Intel's Core i7 4960X Ivy Bridge Extreme Processor Reviewed

Futurelooks
15 September 2013
  • Summary: Summarizing the Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge Extreme processor is like summarizing the Sandy Bridge Core i7-3960X and Haswell Core i7-4770K in to one thought. While it has a stronger core than Sandy Bridge , the Ivy Bridge and Haswell 22nm processors have very limited contact surface with current...
  • Pros: 6 Core - 12 Thread computing power, All kinds of PCIE Lane bandwidth support, Quad channel 1866MHz DDR3 support, Fastest CPU on the market, Costs slightly less for power users this time
  • Cons: Costs the usual premium, Limited thermal transfer surface and slightly hotter than previous generation, Limited chipset refresh support

Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E Review: New flagship, old flagship

TechSpot
3 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Haswell has been out in the wild for 3 months now, while Sandy Bridge-E has remained Intel’s "ultimate" desktop platform for almost 2 years.

Intel Core i7-4960X

Adrenaline
21 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Para quem possui um Core i7 3960X, não há muito sentido o upgrade pelo 4960X, a menos que os fatores consumo de energia/dissipação térmica e temperatura de operação, sejam itens a ser considerados, visto que se tratando de ganho de desempenho e grandes novidades tecnológicas, há poucos ganhos,...
  • Pros: Baixa temperatura para um processador do segmento top, Excelente opção para quem lida com edição/tratamento de imagens e vídeos, Ótimo ganho em overclock
  • Cons: Praticamente nenhuma grande evolução sobre o Sandy Bridge-E, Desempenho em games no mesmo patamar de processadores de segmentos inferiores, Seu preço não justifica o ganho sobre outras opções do mercado, especialmente para upgrade sobre o Core i7 3960X

Intel Core i7-4960X test

PC Ekspert
16 October 2013
  • Conclusion: Oni koji trebaju snagu šest fizičkih i dvanaest logičkih jezgara te visoku memorijsku propusnost svakako neće biti razočarani performansama ovoga procesora. U tu skupinu spadaju i gameri koji će znati iskoristiti njegovih 40 PCIe 3.0 stazica i upogoniti mašinu sa više grafičkih kartica.
  • Pros: Općenite i multithread performanse, smanjenje potrošnje u odnosu na istu seriju, blako povećanje IPC performansi od oko 5%.
  • Cons: Povećano zagrijavanje, slabiji OC potencijal, cijena.

  • Excerpt: Les premiers benchmarks des nouveaux processeurs haut-de-gamme Intel Ivy Bridge-E sont de sortie. Autant tuer dans l’œuf tout espoir d'y voir LE processeur à s'offrir : ces CPU sont trop chers et pas aussi performants que nous l'aurions souhaité. Explications...
  • Pros: Performances en multithread, Potentiel d'overclocking, Contrôleur mémoire débloqué
  • Cons: Trop cher..., ... et trop tard

  • Summary: Intel Core i7 4960X har været et meget spændende bekendtskab for mig, da den har kommet med både gode og dårlige scores, når det kommer til ydelsen. Det har faktisk også vist sig, at der ikke er synderligt meget at komme efter, når det kommer til dens performance i forhold til 4930K.
