    Intel Core i7 3960x reviews

    What a beast... especially the memory bandwidth increase brought by X79.

    Power consumption is slightly higher than the 990x but lower than the i7 920. Of course, it's not much of an improvement for games compared to the i5 2500k and i7 2600k, and even for those who would benefit from the added cores/threads/memory bandwidth, you can pick up the i7 3930k for $400 less which is pretty much the same thing but with 3MB less cache.

    Laptop processors are different than desktop processors. The fastest desktop processor is the Intel Core i7 3960x, while the fastest laptop processor is the i7 2960XM I believe. If you're looking for gaming laptops, look at Alienware.

    I bought a NP5165 from them a few months back at XoticPC. It's a truly epic laptop.

    XoticPC has awesome support as well.
