A closer look at the Core i7-940


How does the real McCoy perform?
— 11:45 PM on December 11, 2008

We first tested a "simulated" Core i7-940 by underclocking a Core i7-965 Extreme, but we missed a couple of the "uncore" clocks, including the one that governs the L3 cache. Just how much do those clocks affect performance, and how does a real Core i7-940 perform?

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
