Intel Core i7-3960X Review

wPrime 95

Always a stiff test of the calculative powers of your setup, wPrime95 shows the enormous amounts of horsepower the Core i7-3960X provides. The 32M result is second only to the huge overclocks on the 2600K and 990X. When compared to the stock processors it's no contest.

x264 Benchmark

The x264 benchmark measures how fast it's possible to encode some HD footage using, unsurprisingly, the x264 codec. The clip it uses is, for download size reasons, only 30 seconds long. so whilst we only have 2 extra frames encoded per second when compared to the i7-970, this can quickly add up with a more realistic size film.

Great review Tom. SB-E is totally awesome. Wish I had the budget to build a SB-E system. One can always dream? Quote
