Very impressive, heat added. I'm sure this processor was double this price or more a couple of months ago.

will this go into any laptop???

It had a price cut at the end of August.

That it did, but I doubt you'll have seen it lower than this price anywhere before. At this price point it does somewhat hamper the i7 920, 930, 860

I got i7 930 for this price last month.................wish I have waited for this, its a great price

heat given
#5
cracking price for an awesome processor. these were in excess of £500 when the x58 processors launched and has a significant bump in speed over the 920 and 930. should overclock pretty well on top of all that. heat added
#6
I have a p55 board with i5 and ive been trying to decide since august if i should move to a x58 with a 950 or buy the more expensive 870 on the same socket as my board and save the £150+ for a new x58 board, both the i7 870 and 950 where £450 around a month back.

I expect a complete computer for that price............

I have an old e5200 and looking for a faster kit.... I'm quite tempted, but these quad cores are still a bit expensive.

****. Anyway don't bother with LGA1366 as Sandy Bridge is coming with it's own slot.

i7 are better than quad cores?
#11
Getting cheaper & cheaper. So I guess it's a hot deal.

Strictly personally speaking, the trouble is, for what I use my PC for, the fractions of a milli-second I'd save on opening my email just doesn't mean so much to me.
Not when I'd have to start all over again with my PC.
Core 2 Duo seemed a big leap, Quad core was a handy update once the Quad chips got cheap.
I suspect I'll be using my Q6700 PC for some time yet.
#12
Good price, but who needs the power when the software is not up to it.....

It is a quad core and its better than the old quad cores.

wow - expect a super slow computer then.

Yes.
i7 is a true Quad Core chip.
Core 2 Quad is 2x Core 2 Duo's on a single chip.

I agree.
My 4GHz E8400 doesn't seem to slow down - sometimes I wish it would just so I can have an excuse to upgrade...
Maybe when more 32nm or 8 core chips come out :p

well you might be just using MS word, checking your email and a little light surfing -but others do need/want processors like this (I for one).
#16
Might go cheaper once sandy bridge arrives in january.
#17
been this price a few time on the today only section, or bundled with memory or a mobo, which would effectively make it the same price as this, have some heat anyways.

It is a quad core and its better than the old quad cores.


Anyone know if I can just straight swap this with my current core 2 duo, or is it a different chipset thus meaning a new motherboard?
#19
I have the original 920 d0 stepping version and very pleased with its performance.
With decent cooling solution I am sure it can be OCed to at least 4Ghz without a problem, will this beat a 950 at stock clock? i.e. It is not necessary for me to spend any cash to get a boost in performance, yeah?

Nope, all i7 9 series come in LGA1366 socket which is physically different from previous C2D socket. Plus it require DDR3 instead of your DDR2 ram

Yup depends on your current mobo, and seing as it is c2d you will need a new mobo that is LGA 1366

Looks like I'll have to get an older quad then. Thanks guys.

Which member of the i5 family do you have? I've got the i5 750 (Mild 3.2ghz OC most of the time) and don't feel I am in any way CPU limited. If I was going to upgrade it would be an SSD, or possibly replace my ATI 5850 next year.

Having said that, I know I should have gone X58 in the first place but with the extra processor/motherboard/RAM costs my build was spiraling out of control.

When this is HAL:F this price I'll be interested.
You can get SIX cores off AMD as fast as this for £60 less.
#25
I got one of these when they first dropped in price from scan, but I got mine in the "Today Only" section bundled with a Gigabyte x58A-UDR3-Rev 2 mobo £320.

Very happy with it, have mine OC'd to 4Ghz on Air, and there is still plenty of headroom for more, and my temps are good!!

would recommend this CPU...
#26
It's a new motherboard, and possibly ram as I'm not sure you'd get one with DDR2 ram. I don't need one of these yet so i've not been paying too much attention.

It's easy to decide: do you use any apps that could make use of Intel's hyperthreading feature? If not then you will see basically no improvement whatsoever going from an i5 7XX to an i7 8XX or 9XX.

If you're just using the PC for gaming then definitely stick with the i5. It's more than enough CPU power for any game out there and you'd gain nothing whatsoever from your 'upgrade'.

edit: This is based on the assumption that you have an i5 7XX and not an i5 6XX obviously.

Im still on P4 3.0ghz. Yeah its slow and only older games work, but for everything else e.g browsing, emulation, jukebox, p2p, word, media playing etc its more than fine. I would like one of these new behemoths but I cant justify the money, im more of a console gamer anyway and my PC is still fine for a revisit of COD 1-2, HL2, Counter Strike if I so wish.

Im probably gonna run these PCs until they break, and I have had my emachines E4026 for 6 years and my Advent T9000 for 8 years. Apart from the occasional re installation or backup disc they have been great. This idea that PCs and other electronics break after 2 years or become useless makes no sense to me.

Yeah me too if I'm honest.
I'll wait until the new 12 cores Intel and AMD come out, then these (and their almost-as-expensive motherboards) halve in price.
