Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Corsair Explores Lynnfield and P55 - Corsair Explores Lynnfield and P55
Mon, November 23 2009 | 9:08PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The Intel combination of the Core i7 Nehalem based Bloomfield processors and the X58 chipset has been quite a success. Intel has decided to build upon that success with a new offering of processors and a new chipset.
Intel has just introduced the new Lynnfield class of CPUs which at this time includes the Core i7 870 and 860 CPUs and the Core i5 750 CPU. These CPUs share the same core architecture as the 9** series Core i7 CPUs but, they are coupled with a dual channel integrated memory controller, or IMC as opposed to the triple channel controller on the 9** series. These CPUs have a different socket design with 1156 contacts as opposed to the 1366 contacts on the 9** series. They are designed to operate with the Intel P55 Express chipset."
"The Lynnfield and P55 combination is an excellent alternative for users considering a more cost effective solution than the Bloomfield and X58 offerings. Lynnfield specific memory kits, CPUs, and P55 based motherboards should hit lower price points than their counterparts for Bloomfield/X58 while still maintaining excellent performance and bang per buck value. 8GB of memory is more affordable than ever and the new Corsair dual channel Lynnfield kits are the perfect compliments to Lynnfield and P55 systems.
