It only list this as a release from q1 2014 but i bought an earlier version of a q8200 so this bench sucks


4 months ago.

This Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 CPU was included in a second hand office PC that I bought for approx. US$80 in 2016. When used mainly as an office / entertainment PC, there isn't really such a huge performance difference, compared to a B250M, Intel Core i3-7100 PC that my sister bought in mid 2017. In fact, I would even categorize the real-life day to day performance difference (PC start-up speed or for opening software programs, etc., etc.) as small. The difference is a few seconds at most.

Placed nowadays in the Core 2 Quad Q6600 perfomance, with a lower power draw and a lower cache as disvantage its and okay CPU that begans to age. This CPU was shipped in many mid-end prebuilt systems back in 2008. Most AAA games will suffer a poor perfomance when compared to a same clocked first generation desktop Core i5 CPU, if you're considering this as an upgrade the Xeon E5450 or X5450 will deliver higher perfomance for a similar price, check if your system is compatible.
