Strolling Through Lynnfield: Intel's New SuperFast SuperAffordable CPU! Part 7

Updated on September 13, 2009

While the Core i7 920 would give you only a 5% faster speed via the multiplier, the newer Lynnfields can actually increase the overall speed of the processors that are active by as much as 17%! This effect varies according to each processor:

The Intel Core i7 870 with all 4 cores active stock non turbo mode runs at 2.93GHz; with all 4 cores active at turbo runs at 3.20GHz; with 3 cores active it runs at 3.20GHz; with 2 cores active it runs at 3.46GHz; and with a single core active it runs at a blazingly fast 3.60GHz.

The Intel Core i7 860 with all 4 cores active stock non turbo mode runs at 2.80GHz; with 4 cores active at turbo it runs at 3.06GHz; with 3 cores active it runs at 3.06GHz; with 2 cores active it runs at 3.33GHz; and with a single core active it runs at 3.46GHz.

The Intel Core i5 750 with all 4 cores active stock non turbo mode runs at 2.66GHz; with 4 cores active at turbo it runs at 2.93GHz; with 3 cores active it runs at 2.93GHz; with 2 cores active it runs at 3.06GHz; and with a single core active it runs at 3.20GHz.

Why did they turn off the Hyper Threading on the Intel Core i5 750! Grrrrrr. I've been steaming about that all through the writing of this Hub! Geez! What a lunchbag letdown! The Core i5 750 would be a killer CPU if it wasn't for the dropping of the Hyper Threading off the Intel cliff!

I guess that the jarring deletion of Hyper Threading off of the Intel Core i5 750 is somewhat compensated by the fact that the Core i7 870 at full turbo runs one core at 3.6 GHz which is a speed that no stock processor has ever reached before!

As I never tire of stating, I have little interest in gaming. I use my computer to make a living and to surf the web. Most of the applications I run would be perfectly at home and just about as snappy on any plain vanilla 2002 issue single core CPU with a couple of GB of RAM. The only application which I use each and every single day and which on slower computers had become the thorn in the side of my entire life is Adobe Photoshop CS4.

Unless you are an avid user of Adobe Photoshop CS4, there is no way that I can possibly explain the overwhelming and massive frustration you will experience if you are foolhardy enough to try and run this CPU and RAM pig on anything but the most advanced state of the art computer system.

My Core i7 920 with 12 GB of RAM, 1 TB RAID 1, and VelociRaptor Boot Drive was specifically designed by me to be the best Adobe Photoshop CS4 machine that any reasonable (read that non multi millionaire) computer enthusiast prosumer could possibly own. I wanted the ultimate performance out of my Adobe Photoshop CS4, and I got it in spades.
