Intel Core 2 Quad Processor

Based on new Intel Core microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 Quad processor delivers four complete execution cores within a single processor, delivering unprecedented performance and responsiveness in multi-threaded and multi-tasking environments.

With Intel Core 2 Quad desktop processor, more instructions can be carried out per clock cycle, shorter and wider pipelines execute commands more quickly, and improved bus lanes move data throughout the system faster. The processors are built on 45nm Intel Core microarchitecture enabling faster, cooler, and quieter experiences.
