Intel's new Core i7 3960X is the latest implementation of the Sandy Bridge CPU architecture and promises outstanding performance in multi-threaded applications, or at least the ones that can use 12 threads at once. It's the top-end processor of Intel's new flagship Sandy Bridge-E platform, with a price equally fitting for large ships. Hitting the market at just under one thousand bucks at launch, one will need to be dead serious if they want the latest in multi-threaded performance. Hit our own review to see if the Core i7 3960X is just as serious at what it does best:

@Leochan - Nice review but.....

On the 10th page, it says you're testing Farcry 2 and Dirt 2....But the descriptions are for Warhead and Lost Planet respectively (and in the settings for the Dirt2/Lost Planet description on the same page, the resolutions are flipped around from 800x600 to 600x800) >_>

Maybe my next rig will be Core i7 3930K based (the cheaper of the two 6 core CPUs). Less L2 memory sucks a bit, but it is significantly cheaper. Of course, by the time I build a new computer a whole new line of CPUs after these will probably have come out XD
