Resized ImageAlready one week ago we published our first article about Intels latest CPU architecture Nehalem. There we were testing under optimized conditions to show you the potential of the architecture in future. In this article we will show you how Intels Core i7 performs in recent games.

Therefore we test the Core i7 compared to a Core 2 Q9650 quad core processor.

We can tell you already at this point of the article that the performance increase is going to be much less significant than in the other article and this is for one simple reason: most of todays software isn't optimized to cope with eight threads and therefore a lot of potential Nehalem provides us with isn't going to be used.
