Intel Core i7-950 Review

SiSoft Sandra

Straight away we can see the difference that the i7-950 has over the i7-930. Both at stock and overclocked it takes a big lead in what is normally a very tight test.

 

Processor MultiMedia

Being the most synthetic of our synthetic tests, the Sandra testing responds perfectly to the clock speed increase of the i7-950 over the i7-930. The only glitch in our testing is the Float x8 result on the i7-930 being abnormally high.

 

POV-Ray

If there is one other thing that responds to clock speed, it's Ray Tracing. POV-Ray is the excellent freeware Ray-Tracing package of choice and the i7-950 definitely gets the job done.

With the recent price-drop of the i7-950 we felt it was time to take a look at the middle child of the LGA1366 range.

Best deals right now for 950 are 223 vs 212 best for 930. *No brainer.

Just letting you know looking forward to your OC guide. Probably like the zillionth time you've heard that, take your time ill be happy whenever its done. ^^"

from the videos seems like its taken alot of work and is gonna take even more but maybe it can accompany some sort of print out\text aswell aswell as the video, but i wouldn't really know how it would work.

good luck
