Review: i7 is the fastest, but Core 2 Quad still the best choice


i7 Benches:

While we were benching the i7 platform with R10 and x264 we noticed when you turn on Hyperthreading the results do not stay close. There are huge differences, so you can get a better or not so good results. It does not matter how many times you repeat the bench, at no time does the result stay stable. 

CineBench R10 has differences about 800 points which we consider as much too big.
