Intel Core i7 3960X is a best processor as i know about it, One would think that the Sandy Bridge as a model of success and a boon for Intel will be celebrated, but before you let yourself be carried away with this statement, we must look at the other side of the coin. Because of its catapult launch and the lack of competition from AMD, the Sandy Bridge competes primarily with Intel's own six-core Westmere architecture of the models on the base 1366th.
The bad thing about it is, above all, that in many benchmarks, the Sandy Bridge with its four cores, six cores with the Westmere flies away, a problem that is primarily expressed financially. After all, was and is the hexa-core Westmere is many times more expensive than the price-conscious Sandy Bridge CPU that it has also got a huge overclocking potential especially the Core i7 2600K is - has become the latest "most wanted" desktop CPU, as well as the most powerful tool is Intel Core i7 3960X .
Thus it replaces the high-end socket 1366, the Westmere architecture, this so-called "Sandy Bridge E" series is, with her performance again provide the necessary distance between base 1155 and the new socket 2011th For more money there is to be here again so more power. More money means in our case, so we tested the top models of the new series, the Intel Core i7 3960X, this one has almost four times the price of a Sandy Bridge Core i7 2600K.
Intel Core i7 3960X we test with two Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards in Crossfire mode, and of course, is again Eyefinity gaming with three full-HD screens in the program, after all, even to the Sandy Bridge processor I have indeed made for hardcore gamers. Since the Intel Core i7 3960X have such a high performance Intel says will and with his quad channel memory interface neatly memory throughput offers.
Such an extreme processor will also be tested and the extreme gaming performance today in very high resolutions with the same number of screens, we want to know what this processor can be in terms of gaming and that is only in connection with neat graphics power.
The range of the new Sandy Bridge processors E falls to launch quite meager, just two processors are available on the new platform first, the Core i7 3960X, which we have here in the test. And secondly, the Core i7 3930K, and the small the moment last model, the most effective processor in the market present is Intel Core i7 3960X .
