The expected performance boost to be derived from Intel’s eagerly anticipated Nehalem microarchitecture based CPUs, codenamed Bloomfield, has been the cause of much excitement recently…

The above image exhibits the B0 stepping Bloomfield CPU, sitting comfortably at its stock speed, utilising a 20x multiplier, with a Core VID of 1.075V. The test bed is married with PC3-8500F DDR3 memory, whilst graphics duties are handled by an NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 solution. It would be a crime not to give this sample a taste of the wide open road, hence CHIPHELL obliges with a variety of benchmark passes.
