  • Conclusion: The Intel Core i7-4960X processor updates the CPU architecture to the 22nm-based Ivy Bridge, but makes precious few additional changes.
  • Pros: The fastest consumer processor money can buy for multi-threaded workloads. Asus makes a great motherboard now that Intel has killed its own manufacturing division.
  • Cons: Lacks support for latest Haswell features. Not the fastest chip for single-threaded tasks. Not compatible with Intel-manufactured motherboards.
