Default Intel Core i7 970 Review

Itís true. AMDís entire desktop product line exists below $300, and we wonít see a real push for the high end crown until next year with Bulldozer. Until then, the real competition happens at lower (and arguably more interesting) price points where AMD gives you more cores for less, while Intel offers lower power consumption and better single threaded performance.

The ultra high end is still alive and well, despite the lack of competition in the market. Apple just announced its own dual-socket, 12-core monster that will begin shipping next month. Even Intel will tell you that itís seeing more interest in the Core i7 980X than any previous Extreme Edition part. And the interest isnít misplaced.
