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. WeboSplash November 3, 2011 11:49:49 AM Thx bloody Can't find your answer ? Ask !
