Which processor now offers the most bang of your buck varies per price segment. If you have a very small budget, in our opinion it is best to find an Intel Pentium G4560, which, given its higher availability, is less of a challenge than it was a few month...
Anyway stay tuned as I said in our previous articles, more CPUs will follow: AMD Phenom II x2AMD Phenom I x4AMD Brazos ?Intel Core i5 2500KIntel Core i3 Ivy BridgeIntel Atom ?Hey guys, which fight do you want to see next time? Feel free to leave a comment...
Throughout these benchmarks, the AMD Phenom II 955 just hasn’t been able to keep up with the i7 920. But AMD know this and it’s not intended to be the i7 920’s rival as the 955 is priced £60 less than the i7 920. (in fact even the Q...
Really good performance, Hyperthreading, Around 4Ghz overclockable, Good price/performance ratio for the CPU
Expensive system wide parts to upgrade, Runs hot
When Intel announced its awesome new Core i7 quad-core processor, we were sure it would be priced out of reach of mere mortals. After all, in raw performance terms this CPU architecture has no equals. Surely Intel can name its price? It came as a pleas...
Extremely fast, Best CPU architecture on the market
Needs almost a whole new PC, Pricey with all things considered
Just like the rest of Intels Core i7 range, the 920 has a few extra features compared to the earlier Core 2 Quad Q9.First of all, the memory controller is built into the processor rather than sitting on the motherboard, meaning Intel can make the most...
Quality quadcore performance: works well with audio, video, 3D applications, Large improvement over the previous series, Does well even with nonoptimized software, Low power consumption when idle
Power consumption is high when processor is active
The graphs show the new range of Core i7 CPUs in direct comparison to what was previously the fastest processor in the world, the Core 2 Extreme QX9770. Our testing proves conclusively that Core i7 is significantly faster clock for clock than any othe...
Just as Intel’s Core 2 has firmly established itself in the market, it is already being replaced by a completely new architecture. Unlike the switch from the Pentium 4 / Pentium D to the Core2—where the new CPUs worked as drop-in replacements on existi...
Its not often we see an entirely new processor architecture. However, Intels new Core i7 range, which until recently was referred to by its Nehalem codename, has some intriguing differences to the current Core 2 line-up. Most remarkably, Intel has...
