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...-

1090T and 1055T are the first real hexa-cores which is in reach of 99% enthusiasts, since Intel’s 980X retails for around 1000$(more than Rs. 55000 in Indian retail market), though if you are looking at purely performance numbers then I am sure...-

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...-

We tried to make our tests at least a tad more interesting by using different memory modes -- and we found out that this parameter does not affect results. The only result that stands out against the common background is demonstrated by Core i7 920,...-

This processor cost a bit more than the average one on the market. The Core i7 has been quite expensive to be honest and therefore Intel is releasing a Core i5 to be a more middle class cpu that people can afford. The Core i7 920 will apparently...-

With the recent Bloomfield product line Intel presents the most powerful desktop CPU available these times. Especially the Core i7 975 XE delivers more performance than any other CPU on the market and this by a quite big margin. But as expected, so...-

Well, Ill start off by apologizing to AMD and our readers for some of the conclusions I drew from the Cyberpower Gamer Dragon review. I deserve a good measure of blame for rationalizing the difference that we saw when comparing a machine with Radeon...-

About a few months ago Intel let us review their Core 2 Quad Q9400 processor. This time they were generous enough to send us the new Core i7 920 45nm Nehalem processor. While the Core 2 Quad Q9400 ran on the older LGA 775 socket, the new Core i7...-

Despite the shortcomings that our engineering samples had, we were still extremely impressed with the performance of the Intel i7 920. The overclocking ability of the chip alone makes it a must have. Reports across the internet of the new D0 stepping...-
