How long will the i7 920 considered active-duty? - Page 5

post #41 of 43
I will rock my i7 920 until future software gives me a great reason to upgrade. If you're only a gamer, OC it, upgrade graphics cards, throw in an SSD, and you're done. I'm positive a good setup is good to go for at least 5 more years.

Just did 20 game benchmarks on Core i7 920 (Xeon W3520) clocked at 4 GHz with a GTX670. In some games it totally destroyed my AMD FX 6200 clocked at same 4 GHz. Will compare those 2 CPUs VS Core i7 3820 at 4 GHz soon enough.

So, Core i7 920 might be 3 year old, but still ahead of AMD. What else to say?
