Intel Core i7 990X Hexcore 1366

AvP and Crysis Warhead

Intel Core i7-990X 

Alien vs Predator

Such is the underlying performance of the Core i7-990X that Alien vs Predator has become GPU limited, with both the stock and overclocked 990X giving identical results. Is there a more impressive ability than that of making a factory overclocked GTX580 become the limiting factor in your rig?

Crysis Warhead

Although there are quite large variances in the maximum frame-rates, the 990X manages to keep the average frame-rate very high indeed. Although the performance of the 2600K cannot be overlooked as it keeps up with the X58s finest.

It is a great chip and maybe the best one from the i7 1366 famely, but the price doesn't justify the performance as it's the case in all extreme i7 CPU-s . Especially in regards to the new Sand Bridge CPU-s.

Great reviewQuote
