Intel Continues To Add To LGA775 Line

"Intel keeps the LGA775 platform alive with the release of three new processors."

Search News

Even with the advancement of the LGA1156 platform, it seems Intel is not ready to abandon the previous generation quite yet. Word is that they are keeping their LGA775 platform lineup up to date with the release of three new CPUs.

First up is the Q9500.  Set to replace the current Q9400, this new quad core processor steps the clock speed up to 2.83GHz with a price of $183.  The chip will continue to make use of a 6MB L2 cache and a 1333MHz front side bus.

The other two processors are a pair of Wolfdale-based dual cores.  The Pentium E6600, priced at $84, will be clocked at 3.06GHz and utilize a 2MB cache and 1066MHz FSB, while the Celeron E3400 will provide users with a 2.6GHz, 1MB cache, 800MHz chip for $53.  These new additions to the dual core line will result in price cuts for the current processors, with the E6500, E5400, and E3300 dropping to $74, $64, and $43 respectively.

While the i3/i5 platform is beginning to gain steam, Intel obviously feels the need to maintain the LGA775 platform for the entry-level market.

This is so soft but still fast, feels sooo nice when you use your rig alot like I do. Ive had a fair few mats through here lately and Im keeping this one

What's with the video? That's fake, why would any mouse mat do that flicking action? What mouse is he using a ball mouse >.<. Not shiny.

The owner of Pure Trak saw the comments here about the design and asked me to post this comment:

"I took a quick look at the comments from your users and a lot seem to be set on how the design of the pad(s) look. To clarify, the designs of our surfaces are for 100% functionality and not for over the top, fancy designs. During our almost 2 year research, design, and development phase... we've found that our simplistic pattern design offers the best tracking and least amount of issues when it comes to the movement of any mouse (optical or laser). Paired with either our microreflective or cloth weave surface, we've eliminated any and all movement flaws otherwise created by other surfaces. Most of the time, caused by the "cool", over complex images they feature."

Now I can see how the designs could be a marmite topic, but i really can not stress enough how much I like the Talent pad, Ive had all the coolermaster pads here, razer exact mats, and the Zowie mats, but for me personally the fact this mats fabric feels so soft, yet still runs so smooth and fast.
There is a massive choice with some great mats out there to be had, but for £10 - £20 surely its worth trying something new for a change ;)

Trouble is tbh most people buy with their eye if they don't like the look of a product regardless of how good it is they will move on to the next

I do not buy with my eye but in my opinion I will go purchase a mouse mat from a company that I've purchased before. Not saying I wouldn't give it a go, but nowadays my standards are so high, I wouldn't want to base my facts on experience with top dog companies. I'm currently using Sharkoon 1337 Cloth Mat, which is a cheap cloth mat and it's impressive (most likely the best mouse pad I've ever used), so this could shock a few people I guess.

Hmmm. Strange. The Deluxe is a bit love it or hate it, whereas the Talent isn't offensive to the eye at all.

And both are so well suited to their purposes that the look shouldn't even come into the equation, as hopefully our score indicated.

I hadn't used anything from Razer before, but I do use the Destructor pad... It's hard and very flat but tracks amazingly with perfect control. That said, it bloody should for how much it cost.
