the ASUS ROG Rampage V Edition motherboard. The company was made up of a four-channel RAM kit based on Samsung B-Die RAM chips, which operated in DDR-3260 mode with delays of 11-12-12-24-1T, as well as a Corsair HX1200i power supply.
