What Is teh Best And Fastest Cpu In The Market Toaday ?
But its not necessarily the best value for money
8 processing threads ..... so this thing has 8 virtual cores ?
In theory yes.
wow but hardly any program can use the 4 core from a quad whats the point in a i7
They need the hardware ready for the software to go onto in future.
See the 8 Virtual Cores:
profesional programs can, cad 3ds max , video editing software photoshop.
bloody hell imagine in 10 years gonna be like 50 cores lol
Its actually quad core Hyperthreading is why its shows up 8 cpu graphs in task manager. Basically it allows the each cpu core to call on spare capacity in the form of another core when its required. Ofcourse most applications are still only single threaded so it wont make much difference in everyday computing other than looking cool in TM.
pfft, it also looks great in vista gadgets too (when you find ones to support a quad core with hyper threading...)
Indeed it does lol nice.
core i7 FTW!
