I'm looking for CPU to use for simulation with Cadence Spectre. Which CPU i7-975 or i7-2600K has more efficient memory controller? Which one is faster in float point calculation. i7-975 is about 3x times more expensive than 2600K. Which advantages 975 has compared to 2600K?
Could you suggest i7 motherboard with RIAD controller siutable for Linux OS, please?
Hello; You can compare between both processors here: http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=37153,52214, One of the main difference is that the i7-2600k will support 1333 mhz memory and the i7-975 will support up to 1066 Mhz . Also the i7-2600k comes with integrated graphics. Finally if you need a desktop board that will support the 2600k processor can be found here: http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?ProcNbr=I7-2600K&Lang=en-US For the i7-975 check here: http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?ProcNbr=I7-975&Lang=en-US
