Default What is g0?

I've looked through a few posts and all I really know is that it's something on the new processors.

Any information or links would be helpful! Thank you!

P.S. Does the search function not work for anyone else?

The G0 is a stepping for the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor. The processor has two steppings: G0 and B3. The G0 runs on less power, thus it runs cooler and can overclock more.

My search feature doesn't work. I thought it was a problem with the forums, but now you've made it clear it's my problem.

Thanks for reading my post.
