Velocity Micro Releases Core i7 Processor Systems

Velocity Micro, the premier independent builder of custom, high performance computers, notebooks, and workstations, announces today the immediate availability of ultra performance desktop PCs powered by Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition processors. Faster and more efficient than their Core 2 predecessors, Intel Core i7 processors provide increased performance in gaming, digital media creation, and multitasking. By combining their trademarked precision craftsmanship and the record breaking performance of this revolutionary processor, the Intel Core i7 processor-based offerings from Velocity Micro set the new standard in power and productivity.

"We’ve always made it a priority to provide our customers with the very latest technology," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "With the launch of the Core i7, we’re able to fulfill the immediate need of our enthusiast customers, giving them a remarkably fast PC that blows the doors off of everything else we’ve ever built."

With increased memory bandwidth and new Intel Turbo Boost Technology, Velocity Micro’s Intel Core i7 processor-based systems promise seamless gaming and multitasking. Additionally, the eight available threads of the Intel Core i7 processor, twice as many as the Core 2 Quad, translate into astonishing performance increases for the digital media creator. And with immediate availability of both direct and retail offerings, Velocity Micro will be a major provider of Intel Core i7 processor technology in North America at launch. Velocity Micro will offer systems with the mainstream Intel Core i7 920 and 940 processors, and the Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition, in a variety of Edge, Raptor, ProMagix, and Vector lines, starting at $1699.

"We’re excited to work with Velocity Micro on the launch of the Core i7," said CJ Bruno, Intel VP & GM, Americas Sales & Marketing Organization. "We’ve worked diligently to develop the most advanced processor on the planet, and have succeeded with the Core i7.

YEah, I prefer CPU as well. I find MPC's comparisons to be a little lacking, especially in the cooler arena. They still consider a Zalman 9700 to be one of the best. I don't think they have even tested a Xig HDT or TRUE.
