Hi, i am doing 3D rendering and currently own an old 3.2 intel P4 processor.

i want to upgrade to either the Q9300 or the Q9450 to increase 3D rendering speeds.

the Q9300 is a 2.5Ghz processor with a L2 Cache of 6MB,

the Q9450 is a 2.66Ghz processor with a L2 Cache of 12MB.


how much of a difference in increased 3D rendering speeds may I notice with the Q9450? because im not sure if i should spend more money on it if i only see very minor changes in renders.

or will i barely notice better rendering times and should just stick with the cheaper Q9300?

thank you.

Hi YuriyNYR, here is an article I was reading comparing both the Q9300 and Q9450 to the Q6600. It answers several of your questions and it seems there is a little performance difference between the two, but the Q9300 runs cooler.

Comparison
