And actually a friend of mine has a Core2Quad as his daily Win10 driver. It's +10 years but runs great, nowhere near sluggish. Even though it's a Win7-Win10 upgraded system. Very impressing IMO
It's awesome when you find a spouse who supports you all the way! 😀
My main rig has a Q9550. It's okay as an office and basic gaming platform but when I compare it to a 3 years old middle range CPU the differences are just insanely huge.
This Q9550 has a sentimental value to me but I should have replaced it like 3 years ago. The problem is that I have to replace everything else as well: board, RAM, GPU, even the PSU and I just don't want to spend that kind of money on an office rig. So the Q9550 stays!
Funny, IIRC, his is also a Q9550 (I remember for a fact that it's a 12 MiB version at least). Clocked at +3GHz, and been that since he got it .. 😁
Maybe it's because we only use laptops for work now, but that old rig seem sooooooo responsive, like there has been no development ever since. It might be a TDP thing with the old C2Q not using all kinds of power savings, where as my current laptop for work using an i7-9850H, idles at 800 MHz often ..?
