Core i7 930 @ Stock and @ 200x21 for Overclocking
At stock the 930 has the little advantage we'd expect to see from the extra 140MHz clock speed. However there is obviously a benefit from the refined process as this advantage remains in the overclock tests.
Lavalys Everest shows that this is most certainly not a freak set of circumstances. Again the stock result has the benefit of the extra clock speed, but this remains even when both processors are overclocked to the same level. Considering that the 920 needs an extra 0.1v to achieve this, it really shows how advanced the 930 is.
wPrime, which performs a similar test to Super Pi again shows that the 930, even at identical clock speeds to the 920, has enough benefit to outperform its predecessor.
