Today we take a look at the Core i7 975 CPU- a replacement for Intel’s previous flagship desktop CPU, the Core i7 965. It has a clock speed of 3.33GHz, which is a tad bit higher than 965’s 3.2GHz and belongs to the Extremely Expensive, I mean, Extreme Edition Club, which gives you the privilege of having its multiplier unlocked. Here is what CPU-Z shows us about the CPU

No real surprises here- we’re still on Bloomfield and still on the same socket (not something we could possibly say for the upcoming i5 platform). All that has changed from the 965 is the multiplier up from 24x to 25x and a new stepping. Lets find out how the Core i7 975 compares to other CPUs such as the 965 as well as AMD’s Phenom II.

We’ve used the ASUS Rampage II Extreme motherboard with DDR3 for Intel CPUs while the AMD platform was benched with DDR2 and on an ASUS 790GX chipset based board. Both platforms had the GTX280 as their VGA card and a 1000W Corsair PSU.

    Why Phenom II X4 940??

    why not 955 BE, with DDR 3 rams?

    Even so, I don’t think Phenom II X4 955 BE with DDR3 could touch that i7 975 EE. I believe that the closest Intel the Phenom II could touch was the i7 920, but the i7 920 can still do well because of its HT -in multi-core intensive applications.
