CPU Benchmarks

If there is one thing the i7-950 doesn't have it's the new instruction set we've seen on some of the latest Intel chips. Understandably as it's not a 2010 model. However it still pumps out consistent scores across our battery of CPU tests. Time to see how the memory fares.


Memory Benchmarks and Latency

Memory testing is a more fragile process. The slightest background task can make a blip. Even allowing for this the differences between the i7-950 and i7-930 are greatly lessened compared to the CPU results. The overclocked i7-930 actually leaps a bit ahead thanks to the larger BCLK needed to achieve the lesser overclock.

In our latency testing the i7-950 holds sway and, when overclocked, by quite a margin.
