Intel to release three new Core 2 Quad Processors
Yesterday's Core i7 release wasn't perhaps the epic event that many, including Intel, had been hoping for. The reason for this is more than likely due to the cost - with many waiting a few months for the initial premium pricing to become a little more friendly on the hip pocket. However, there is no doubt that Intel's Core i7 is currently the cream of the crop when it comes to building a high-end PC.
But where does this leave the budget and midrange builders? We already know that Intel have plans to continue the LGA775 socket well into 2011, albeit aimed towards the entry level consumer. Come January of next year, Intel are reportedly gearing up to release a plethora of new processors including Core 2 Quads with a TDP reduction from 95W to 65W.
Intel will launch three new Core 2 Quad processors with a TDP of just 65W. This is compared to a 95W TDP for most other Core 2 Quad processors. At the time of launch, the price premium for the Q8200s, Q9400s, and Q9550s will be $62, $54, and $53 respectively
Intel C2Q Pricing
As well as three new Quad-cores, Intel will also launch a new Pentium Dual Core processor in November and one more on January 18.
The 2.6 GHz Pentium Dual Core E5300 will show up on November 30 priced at $86. The E5300 will be joined by a 2.7 GHz Pentium Dual Core E5400 on January 18 priced at $84. At that time, the E5300 will see a price cut to $74 while the older 2.5 GHz E5200 will fall to $64. Slightly higher up on the food chain will be a new 2.93 GHz Core 2 Duo E7500 priced at $133.

It's nice to see that Intel hasn't forgotten about their budget and mainstream lineups in light of Core i7's release.

Anyone care to convert those crazy airflow numbers into more comparable CFM?

Damn you beat me to it dude, Those fans look really nice, but I think just for that euro-hippie BS I won't be buying them :p

I'm gonna quickly look on scythe's website, if I find anything listing CFM, I'll update this thread, but I'm not gonna be hopeful.

If anyone from scythe PR is reading this, pull it together mate CFM is an industry standard measure of airflow!:sleep:

Edit 1: Alright my bad, I dont blame Scythe, Nidec-Servo have some explaining to do as one of the biggest fan manufacturers in the world though!

The most powerful 98m3/h ones are about 54CFM I think.

I just did a little bit of maths and put 98m3/h at around 57cfm. I'll convert the whole chart for you guys if wanted and add it to my post.


After a good 10 minutes of crunching numbers (thanks uncle Google!), Here is the converted chart, should be accurate within a couple cfm, which is well within the margin for manufacturer BS, I mean error!

120 mm - 500 rpm: 0.015 A - 5 dBA - 31 m³/h - 18 cfm
120 mm - 800 rpm: 0.023 A - 9 dBA - 48 m³/h - 28 cfm
120 mm - 1,150 rpm: 0.034 A - 16 dBA - 63 m³/h - 37 cfm
120 mm - 1,450 rpm: 0.049 A - 21 dBA - 85 m³/h - 50 cfm
120 mm - 1,850 rpm: 0.083 A - 28 dBA - 98 m³/h - 57 cfm
92 mm - 1,700 rpm: 0.03 A - 13 dBA - 44 m³/h - 25 cfm
92 mm - 2,150 rpm: 0.046 A - 20 dBA - 58 m³/h - 34 cfm
92 mm - 2,650 rpm: 0.078 A - 26 dBA - 71 m³/h - 41 cfm

Bah, still no match for the Xilence RedWing or my new favourite fans, Xigmatek XLF-F1253.
