The Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition features 4-cores and runs at 3.20GHz, it also has a QPI (QuickPath Interface) throughput of 6.4GT/s, so it will be interesting to discover what kind of impact this has on performance. The Core i7 965 Extreme Edition for example offers a feature called “Turbo Mode”. When enabled, this allows the user to designate an individual multiplier to each of the four processor cores.

Starting with the basics, our general performance tests showed strong bandwidth gains when increasing the memory clock frequency. However, the WinRAR performance test and CINEBENCH seemed to find DDR3-1333 memory to be the sweet spot rather than the...

There is no doubt in our minds that the Core i7 is a worthy successor of what was one of Intel’s greatest processor series yet. Already the Core i7 has proven to be extremely powerful, as it easily put away the Core 2 Quad Q9650 in almost every...

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 is definitely more expensive than any other on the market with a price of 1000$ but if you want to be on top you better be prepared to pay up. The performance of this processor is excellent. I have had both a X6800 and a QX6700 which...

Just like the rest of Intels Core i7 range, the 965 Extreme 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...

Perhaps you were expecting the next generation of Intel processors to come in a different package; maybe you were hoping for eight cores or something equally huge and were disappointed to see a quad-core clocked at a generous but not extraordinary...

Because the Core i7 isnt just a "Penryn" Core 2 Duo with some L3 and an integrated memory controller, the present review focuses primarily on measuring how well Nehalems performance scales in multithreaded workloads as compared to Penryn. If Intel...

From this we can take home the fact that the Core i7 has started out as a good overclocker. Getting to the sweet spots wasnt really difficult and all this achieved on the stock air cooling solution provided by Intel and stock core voltages. We feel...
