That seems inaccurate, a 4790k is really ~4x faster than a Q6600? CPUs have gotten 4x faster from 2007 to 2014? The only "big" jumps we've had were between Core 2 and the first gen Core i-something CPUs, then I guess between 1st and 2nd gen with Sandy Bridge.

That OC isn't nearly as impressive as what the old C2Ds and C2Qs could do. A 7600K at 5GHz is like 20% above its stock clock. The old Q6600 could do like 3.6GHz (50% OC), or even 3.7-4.0 if you were very lucky and had the right stepping. That was a serious amount of extra performance. I had an i5 750, 2.66GHz CPU that ran 4.0 for years and could get up to 4.3 with voltage that I wasn't comfortable using all day every day. OC was much, much more impressive in the old days.

Nowadays you get a top-dog 7700K and you're lucky if you can push another 500MHz above it's 4.5GHz top clock. OC for actual performance is barely worth it anymore, it's pretty much just a hobby now. Ryzen is even worse on the AMD side. Back in the day you could get a very serious CPU performance boost from OC and the benefits were immediately and clearly visible.

Then it's still obsolete because it uses a fuck ton of power compared to, say, an Atom.
Q6600 is not a useful CPU no matter how you choose to look at it. It doesn't matter what you do or how much you don't do anything with it, there's something better and more appropriate out there for you. If you don't need a lot of horsepower, you're better off with an Atom or an i3 that will pay for itself in savings on your electrical bill within a year.
As such, the Core 2 lineup is obsolete, no matter how many lies you tell yourself.

Yeah, figured as much, it's not very impressive. I've got a 4.7GHz 4790K too, it's much faster of course but nowhere near as impressive as the Q6600 and i5 750 that came before it. We've pretty much hit the clock wall.

A top C2D can manage pretty much all common tasks. The biggest challenge are bloated websites, but even that is usable.

Hey OP. How are you enjoying PS2 and Wii emulation? Oh, that's right, your Q6600 doesn't have the power to emulate those games.

As did I, so then we both know how limited a Q6600 can be.

Anything that really stressed the PS2 would completely falter on a Q6600. Gran Turismo 3 for instance, or FFXII's effect heavy battle animations.

Let's not forget that truly stressful games like Shadow of the Colossus can even put modern CPUs to shame.

My point is that a $65 mobo/cpu combo on the lowest end of intel's offerings is almost on par with it, and it does 4K/H265, USB3 and SATA3 at 10 watts. And yes it's a quad core.

had a Q9400 on an Asus P5Q-E, ran it at 3.6 most of the time but for shits and giggles one day i gunned it for 4ghz and got a validation out of it.

Eventually sold it and used the funds to initiate the process of building another rig, which ended up being an LGA 1366 system with a hex core Xeon, a DX58SO motherboard (purchased effectively NIB for $30 off craigslist), and some spare CPUs to fuck around with including a C0 i7 920 specifically for flashing the board to the latest bios because it was still on the 2009 release bios.

No it was a tray of water, tap water hardly conducts electricity enough, it was a spare at the time it was one of the prebuilt compaqs where they cheaped out and didn't solder on a agp port, so I was upset that I couldn't use it as a gaming machine, so I decided to test it. The psu was outside the try, only the mobo was in the tray, I think I filled it up so the height of the water was above the cpu socket or near there.

Strip off a laptop charger and put both ends in the tap water, basically all that's going to happen is some light electrolysis, creating hydrogen and oxygen, I'm not saying I would stick my hand in there, but a 300W psu will do about the same thing, I've attempted to use a desktop psu for electrolysis of water, to use for an hho torch.

I'm not sure but if you had the hot side of an AC line in a puddle of water and a body part sunk into the puddle, if you would get shocked or not, but AC with no load isn't that bad it's more scary than anything as long as your body as the ability to instantly react and jump back you're usually fine.

3x seems more accurate.

Core 2/Core 2 Quad pale in comparison with modern CPUs. A fucking modern Celeron beats any of them.
