Q9650: Better with which: DG45ID OR DQ45CB?

Community Manager


I want to purchase Intel Q9650 but I am confused about compatible MotherBoard. Your website recommends using it with Q45 Series Boards. (

I chose DQ45CB but then I learnt that even DG45ID supports the same processor but I could not find the comparison of the same processor with different MotherBoards.

I want to know:

  1. Which MotherBoard gives better performance with Q9650: DQ45CB OR DG45ID?

My interest in DG45ID grew because it supports HDMI but I am mainly concerned about performance otherwise. Please help.



Please let me know so that I may make the purchase accordingly.

With Regards,

Amit Saxena

Bad news.

The only two motherboards available here are DP45SG and DG4DI. Both of them dont support Virtualisation (I could not find it in the product specification )

Guess I'll rather buy Q8200 with DG45ID as its almost half the price of Q9650.

I wanted to but Q45 as it supports Virtualization.

Any suggestions will highly be apreciated. Are you from India?
