POSTER: computer news   ||   INTEL CORE I 7-940 REVIEW


The overclock performance data of bloomfield processors began to appear. Since core i7 processors are the representatives of the new nehalem architecture , the built-in memory controller will help to raise speed in the appropriate applications, the presence of hyper-Threading technology will allow to accelerate multi-threaded applications, but games can not demonstrate a explosive increase in comparison with core 2 Quad processors .

Associate reported some results which compare the processors core i 7-940 (2.93 GHz) and Core 2 Extreme QX9770 (2.93 GHz) in many applications.

core i 7-940 bench

Associates used the engineering model core i 7-940 (2.93 GHz), based on B0 stepping. It is completely possible that the series processors will show a higher speed level ; therefore results in question should not be assumed as final.

core i 7-940 bench

For simplification in the results analysis we give below the boost value in the selected applications after transfer from yorkfield to bloomfield processor:

  • SuperPi - > 19.3%;
  • WinRAR 3.71 - > 77.3%;
  • Fritz chess benchmark - > 29%;
  • Everest memory (Copy) - > 149,7%;
  • CineBench - > 25.7%;
  • TMPGEnc 4.5 - > 8%;
  • 3DMark06 CPU - > 13.9%;
  • 3DMark vantage CPU - > 50.5%;
  • Half life 2-> 2.3%;
  • World In conflict - > 6.7%;
  • May's Devil Cry 4-> 5.1%.

corei7 vs yorkfiled

In two games, Call of duty 4 and company of heroes, the processor core i 7-940 lose over their predecessor by 8.6% and 7.2% . In the remaining cases the confident superiority of this new architecture is observed. The intensive boost is observed in multithreaded applications memory bandwidth hungry application . Games, as it was assumed, demonstrate only a moderate increase in the performance.

Now here is the detailed info :


  • Intel Core 2 QX9770 (344x8.5=2.93 GHz ,12 Mb L2 Cache)
  • Intel Core 2 QX9770 (400x8=3.2 GHz ,12 Mb L2 Cache)
  • Intel Core i7 Extreme 940 (2.93 GHz , 8MB L3 Cache)

Motherboard :

  • Intel X48
  • Intel X58


  • DDR3-1333Mhz 1GB x2
  • DDR3-1333Mhz 1GB X3

Video card :

  • Geforce Gtx 260 (576/1998/1242)


  • Seagate SATA 500 GB

Operating system and Driver:

  • Windows Vista ultimate SP1
  • Video Driver : Forceware 177.98
  • Intel Chipset :

Super Pi and winrar :

Super pi is based on the processor cache (and memory for large calculation) while winrar love tide timing and high memory bandwidth , In both case the CPU power also play a large role . Winrar in this case do not miss the occasion to show the large gain from the integrated 3 channel memory controller (this will be confirmed also in memory bandwidth tests)


Fritz Chess Benchmark is a multi-threaded benchmark which measure the CPU power . The performance noted above is relative to P3 (480 Kilo Nodes Per Second) . Multi-threading help nehalem processor in this benchmark .

And here as it was expected the memory bandwidth is huge with nehalem generation processors , thanks to the three channel integrated memory controller .

CInebench belong to the rendering tests category : higher core number will result in better result , The 4 virtual cores boost the nehalem processor score while the performance in the single core regime is almost identical to the QX9770 ( 5 % only boost)

Some encoding and 8 % performance boost .

3D 2006 overall score do now any significant boost since it is based mainly on the video card .

And here the CPU test come with over 13 % increase .

The Core i7 940 CPU score just fly . And again thanks to hyper-threading .

Overall score was boosted by the CPU score (check above)

For gamer as show the picture above , CPU's do no play a big role ( it is better to update the video card for better gaming ) . But let us note the small boost from nehalem CPU in some games , Note Core i7 loose over older Yorkfiled in 2 Games .

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS YOU FOOOOOLS!!!!!!!!!!! : http://www.guru3d.com/article/core-i7-multigpu-sli-crossfire-game-performance-review/19

Core i7 is faster than Core 2 , but i am pretty sure that no one will own a 3 way SLI system with 3xGTX280 + Core i7 extreme and run sub 1920x1200 resolution . So in those charts u have to look for 1920x1200+ .In this case the difference between all the three system is minimal or almost null .

Dont get it.

i7 core using single card Quad core is tiny little abit better... but if your using SLI or Crossfire than i7 core beats the QuadCore / Core2Duo based on FPS

Thanks for the review , it helps me decide between 920 & 940 ;) OCZ Mod
