Product Shot 1 The Pros:Tested before you get it to ensure it is 100% operational. Runs almost 98% as fast as the much more expensive Intel Core i7 970. Extreme processing capacity ideal for heavy computing jobs.

The Intel Core i7-950 is a 45nm, desktop quad-core “Bloomfield” microprocessor engineered for the most demanding multi-threaded games and multimedia applications. Released on May 31st of 2009 alongside the superior 3.33GHz Core i7-975 XE (“Bloomfield XE”), the Core i7-950 is based off the same Nehalem MicroArchitecure, but boasts a reduced 3.066GHz core speed, as well as an inferior Intel QPI speed of 4.8 GT/s.

Keep in mind though that as far as the “Bloomfield” cores are concerned, the Core i7-950 is in fact the superior model, and out-performs both the Core i7-920 and Core i7-940. Additional notable features of the i7-950 include an Intel QuickPath Interconnect interface (replaces FSB) for enhanced data cache per core, 'Turbo Boost' technology, and Intel Virtualization technology.
