Intel Core i7 970 CPU Review

SiSoft Sandra is a great benchmarking suite and one I have used for many years now. We are using the two popular CPU intensive tests, Dhrystone and Whetstone and the result being the number of executions of the suite, per second. These run entirely within the CPU and cache memory and its a good synthetic test to analyse general core efficiency.


The power of the Intel processors is clearly showcased and the various overclocked states fall into expected parameters throughout. At 4.4ghz the 1055T does put in a very good showing, even though it is seriously outclassed (and outpriced).
