Intel Core i7-3960x vs. i7-3970x: A Clash of Titans
22 January 2013
Excerpt: With the Intel Core i7-3970X taking the crown for the fastest six-core processor for the desktop market, how can this 150W TDP monster compare to its younger brother, the i7-3960X? Can the $10 difference in price justify its performance and stability?
Summary: Intel Core i7-3960X has been the fastest processors for high-performance desktop systems for an entire year. But time has come for it to step down: today Intel offers Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition.
Summary: Intel clearly has brought the 3970X Extreme Edition to the table because they can and not because they needed to do so. The previous crop of Bulldozer CPUs from AMD competed mainly against the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge line of processors and not the higher end Sandy Bridge-E ones.
Conclusion: Intel havde ikke behøvet at lancere Core i7-3970X. Deres -3960X chip var allerede den hurtigste single-socket workstation processor på markedet. Men Intel har siden Sandy Bridge-E for et år siden lanceret sin Ivy Bridge arkitektur.
