Solved Does intel core i7 4960x use ivy bridge cores? Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Intel Last response: September 10, 2013 9:43 PM in CPUs Share darkstar845 September 3, 2013 9:05:33 PM Does the new Intel core i7 4960x CPU use ivy bridge cores or does it still use the same cores of i7 3960x? I've seen the benchmarks and it seems that the i7 4960x is only 2-5 percent faster than i7 3960x. And the i7 4960x has a higher clock rate than i7 3960x, 3.3ghz vs 3.6ghz More about : intel core 4960x ivy bridge cores JackNaylorPE a c 251 à CPUs a b å Intel September 3, 2013 9:13:08 PM See THG home page http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-i7-4960x-ivy-b... m 0 l Best solution nleksan September 10, 2013 7:27:02 PM Yes, it is the Ivy Bridge architecture scaled-up to 6-cores (4930/4960) Share Can't find your answer ?

It is based on the same process node and tech but it has its differences that set it apart. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
