Can anyone tell me please what is the equivalent CPU to my "Quadcore Extreme" 2.9Ghz chip with today's processors please?

please bare in mind it was the top of the range when it was made a couple of years ago hence the "Extreme" label...if its not another quad chip which hex core would match it?

Thanks

You will have to give more details of your CPU as "Quadcore Extreme covers a few different processors.Take your pick.

What is your budget? What is your main use for your PC?

Its a replacement from my insurance from a Dell XPS, they have tried fobbing me off with a i3 then an i5 processor so i am kinda trying to make them understand my cpu was one of the "Extreme" chips but they are telling me its not about the model or type its the speed??? im on a "Like for Like" basis..so i think asking for a "Extreme" chip is acceptable its insured for £2000...Thanks guys!

Then a Nontek has said the i7 extreme is the chip to go for. Typical insurance company actions. Stick to your guns. Good luck.
