IDF San Francisco 2008: Impressive Nehalem benchmarks
The Nehalem, also known as Core i7, seems to have some decent capabilities. At the IDF we recorded a Cinebench R10 run that confirms the performance of the new architecture.
Intel ran Cinebench R10 on the 3.2 GHz Nehalem top model. Directly after the application was started eight threads appeared. They are created by four cores with Hyper-threading. The processor took only 19 seconds to finish the picture and reached a score of about 45,000 points. For comparison: The current top model Core 2 Extreme QX9770 with 3.2 GHz and four physical cores (without HTT) reaches about 12,000 points, if overclocked to 4.0 GHz it breaks the 15,000 points barrier.
We expect to receive additional information and benchmark results of the architecture by tomorrow.
