    Hi!

    Guys at pclab.pl - polish hardware site - put their hands on early ES of Gulftown, Core i9 six core CPU and benched it a little.

    Article is in English.
    A little peep in the results:

    Thanks to xoqolatl for the link to English version! :toast:

    Assuming it is accurate, they scale perfectly (~17 per physical core). If it is to be believed, that means there's very few/no architectural changes between 32 nm and 45nm and between 4-cores and 6-cores. In fact, they're so perfect (6 = 16.965, 4 = 16.9975), I don't believe it. Multithreading generally doesn't scale that nice because one core is always burdened with managing the lot.

    I love what the i9 is going to offer, the price seems a little high, but I am just happy that 1366 has an upgrade path and a good one at that.

    Thanks for the article, it was a good read :)

    I've seen some ES results and they scale perfectly with results in a number of cpu benchmarks including WPrime, Cinebench R10, and Vantage CPU tests. There's actually a lot that has to be changed to put two more cores onto the die. Don't forget how the C2Qs were made :laugh: Intel done and gone the right thing here.

    They easily go above 4.0GHz. Most ES samples do 5GHz on air.

    Told ya - impressive numbers really. I'd like to do few renders on this moster.
    Damn... Now I know that I'll stay on my current setup and wait for 32nm's CPUs. :)
