Intel Core i7 and Gaming

You might have heard about intel processors. Intel launches the Core i7, the successor of the Core 2 processor and it is both more efficient and more effective than its predecessor. I want to build up my own gaming pc and for that I wondering about Core i7. Whether this system will be best for should I go for AMD for some cost effective support. What are your recommendations.

Re: Intel Core i7 and Gaming

The Core i7 platform for desktop is initially available in versions 2.66 GHz, 2.93 GHz and 3.2 GHz. What I found after reading some articles on this cpu is that the QX9770 overclocked to 3.2 GHz is better than the Core i7. All models are standard equipped with a lock overclocking. The new integrated memory controller allows a flow much more than anything we have experienced in the past and will in fact even more than the products of AMD.

Re: Intel Core i7 and Gaming

Due to the integration of memory controller within the processor, the Core i7 now contains links to memory modules. This difference in size comes with a drawback. This is there is space between the holes for mounting the radiator and the same is now increased. This simply means that the radiator must be larger than the old bindings and no longer suitable. Therefore, the Core 2 coolers become incompatible with Core i7 motherboards and vice verse.

Re: Intel Core i7 and Gaming

A motherboard for Core i7 is not more expensive than a motherboard for core2 quad depending on the model but less potent against the core i7 is more efficient than the most powerful quad core2 especially about memory ram passing tri-channel for i7 but not more expensive than the dual-channel. I came to know that the 775 motherboard is not worth taking, a Core i7 quads 9650 for a long time does fit well.

The new processor core I7 has four hearts for the 720 and 820 and they are perfectly adapted for intensive application work. All recent games, multimedia, photo editing and video software will work on this system with or without the support of a GPU. If you want a more high end processor then you can go for Core i7 980X which has more cores for better speed and support.

Re: Intel Core i7 and Gaming

Core i7 is a nice processor and it is much better. Basically the system which I purchased and motherboard which was recommended with this comes with 501 video memory support. So that makes almost all types of game to work on this. Even if you add a gpu then your system becomes much more stronger. It depends on you which to choose. Basically there are low end configuration also.

Re: Intel Core i7 and Gaming

Motherboards equipped with the X58 chipset and new socket LGA 1366 for the coming Intel Core i7 begin to point the tip of their nose because the output of Intel is fast approaching in the market. This is a completely new technology provided for PC. The processor is awesome with great speed and a good supported system will let you to do anything you want.
