Core i7 at PCGH: We got some new toys in the PCGH Test Lab. Intel supplied us with a Nehalem kit that contains two Core i7 CPUs a X58 motherboard, DDR3 memory and two CPU coolers.
Sometimes Christmas is in mid October: That’s how the PCGH editors felt when the postman delivered an inconspicuous packet from Intel. The contents:
- Two different Core i7 CPUs
- Two CPU coolers (the new Boxed cooler and the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme)

- 3x DDR3 1066 1 GiByte DIMMs from Qimonda
In the Intel internal Technology Blog Bill Calder wrote that Core i7 processors will be officially introduced in November. Up to now we cannot say when we will be allowed to publish reviews of the Core i7. Nevertheless some websites already offer their test results.
