I am trying to figure out any differences between the two models' logic boards. Their specs seem to be pretty much equivalent... Anyone know what's going on under the hood?

I haven't pulled them out to compare, but the Q650 and Q800 have different ROMs, since the C650 and Q800 were released together, and the Q650 was released latter as a bump.

Interesting, have you tried benchmarking them to see any differences? I am wondering if there's any way to physically tell them apart. I haven't found much info. on them, but the specs appear to be very similar.

Benchmarking which, the Q650 and the Q800? I haven't benchmarked those two, I don't actually have a Q650, just the C610, C650, and Q800.

Based on the ERSes and such, I think they're pretty much equivalent aside from the differing ROMs and differing VIA machine ID jumpers.
