Get the answer hell_storm2004 a b à CPUs November 3, 2011 10:05:35 AM i7 860 is almost equivalent of i7 930 (LGA1366). m 0 l BloodyInsane November 3, 2011 11:44:12 AM Clock for clock, Bloomfield and Lynnfield are practically equal. Bloomfield generally enjoys a <1% performance edge over Lynnfield, all things equal. I don't think that triple-channel memory makes that much for most Bloomfield users, so that advantage really goes out the window too. So, really, it comes down to the MHz, and the i7-860 has more of them at stock. m 0 l WeboSplash November 3, 2011 11:49:49 AM Thx bloody m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
