Intel i7-980X Reviewed: Live video of Tim unboxing and setting up the I7-980X CPU!
For your PC nuts out there, today we will be doing a special live video review of the newest, absolutely most monsterous gaming CPU on the market today: The Intel I7-980X CPU. This processor is the highest end desktop CPU that money can buy. With 6 CPU cores, with a standard 3.3GHZ clockspeed, and fully overclockable, this CPU will melt your heart.
How will this CPU fare for multiboxing? Our guess is that you could run 40+ World of Warcrafts on a single PC using this processor.
Previously Tim (the founder of this site as well as the owner of the Pwnboxer multiboxing software) was using the voraciously fast i7 975 Extreme Edition as his gaming CPU. Don’t get us wrong, that processor is a beast. However, if the 975EE is a beast, than the 980X is a solar system. Yes, it is all that and a bag of black holes!
Tonight at approx. 4pm CST, Tim will be streaming live then full unboxing of this i7-980X CPU and will be installing it into his gaming system. You can watch this stream live here: Justin.tv/Multiboxing
