Core i7 3.2GHz processor blitzes Cinebench R10 Cinebench R10 multi-threaded score
At Intel's Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco, they are currently showing off the computational power of the soon to be released Core i7 processors. Using the Cinebench R10 benchmark, which tests a processor's ability to render an image using multi-threading, the 3.2GHz Bloomfield on display blitzed trounced the benchmark by an insane margin.
Utilising four cores and eight threads, the CPU made short work of the benchmark in just 19 seconds and scoring more than 45,800 CB points.
By contrast, Core 2 Extreme QX9770 3.2GHz can only get around 12,000 points, overclocked to 4.0 GHz only barely more than 15,000 points, less than one-third of Nehalem 3.2GHz.
It certainly looks like Intel have learnt from their mistakes with Netburst and HyperThreading, and turned Nehalem into one mean number crunching beast.
