    The processor is not disapearing from the shelfs. Its just that Intel isn't producing enough to meet the high demand for them and thats why there always out of stock.

    Intel had dropped Q9550 price to be nearly identical to Q9450, so there's no reason for consumers to buy Q9450, thus they EOL-ed it

    Yeah, it had absolutely no problems.

    As wuyanxu said, Intel just dropped the price of the Q9550 to the same as the Q9450's, so there's no reason to sell Q9450s anymore. :)

    Its also because everyone already has a Q6600 which typically clocks similarly, and costs less monies!

    i agree with mankz on this one, the jump from the Q6600 to the Q9450 just wasn't big enough in performance to justify the cost. Dare i say I7 isn't worth the cost vs performance from a Q6600 at the moment..

    no... Intel dropped it in favour of the Q9400, exactly the same but half the cache did they not? Damn good chip the Q9450, and Scan still have a few but as said the Q9550 is probably the better buy now (well, after Core i7 :D)
    As for speeds, I will take on a Q6600 any day, as long as they don't phase :D I think I can get to 4Ghz one day, which ain't too bad for a chip that is ok at clocking. Besides at identicle clocks I think the tweaked archetecture on the 9450 gives it the edge over the 6600.
