Thats part of the reasons why the old phenoms didnt do well...very low cache.

Doesn't mean the Q7500 will perform the same as the Phenoms.

ehh i say it if cost like $120-130 it'll be good..but if it's like $149.99 (normally what "under" means... ) then it'll be decent

Will 2mb cache really make that big of a difference though? And would it be a good upgrade from an E4600 (Also with 2mb cache)?

The cache will affect it more in some applications than others.

The high multiplier and low tdp is nice. If it is far enough under $150 it would be a nice option.

looks to be a piece of crap, the q8200 will out perform this thing. unless it's under $99 i do not see the point. intel all ready has alot of quads floating around on the market.

Nah the q8200 is worse than this..

Lower multiplier but higher FSB and less feature support

what? the q8200 has double the cache and a bigger FSB. how can it be worse? i guarantee the q8200 will outperform this.

Well I'm saying that the cache can be made up if the q7500 OC's well enough... where as the q8200 is way too crippled in terms of low cache (more than this) but its multiplier wreaks because it has 1333FSB
