Almost top of the line!

Christopher, Amazon

  • Summary: I upgraded from a 930 because I needed more speed and cores for video rendering. The improvement is very noticable. I did the research and the socket 2011 coming will have quad channel RAM, but so far that is about it.

Expensive, but worth it

Jimmy the Geek, Amazon

  • Summary: Not an inexpensive CPU, but if you're not on a tight budget, you'll get plenty of bang for these bucks! It has SIX cores, each with TWO execution modules. So when you bring up the Windows Task Manager you actually see TWELVE CPUs in the "Performance" tab!

Stable, Powerful, Hexacore Processor

William Carlin, Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: Moving from an AMD2000+ processor to an Intel Core i7-970 is like moving form a bicycle to a Space Shuttle - OMG is it powerful! I've been running it for about a month now and haven't had a single processor centric issue.

The Best Boost to Overall Compute Performance to Date

Blueticks, Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: I've been building computers (as a hobby) for the last 15 years and must say I was amazed how much faster my i7 950 was over my AMD 1090T. However, I'm really amazed by the overall performance boost when I purchased the i7 970 6-core (12 if you include the logical cores) processor.

Why buy this so late in game?

Michael M., Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: The Intel Core i7 970... with Socket 1366 phasing out, lacking an unlocked multiplier, AMD's Bulldozer now here and Ivy Bridge around the corner, one wonders the logic behind buying this processor at this stage of the CPU game?

A beast

Glenn, Amazon
1 November 2010
  • Summary: I'd you're on the LGA 1366 platform and disappointed by its short production lifespan, this CPU makes sense. I previously had the i7-950, a four core which I was able to OC to 4.0 24/7 stable with H/T on.

Überraschend gut!

M. Rangger, Amazon
27 April 2012
  • Summary: Als erstes muss ich gleich sagen ich bin kein Hardcore Gamer! Meine Arbeitsbereiche liegen im Office und Bildbearbeitungssektor. Da Photoshop ja durchaus mit mehreren Threads umgehen kann entschied ich mich nun doch den Prozessor zu probieren und wurde nicht enttäuscht.
