Intel announced their latest processor series, codenamed Devil's Canyon, at its keynote in Computex 2014 earlier today. Representing the updated Haswell "K" series parts, the latest Core i7 processor is the first Core microprocessor to hit the 4.0GHz mark since the Pentium 4.
The Sandy Bridge-E is the first-ever consumer processor (as well as its platform) to support a quad-channel DDR3 memory architecture. We attempt to find out how much performance impact you would notice if toggling between different memory channel modes (dual, triple and quad) and memory frequency.
The 3960X Extreme Edition CPU is the top model of the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 series and is clocked at 3.3GHz with turbo speeds up to 3.9GHz. Features quad-channel memory support, 40-lane PCIe controller and comes unlocked for overclockers. Find out if it delivers!
Designed solely for the Core i7 Socket LGA1366 market, the Evercool Buffalo CPU cooler is a refresh of a design that has already seen service on the LGA775 and AMD platforms. We check out if the LGA1366 version is good enough for your high-end Core i7 system.
