Intel Core i7-3960X Review

Alien vs Predator

We finish off with a couple of games, starting with the Giger inspired Alien vs Predator. Given how reliable this produces a 60 frame average on our GTX570, hitting 62FPS on the i7-3960X is more impressive than it sounds.

Far Cry 2

Although it doesn't come close to the extra performance of the overclocked FX8150, as it shouldn't because we're at stock, against both the stock 2500K and FX8150, as well as our GPU testing standard 4GHz i7-950, the Core i7-3960X triumphs.

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