Keeping up with Sandybridge E's for half the price.

  • Summary: This cpu is competitive with cpu's from 2 generations later. That makes it one of the best buys of 2009. Today it is a great cpu to take a ageing X58 platform to its maximum potential. The bigger brothers of this cpu the 980, 980x, 990x are all well overpriced next to the 970 as of this writeup date. The 970 gives you the performance and value of a brand new system with a smaller budget. The 6 cores help to future proof it for a few more years.

Great for multi-threaded apps!

  • Summary: This is a very fast processor! 6 cores and 3.2 Ghz!! The price vs. performance ratio is much better than that of a 980x or 990x. I would recommend this to anyone who can make use of multi-threaded apps such as video editing / dvd authoring, etc.

WoW I Finaly got my dream CPU for under $400

aryehchay, Ebay

  • Summary: This CPU and , I'm sure, others like it are unbeliveble!! I have it overclocked to 4.26Ghz and ther are no snags what so ever. You have 12 threads working for you at 4.25Ghz, that's 51Ghz overall. It cut the time of rendering a 1 Hour HD video to 40 minuts, compare with i7 920 at 1 hour and 30 minuts same jobe!! Of course it needs a good MoBo and RAM to make it sing like a Pro, but it is a great item no matter what!!

Great Processor.

  • Summary: Fantastic performance all around. Multi-tasks like a champ - even better than I'd expected. I'm running handbrake right now with 18 threads and still doing at least 5 other things at once without even so much as a single hiccup. It runs fairly hot compared to the 920 it replaced, but that's to be expected. $500 is usually way more than I would spend on a processor, but this bad boy was worth it. I don't regret it at all.

I've been a Intel user for years after trying others.

  • Summary: As always Intel is the leader in uP design & this is no exception. With 6 cores it blasts through anything you can throw at it. I wonder what Intel has for future processors as this seems to be pushing the limit of manufacturing technology. Best it mated with a genuine Intel designed motherboard & fast DDR3 RAM.

I had to try 6 Cores

itizpp, Ebay
16 July 2011
  • Summary: I considered the $800. retail price tag far beyond my reasch when the 32nm 6 Core Intel CPU arrived on the scene. I do love being a power user on my personal workstation though, so, when a gray market CPU arrived at eBay I bought it for about 1/2 price. It was genuine. I was enjoying a Core i7 950 hyperthreading quad-core before the upgrade. I had a very good CPU.
