About this product:
Starting with Intel's revolutionary new high-efficiency, high-performance 45nm processor technology, Intel engineers decided to go one step farther in the performance department. By including 4 MB of shared L2 cache and a front side bus speed of 1333 MHz, the Q8300 processor pushes the technological innovation envelope farther than ever before.
For users, this means the latest and most advanced software applications can open and run faster with superior responsiveness. When used with the latest multimedia software and next-generation games, dropped frames, long waiting times, and stuttering performance are history.
New Technologies Provide Higher Performance and Better Energy Efficiency
By using hafnium, a naturally occurring element, Intel engineers were able to shrink the size of new Intel processors and pack more computing technology into less space. The processor also features Intel's Intelligent Power Capability, which allows it to turn off parts of itself when it isn't in use. The result is improved performance with less energy wastage and a reduction of heat and noise.
Intel has packed the Core 2 Quad Q8300 with cutting-edge technologies for better performance. Wide Dynamic Execution allows the processor to do more tasks simultaneously by enabling the delivery of more instructions per clock cycle. Intel's Advanced Smart Cache technology improves performance by physically placing data closer to the processing cores. And Smart Memory Access, which increases available data bandwidth, means you'll experience less slowdown while multi-tasking, so you can get more done.
Multimedia Acceleration for Faster Content Creation
If you are editing HD video, manipulating professional grade photos, or working with music, the Q8300 will let your computer keep up with your imagination. The processor features Intel's Advanced Digital Media Boost for accelerating performance of a wide range of applications including video, gaming, speech and image, and photo processing among others. Additionally, Intel's HD Boost technology further improves the performance of SSE4-optimized applications, such as video editing and encoding in high definition.
Fewer Multi-tasking Slowdowns
With four processing cores, you'll be able to juggle more projects and more applications without experiencing slowdown that you typically see with traditional single-core processors. Processing tasks are split up and distributed to the four different cores so the Q8300 doesn't get bogged down.
Get a Leg Up on the Latest Games
Next-generation gaming is more than just pretty environments and smooth motion. Behind the incredible visual realism of waterfalls or the unlucky ricochet of a bullet are intense, high-speed calculations of asset streaming, terrain generation, 3D rendering, and physics effects. When running select next-generation games, each of the cores in the Q8300 can be dedicated to each of these individual processes, resulting in smoother, more lifelike graphics and further blurring the line between virtual and reality.
