Intel retested the old architecture i7-930 10 years ago: The game can still be a battle
Under the strong stimulation of AMD, Intel finally regained its former glory. Each product line was smashed and changed over the years.
Looking back N years ago, Intel was also very up-tempo, especially in the early days of the Core Architecture. It was absolutely overwhelming. Every year there was a huge leap forward, and AMD could not be overwhelmed.
Recently, foreign hardware counterpart GamerNexus has revealed an ancient Core i7-930, Contrast it with many younger generations, the result is sighing.
The i7-930 was also an enthusiast-level product. Based on Nehalm's micro-architecture, it has been born for 10 years. It is also the end of this old architecture. It was released in the first quarter of 2010, 45nm process, and four cores. Threads, clocked at 2.80-3.06GHz, three-level cache 8MB, no core display, memory support three-channel DDR3-1066 24GB, thermal design power 130W, LGA1366 package interface, with X58 motherboard.
That is, one year after it, the milestone Sandy Bridge 2nd generation Core was born, leaving the i7-2600K and other classic products that are widely sung so far.
There are numerous test platforms, all using the latest Windows 10 system, with EVGA GTX 1080 FTW graphics card, Corsair Force LE 240GB SSD.
I7-930 In addition to silent frequency Up to 4GHz Tested, at this time the FSB 191MHz, multiplier 21x.
'benchmark performance test'
In the CineBench R15 benchmark, the single-threaded i7-930 single-threaded score was only 93.3, which is the level of the AMD Phenom II, which is less than half of the i7-7700K. After overclocking, it reached 125 points, which is already equivalent to the second-generation Core i5-2500K. Nearly two-thirds of i7-7700K.
Multi-threading frequency of about 475 points, slightly higher than the dual-core four-threaded i3-7350K, less than half of the i7-7700K; after overclocking increased by 34% to 636 points, slightly higher than the i7-2600K.
POV-Ray results are similar, single-threaded only slightly better than Pentium G4560, multi-threaded is the level of Phenom II X6.
Blender slightly better than the FX-8370, i3-7350K, after overclocking reached the i5-7600K grade.
Even after overclocking, Premier took a full 3 hours to complete the test. In contrast, the i5-7600K only takes 20 minutes to finish.
3DMark Fire Strike is still the i3-7350K's appearance. After overclocking, it is more than i5-7600K.
The 3DMark Time Spy is only equivalent to the i5-2500K, and after overclocking it is close to the FX-8370.
