Intel finally updated their Core i7 family and introduced two new solutions that feature not only higher clock frequency, but also have new D0 processor stepping. So, the new processors can boast not only better performance but also certain advantages during overclocking, improved heat dissipation and power consumption.
The results obtained in PCMark Vantage are hardly unexpected. Higher frequency of the top Core i7 models didn’t change anything: they remained unattainable for anyone, just like they used to be before. Neither Core 2 Quad, nor Phenom II X4 can get even close to Core i7-950 and i7-975.
