Adding in Sandra for the first time in quite a while, we get another view of the memory performance. Intel has nailed it with the Core i7's on-die memory controller. When it comes to CPU performance, Core i7 indeed has much more improved ALU and FPU performance. When testing inter-core communications, we see Core i7 well in front of the AMD and Intel Core 2 platforms.
