Super Potency of Intel Corei7-980X 32nm 6Cores match EVGA X58 4WAY
 
In the remembrance, the Core 2 Duo double-core processor was just announced by Intel at the Grand-Hotel in July 2006.
After around a half-year later, Intel started Quad-Core era, which was following Core 2 Due structure to make Core 2 Quad CPU.

After that, Intel launched Core i7 to enhance its performance with L3, HT and triple- channel functions in November 2008,
even if Core i7 was based on Quad-core and simulated with Octa-core (eight-core) in use,
but the market was still look forward to hearing from real Hexa-Core (six-core) CPU.

After all, the real Hexa-Core CPU was released by Intel in March 16, 2010,
meaning the generation was completed replaced by the era of Hexa-Core CPU.

The first Hexa-Core CPU was named Core i7-980X Extreme Edition and the specs. is not only have Hyper-Threading,
supports Turbo Boost, but supports un-locked frequency.
The best frequency can reach to 3.6GHz. Moreover, the Entity of the Hexa-Core comes with Hyper-Threading technology,
it can be up to 12-threading, abbreviated as 6C/12T, 32 nm processing, with 12MB of L3 cache.
Above all, the Hexa-Core CPU shows the best standards at present.

Hereinafter referred to as 980X EE, 980X EE belongs to LGA 1366-pin family,
which supports X58 chipsets, and thereís no difference from the Non-Hexa-Core i7 on the surface.


Difference with past Core i7 edition from the back of Core i7-980X EE


Enclosed inside Cooler is the different from the past edition.


There are 4 copper pipes in the bottom in addition to enhance spreading the heat.


As regards Mother Board segment, EVGA is very popular in USA and Europe portion recently,
X58 4 Classified - Way SLI is the highest version in their product line, EVGA should put out edition of USB3/SATA3 in the future.


The tone of black and red match pretty well and quite showy


7 X PCIe X16/X8 is greatest selling point in this kind of X58, to build
NF200 chip inside to support supreme SLI 4 - WAY display cards too


The black heat sink is the south bridge ICH10R inside
There are 8 SATAII device inside for expanding


Triple channel is particular in X58, there are 2 kits DIMM altogether can be expanded to DDR3 24GB capacity at most
Use three phases power supply to strengthen DDR3 stability


LGA 1366 CPU

4- WAY SLI bridge device. Exclusive ECP V2 panel


Except that the large-scale heat pipe to dispel the heat, additional fan is necessary to enhance the heat convection for X58


The independent heat sink mould dispels the heat for Mosfet, 10 phase Digital designed for CPU of power supplier




PSU I used ANTEC CP-1000, the special products designed, to afford enough power supply capacity under high load


The special fan designed and volume which is similar as industrial required,
but please noted that CP-1000 have to install in ANTEC of Case, there are 3 kind of case can be selected.


Test platform
CPU: Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition ES
MB: EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI
DRAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT CMG6GX3M3A2000C8
VGA: GIGABYTE GTX260 OC SLI 3WAY
HD: CORSAIR NOVA V128
POWER: ANTEC CP-1000
Cooler: Thermaltake Frio
OS: Windows7 Ultimate 64bit


The radiator is Thermaltake of Frio Cooler.
Personal impression on Thermaltake Cooler was the easy disassembly and assembly in the past, and it still has good efficiency


The user can choose to install one or two fans,
all have additional thread to control the rotational speed, m/while there are five pipes in the both sides bottom each

Preserve efficiency
CPU 132.7 X 26 =>3449.6MHz

980X EE efficiency was mainly high to compared with CPU of past 4 Cores, thus, itís easy to get high mark on above common test software.
Especially Hyper-Threading turns into 6C/12T and Turbo Boost automatically upgrade its frequently,
both of them are useful to improve the efficiency of CPU

Temperature
30~37 under the system of stand-by


OCCT full speed operation 52~62
Intel Burn Test v2.4, Stress Level Maximum


Normally the temperature of each CPU Core is different and its OC performance is easy affected
980X EE only have 30 degree under stand-by status, 60 degree under full speed operation

The power consumption testing
270W under the system of stand-by


CPU full speed operation 363W



SATA frequency wide testing of the south bridge ICH10R uses CORSAIR NOVA 128GB SSD

windwithme 4th May 2010 17:57

NOVA SSD series with the graceful black tone to be its surface


ATTO DISK Benchmark exceeds above 128k and can be played to read 266 MB/s at most while testing, writes into 200 MB/s
CrystalDiskMark reads 248.4 Mb/s, writes into 168.4 MB/s


In Intel low stage chip frame, almost north and south bridge unified into one, but X58 still follow old frame to divide north and south bridge,
thatís why I highlight the wide frequently of 1CH10R when I do SSD full speed operation

The OC efficiency frequently

The focal point frequently lies in CPU VTT Voltage to draw high outside CPU


DDR3 parameter is set up


CPU 200.5 X 21 =>4210.7MHz

Hyper 12 X PI 32M=> 13m 59.173s

To upgrade 980X EE to achieve 4.2GHz under 1.364 voltage, normally speaking,
based on each CPUís quality adjusts its voltage to make sure CPU running stable to compare OC with preserving frequency,
itís easy to upgrade 15~25% of the CPU performance.

DRAM width frequency
DDR3 1857.4 CL7 7-6-24 1T
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 29607MB/s
EVEREST Memory Read - 18535MB/s


DDR3 2005.2 CL8 8-8-24 1T
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 32040MB/s
EVEREST Memory Read - 19790MB/s


DDR3 2005 CL7 7-6-24 1T
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 32771MB/s
EVEREST Memory Read - 20140MB/s


Though the P55 of chip frame is same as X58, all are memory controller build inside in CPU,
but dual channel performance of P55 is still hard to catch up triple channel performance of X58.

Temperature behaves
39~49 under the system of stand-by


OCCT full speed operation 75~88
Intel Burn Test v2.4, Stress Level Maximum


Intel Burn Test is a kind of extreme burning software, the CPU loading is relatively high,
there are 10 degrees different from select Stress Level High/Maximum these two styles, 980X EE is 6C/12T,
what temperature displays as 4C/8T is pretty much the same, if CPU temperature can be reduced a little more, it will be more ideal state

The power consumption testing
The system of stand-by 319W


CPU full speed operation 516W


CPU FSB 220MHz


Certainly the limit FSB of 980X EE is not only 200MHz, there are some space to upgrade its FSB,
it can achieve better record if we add VTT voltage or no require to pass Hyper 12 X PI 32M.
Actually 980X EE of FSB ability can beat i7 Quad-Core

Due to the Hexa-Core i7-980X EE is made with 32nm processing, compares with the products of i7 920~975 Quad-Core 45nm processing.
The performance of i7-980X EE is much better than expectation no matter on temperature, power consumption and efficiency of OC program.

Relatively to more cores CPU products output, it is good news to the users who have more requirements for PC.


In the initial stage of Hexa-Core CPU, Intel only launched Core i7-980X Extreme Edition,
Thereís no big different from Intel i7 965/975 Extreme on the pricing segment, all of them quoted at USD999.
Frankly speaking, it will be a loading to users who want to upgrade their PC system but the budget is limited.

On the other hand, dynastic changes faster is good for us, as we can pay few and get the best quality goods in the short time.
Itís better to launch new Core i7-980X Extreme Edition at par, one way to get more competitive in the market,
the other way can promote Hexa-Core CPU to be popular more and soon.

Recently I just bought the introduction to Canon which is the best edition of ABC DSLR-550D last week


Hopefully to introduce the best buy of Kiss X3 (500D) and the popular edition of ABC of machine 550D these two cameras to all of you soon.
