*Particular aspects may vary depedning on the chip, be sure to check individual specs

TURBO BOOST TECHNOLOGY 3.0

Do More with your CPUs Fastest Core

This great technology is a combination of software and hardware that delivers more than 15% better single-threaded performance. The single-thread performacne is optimized by identifying your processor’s fastest core and directing your most critical workloads to it. Turbo Boost Tech 3.0 doesn’t replace version 2.0 but instead enhances it. It grants a massive frequency boost on your fastest core for even more flexability to get the best from your processor.

OVERCLOCKING YOUR BROADWELL-E PROCESSOR

Three New Overclocking Features

These new Broadwell-E chips from Intel support overclocking and are fully unlocked. There have been 3 new features added to the CPU overclocking; per core overclocking, AVX ratio offset and VccU voltage control. Possibly the most eagerly awaited aspect by overclockers is the per core overclocking. This genius technology allows you to set independent clock speeds on a single chip, so you can set individual frequencies per core.

INTEL CORE FEATURES

Intel® AES
A fast, secure AES engine for a variety of encrption apps, including whole disk encryption, file storage encryption, conditional access of HD content, internet scurity and VOIP. Consumers benefit from protected internet and email content

Intel® Turbo Boost 3.0
Identifies the fastest core on the processor die to provide improved single threaded performance on X-Series processors. The driver along with the feature allows end users to direct workflows to the fastest core by setting priority to preferred applications.

Intel® Virtualization Technology
Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple "virtual" platforms. Offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.

Intel® Smart Cache
Up to 25MB of shared cached allows faster access to your data by enabling dynamic and efficent allocation of the cache to match the needs of each core significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving perforamance.

Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology
Delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.

Conflict Free
Does not contain conflict minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries.

Overclocking Enabled
Fully unlocked core multipliers, power, base clock and DDR4 memory ratios for amazing flexability with overclocking.

Green Technology
Manufactured with lead-free and halogen-free component packages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CPU I bought this i7 5 months ago and this is my first CPU on socket 2011-3. For me it is good enough. Currently is overclock to 4.2GHz which give me excellent performance !
Date published: 2017-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value Broadwell-E CPU If you're thinking of getting into the X99 platform, go with this CPU over the 6850K, 6900K and 6950X. The price/performance on this chip is the best by far.
Date published: 2016-12-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value for money I couldnt find best value for money, works well at normal settings with low temps ( Noctua 90mm heat sink).
Date published: 2016-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As epected For the money 12 threads, 6 cores.. overclocks well.. but the temp do jump up once hitting 4.2ghz plus even though running custom 360 water loop. Think once the novelty has warn of it will require de-lidding and applying some proper compound. Otherwise it is very fast and does everything i need it to on stop settings.. very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast CPU Bought this for my recent upgrade from an AMD to Intel for a change. Intel chips are bit more expensive than AMD but worth the performance increase. Have notice improvement in games & can now run higher settings with same GPU.
Date published: 2016-08-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems so far! Works brilliantly. haven't had any problems with it so far. was after a higher spec processor without built in graphics. this fit the bill.
Date published: 2016-08-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Whilst not being able to handle single core tasks as well as my previous i5 could this new cpu is able to run a great multitude of tasks at once as well as running editing software to its fullest potential.
