LGA 1156 technology has completely eliminated the NB, making motherboards cooler and cheaper.
Easily attained a 40% overclock and showed significant performance gains.
Performance not that far behind the LGA 1366 i7 920.

Looking back, quad-core processors have had quite the run already. Intel's first quad-core CPU, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 was released almost three years ago, with the much more popular Q6600 following up months later at a rather steep $850. As you...-

All in all we'd have to still recommend socket 1366 to buyers with a larger budget. The extra PCI Express lanes will become increasingly important, whilst the superior upgrade path and better overclockability provide tangible benefits right now....-

I can clearly say that the test results were not what I had expected. I had assumed that the i7 920 would beat the i7 860 in most if not all tests, partially due to the triple channel memory, but mostly due to the fact that the i7 860 is intended to...100

Last week Intel introduced its highly anticipated Lynnfield processors under the Core i5 and Core i7 brands. Three chips emerged: We tested exclusively with the Core i7 870 and the Core i5 750, the 860 didn't arrive in my lab until after the review...-

Last week I gave the Core i7/i5 line of Lynnfield processors our Editors Choice award and I still feel that these CPUs, with their improved power efficiency, overclocking headroom and lower price, deserve the recognition. I set out in this article...-

So, the new platform has been launched. Is it successful? Yes, more than somewhat. If Core i7 for LGA1366 hadnt spoiled the triumph, we could have compared this situation with the transition from NetBurst to Core 2: when new Mid-End processors were...-

on INTEL’s Lynnfield If there were any doubts or initial skepticism of Lynnfield’s performance, clearly those doubts are erased today! Both Hyper and non-Hyperthreaded versions of Lynnfield are super strong performers when it comes to task...95

The Lynnfield is a worth successor to the Yorkfield. As Core i5-750 as well as Core i7-860 the new core shows that it is not inferior to the expensive Bloomfield. The performance benefit might not be as big as it had been from the Pentium D to the...-

The Lynnfield chips combination of price, performance, and power efficiency effectively clears the field in the desktop CPU market, leaving little room for competition from the Phenom II or older, cheaper Core 2 Quad processors—or even faster,...-
