I bought my i7 920 soon after it was release. It was combined with an ASUS P6T motherboard and 6GB of Corsair Dominator 1600 Mhz RAM. On release the i7 was a complete game changer for the CPU market, giving a huge performance increase over similarly priced Intel Core 2 Quads. The biggest change was integrating parts of the North Bridge (a chip that controls the RAM and other components) into the CPU so the RAM connects directly with the CPU greatly increasing speed. Another change was the reintroduction of Hyperthreading, allowing this 4 core cpu to act as an 8 core cpu. In terms of real life performace, I have yet to come across an application ...

The Intel I7 range is undoubtedly a leap in CPU technology. In benchmarks no other processor range can come close to these much awaited processors. I bought mine when constructing a new build PC for my parents. I bought this product in its retail packaging in order to get the proprietary heatsink included in the package. On paper this processor is incredibly power and I was not disappointed with the power contained on this tiny chip. Over the years Intel have been researching how to integrate more and more functions onto the CPU chip. This processor is the culmination of it research. Unlike in previous intel computers the processors has the memory controller ... Read the complete review

Core i7 is the newest Quad core CPU from intel, its top end and as a result expsenive yet efficient. I opted for the 920 at a semi-reasonable price, compared to the quicker, yet more pricey 940 or Extreme edition. With more cores and too many features to list (google it) the Core i7 is intel's finest core yet. With rave reviews and recommendations, I chose the Core i7 over my previously favoured manufacturer (AMD). As anyone who knows anything about customer loyalty will know, it takes alot to steal loyal customers and AMD have served me well over the years. However, it cannot be denied that Intel are now the market leader once again. The boxed version ... Read the complete review
