All the results point out that the Sandy Bridge family of CPUs are indeed, SUPER FAST! With “just” four cores and eight logical threads, our Core i7 2600K got very close to the Core i7-980X ‘Gulftown’ processor (Intel’s current flagship, with 6 cores and 12 threads) in some multithreading tests carried out using air coolers.
We also obtained impressive results from the SuperPi 1M benchmark. Equipped with just an air-cooler (HSF) and overclocked to 5.4 GHz, Sandy Bridge finished the calculation in less than 7 seconds! Compared to previous Intel Processors, like the Core i6 661 (Clarkdale) that needs to be bumped up to 6.4 GHz to get similar results, the new Sandy Bridge architecture is obviously way ahead in terms of performance.
Simply said, Intel’s Sandy Bridge family of CPUs seems to be blessed with high performance levels and remarkable overclockability. We have finished writing an article on these wonderful new processors. Be sure to check out JagatReview.com for the complete review!
