Intel's 3rd Generation I7 CPU line

Post by meteoadriatic » Thu Apr 26, 2012 9:03 pm

Hello.

Anybody has a WRF benchmark from some of these?
http://ark.intel.com/products/family/65506

They look very interesting because they are all extremely low TDP (max just 77W), but are they fast like for example 2nd generation i7-3820? They has also lower cache amount than i7-3820 (which is in theory not that good). I would really like to know how these perform for WRF.

Any info?

This is probably a sub-optimal answer to your question, but here are the results for one recent i7 compared to an overclocked Phenom II Black:
