Finally we have the latest range of Intel CPUs available to us. Do they keep up the performance levels of previous generations?

Wow. Just.. wow. I agree with the Turbo-only mode being a tad obnoxious though. But, otherwise quite nice looking chips and awesome vids. Thanks mucho!

Excellent review Tom. The benefits of 32nm are outstanding, and one wonders why they didn't re-fab the i7 and i5-7xx chips last year when i3 came out. Capacity I suppose. You gotta love those numbers for power consumption and temperatures.

Bulldozer is going to have to be really good for AMD to stay in the market.

^^^Really good, or reeeeally cheaper. They don't have much threshold to work with, seeing these intel prices now. It's going to get good. Thanks guys for the reviews, I know it was a ton of work. Looking forward to more.

Great review Tom! You seem to be one of the few that took the time to test these stock and overclocked
