At the end of last week some slides of a presentation made by Intel and its partners on the services that the manufacturer expects to have been published online. In particular, they shall contain information about the Core i7 Extreme Edition-3960X, top model with six core operating frequency of 3.3 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.9 GHz, 15 MB L3 cache and support for HyperThreading technology, compared with the current Core i7 Extreme Edition LGA1366-990X.

By the battery of tests that includes benchmark as Cinebench 11.5, Povray 3.7, 3DMark 11, Pro-Show Gold 4.5, SPECint_rate base2006, SiSoft SANDRA SPECfp_rate base2006 and 2011B show that the Core i7 Extreme Edition-3960X can offer more than 47% performance more on average. Intel says the boost in performance is due to the rise of the CPI that increased memory bandwidth (+33% through the use of a bus quad-channel DDR3) and the new AVX instruction set capable of accelerating video encoding.
