*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 YOYR 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.
