Intel i7 970 Review
As an alternative to PC Mark, today we're using PassMark to test our i7 970.
This is very similar to PC Mark in that it uses real world testing to benchmark your system. To emphasise the accurate nature of both Sandra and Everest, our results perfectly mimic those we achieved on the previous page. At stock the 980X has the lead, but with our overclock the i7 970 is actually quicker. When it comes to the final PassMark score, it's 400 points better which is a huge amount.
Good old wPrime really takes huge advantage of as much horsepower as you can throw at it. Sub 5 seconds for the 32M test anybody? Blazing speed indeed.
