Furthermore, complete software, operating system and security information makes EVEREST Ultimate Edition a comprehensive system diagnostics tool that offers a total of 100 pages of information about your PC.
The results of EVEREST's memory tests are a bit unexpected. Despite being reduced to dual channel memory, it appears that the new Lynnfield processors can still keep up with the i7-920. In fact, the i5-750 even pulls ahead in memory read and write bandwidth. It's only in the copy test that the 920 appears to have an advantage. Compared to the AMD Phenom II X4 965 and the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450, the Core i7-750 has a commanding lead. Keep in mind, though, that the tests were run at DDR3-1066. Higher bandwidth memory may results in different performance dynamics.
Moving on to integer tests, the rankings are much closer together, with the Core i5-750 coming in just behind the X4 965. The Core i7-870, on the other hand, actually manages to take the lead over the i7-920 in the Queen and AES benchmarks.
In the floating point benchmarks, the situation changes a bit. The Core i7-870 takes the lead, the i5-750 comes in second, and the AMD X4 965 and Intel Q9450 battle it out for last place.
