Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel Core i7-3960X Review - Intel Core i7-3960X Review
Mon, November 14 2011 | 4:37PM | PermaLink Feedback?

We've been waiting patiently and now LGA2011 is finally here, so we'll take a look at the range topping Core i7-3960X. To bring you swiftly up to speed, in November 2007 Intel released the first 45nm architecture, the Tick, which was the Core 2 revision. A year later we saw a huge shift in processor capabilities with the Tock of Nehalem, the original 45nm Core-i7s and also the LGA1156 i7-870, i5-760 etc. This was refined with the Tick of the Westmere die-shrink down to 32nm which we saw as both the LGA1366 i7-970, i7-980 and i7-990. The next Tock we saw was Sandy Bridge which introduced the LGA1155 socket and 32nm i7-2600Ks and the like.
