Intel Core i7-950 Review
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.
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.
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.
