Intel Core i7-970 Processor Review, Lower Cost 6-Core

HotHardware
6 August 2010
  • Excerpt: There's little question, like the sun rising and setting each day, that when Intel launches their latest top-of-the-line processor, a stinging four-figure price point awaits.  It seems like forever that Intel's latest flagship desktop chips drop into the market at anywhere from $999 - $1100 or so at their time of launch.  Obviously, for many mainstream users, that's the price of an entire system and monitor and they just don't need all that much CPU horsepower.
  • Pros: Killer Performance, Great Overclocker, 6-Cores, Yay, Compatible With Existing Mobos
  • Cons: Still Very Pricey, 6-Core Resources Wasted With Some Workloads

  • Excerpt: Six cores, 12 threads, one billion transistors and a whole lotta processing power. That's the Intel Core i7 970. It's a fabulous technological achievement. But can it really be worth nearly £700?

Intel Core i7 970 CPU Review

KitGuru
5 August 2010
  • Excerpt: 4 Flares 4 Flares × The Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition is the most powerful CPU we have tested at KitGuru and while it still holds the enthusiast market performance crown, not many can afford the £850+ asking price. I have received quite a few emails recently asking if we were going to review the Core i7 970 processor and this week we have made time to fit it into our busy schedule.

Core i7 970: 2e processeur six coeurs d'Intel

Clubic
20 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Ce nouveau Core i7 970, complète de fort belle manière la gamme Core i7 d'Intel avec notamment de solides performances et une excellente propension à l'overclocking. Il a de plus le mérite d'offrir un deuxième choix en matière de processeurs sextuple-cœurs dans la gamme grand public du fondeur. Si nous appelions de nos vœux une descente en gamme du sextuple-cœurs chez Intel, la sortie du Core i7 970 est un premier pas… qui reste hélas bien timoré.
  • Pros: Excellent processeur, Propension à l'overclocking, Excellentes performances
  • Cons: Hélas bien trop onéreux, Inaccessible pour le plus grand nombre
