    Read The Review Here
    _______________
    Nehalem EP used the same D0 core as that found in the new 920 which left the top performing 965 processor on the older C0 revision. Rather than change the CPU to bring it up to date Intel are once again pushing the market forward with the release of the Core-i7 975 Extreme Edition and we will be putting it through its paces in a selection of mainly real world tests to establish how much of an improvement it is over the existing models in the range.

    Probably exceeds 1000 euro/dollar/pounds... Kinda outta my budget. ;)

    But it's always nice to read a good review about it. :)

    awesome performance. I can't believe how far ahead Intel are in regards to media encoding.

    Great review and another nice CPU from Intel. Overclocks well and the temps are decent even with air cooling.

    very nice:). cept u arent kicking its ass as it reached a higher oc than yours did... i may be wrong but isnt it(the 975) a tad faster when all settings are equal?
    for the price tho think i like your result better.

    lol.

    I saw the 975 for as low as 870 euros, way cheaper than I had expected. Still expensive though for a cpu. ^^

    quite a few people emailed me saying they would be buying one, so there is certainly quite an audience for a high end CPU, perhaps more so on Driverheaven due to our high income audience.

    Our 4524mhz on the 975 was 24/7 stable and not on ice... I did go higher but we only publish stable OCs. The 975 is a great CPU and as good as your 920 is there is no way its getting anywhere near it :D
