Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition Processor Review

3 September 2013
  • Summary: Final Thoughts When we covered the Haswell launch back in June it was pretty exciting because it was a brand new microarchitecture which brought many new improvements, a new chipset with new features and that meant new motherboards as well. With Ivy Bridge-E we are just moving from a 32 nm shrink die to a 22 nm shrink die. This means the new Ivy Bridge-E chips will work on the same X79 motherboards that have been out for quite some time.
  • Pros: – Improved performance over the previous generation, – Better power consumption, – Runs cooler, – 40 PCIExpress lanes, – Quad channel memory
  • Cons: – None that I found

Test: Intel Core i7-4960X (Desktop-Prozessor)

5 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Mit dem Core i7-4960X möbelt CPU-Hersteller Intel sein absolutes Highend-Lineup auf. Der Prozessor mit dem Codenamen Ivy Bridge-E richtet sich an Profis, bietet enorme Leistung und belegt konsequent Platz 1 in der Bestenliste. Angesichts des sündteuren Preises gilt aber: Wer seinen PC für Office, Games und Multimedia nutzt, bekommt sehr viel günstigere Alternativen, die im angepeilten Umfeld vollkommen ausreichen.
  • Pros: Sehr hohe Performance, Sechs CPU-Kerne, Moderne Architektur
  • Cons: Extrem hoher Preis, Nicht ausgelastet im normalen Heim-Rechner, Hoher Stromverbrauch
