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


3DMark & FarCry 2:

We haven't done any changes, except increasing the resolution for 3DMark 2003 to 1600x1200. As you can see, more CPU does not really help. Even FarCry2 does not increase significantly with Hyperthreading enabled on the i7 platform. Yes, you get more CPU-score, but that's it. So for gamers it does not seem to matter to get the fastest CPU at all. The funny thing is, the i7 920 appears faster with 3DMark 2003 but we explained that behavior earlier.
