Intel Core i7 980X Extreme Edition

ITP.net
26 April 2010
  • Summary: Verdict: There’s no denying the 980X is an impressive beast. The only issue is that it’s still ahead of the software curve, so unless you’re already using multi-threaded software, it’s better to wait for the 980X’s price to drop before taking the plunge.
  • Pros: Insanely fast when tackling multi-threaded software, compatible with existing X58 motherboards, same TDP as older quad-core chip.
  • Cons: Expensive.

Intel Core i7 980X review

The Guru of 3D
10 March 2010
  • Summary: Well, Intel has done it again. The Core i7 980X is grand and majestic - It's their USS Enterprise, big and powerful. I quite honestly did not expect the processor to be this good. Now before we continue, I must state this, roughly a year or two ago we changed our benchmark suite drastically.

Good Gear Guide.au

  • Pros: Fast, six cores
  • Cons: Software needs to catch up with its capabilities
