Intel Core i5 750, Core i7 870 Linux Benchmarks
Phoronix: Intel Core i5 750, Core i7 870 Linux Benchmarks
Now that we have provided a brief overview of the Intel P55 and how it functions under Linux, our larger area of concentration is looking at the Linux performance of the P55 with the new Core i5 750 and Core i7 870 processors. We have a number of benchmarks in this article along with more information on these Lynnfield processors.
Awesome Thanks for the review..
So it seems my Phenom II X4 will have significant lead over these i5 and i7
Could you please include some Phenom II X4 955 benchmarks.
What sense in comparing Intel quad core CPU to AMD tri core CPU?
You should at least include Intel Core 2 Quad CPU (to compare architecture improovements) and AMD Phenom II X4 (to compare new Intel CPUs to REAL competiotion, not to some weaker and cheaper tripple core Phenom II X3).
These whole benchmarks just compare Intel i5 to Intel i7 CPUs performance and nothimg more ... really disapoining.
Why waste time at all for such uncomplete tests?
That's the title of the benchmark after all. i5 750 vs i7 870 and not Intel vs AMD.

A Quad should be tested with Quad.
The benchmarks are interesting, where is the pts code to compare against? Also adding Phenom II X965, Intel Q9550, would be interesting, as they are from the same price range, i7 860 instead of 870 would be more logical too, as 870 is much more expensive than i7 920/860.
Dear God, putting AMD's tricore against Intel's newest quads? Poor AMD. Michael you should hit them up for a 955 at least! Very surprised to see the X3 outperforming the Nehalems in places.
Nice review, I'm guessing you only had that tricore at hand. But it really did do well. I was very impressed with its performance compared to Intel's i5 and i7.
Any chance you could add a Top of the range Phenom II X4 in there?
Looks like phenom is very fast core but lags in memory bandwidth so test that are memory limited are lose to AMD processors.
