Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Core i7 940, 920 and 965 Extreme Edition - Core i7 940, 920 and 965 Extreme Edition
Mon, November 03 2008 | 2:27AM | PermaLink Feedback?
The Core i7 940 and 920 processors come clocked at 2.93GHz and 2.66GHz respectively, while they both boast a 256KB L2 cache along with an 8MB shared L3 cache. The L3 cache is shared among the four cores, and it is worth mentioning that so far all three Core i7 processors are quad-core parts. However, these new processors will support 8-threads simultaneously thanks to the implementation of Hyper-Threading technology. Furthermore, the on-die memory controller supports triple-channel DDR3-800/1066 memory, while the QuickPath interface of the 940 and 920 processors supports a throughput of 4.8 GT/s. This means that the Core i7 processors will have a peak memory bandwidth of 32GB/s at their disposal and, unlike the Core 2 processors, they are designed to be able to use it. When you think about it 32GB/s is a staggering throughput, especially when considering that a Core 2 processor using the 333MHz FSB was limited to a little less than 11GB/s.
