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

HotHardware
12 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Conversely, if you're the kind that likes to overclock your CPUs, the new Core i7-970 represents a better value and will allow you to pocket some extra green and along with that will likely come much of the extra overclocking headroom that you'd realize by taking a Core i7-980X up a few notches.  There are only two caveats to consider here, however.  First, the Core i7-970 is multiplier locked above its stock 24X and Turbo Boost speed (3.46GHz).
  • Pros: Killer Performance, Great Overclocker, 6-Cores, Yay, Compatible With Existing Mobos
  • Cons: Still Very Pricey, 6-Core Resources Wasted With Some Workloads
