The Ultimate - 6 Core Gulftown CPU
Outperform, overwhelm, and overthrow your competition with the new lntel® Core™ i7 processor Extreme Edition, featuring Intel's first 32nm processor with 12 computing threads. The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition delivers incredible breakthroughs in gaming and multitasking performance.

As Intel's Premier Partner - Remember when buying Intel Retail CPU's - We are never the cheapest! but - we sell only genuine UK Distribution Stock - This means if you buy a Grey or Imported product, Intel will NOT honour their 3 year Warranty. All Intel Boxed CPU's are now tracked by Serial Number.
Features • Six-Core Processing - Provides six complete execution cores in a single processor package, delivering 12 computing threads to help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance, so users can experience better multitasking and multi-threaded performance across many types of applications and workloads.

• Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology- Delivers two processing threads per physical core for a total of 12 threads for massive computational throughput, allowing highly threaded applications to get more work done faster.

• Intel® Turbo Boost Technology- Dynamically increases the processor’s frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits. Get more performance automatically, when you need it the most.

• Intel® Smart Cache - This large last-level cache enables dynamic and efficient allocation of shared cache to all six cores to match the needs of various applications for ultra-efficient data storage and manipulation.

• Intel® QuickPath Interconnect- Intel’s latest system interconnect design increases bandwidth and lowers latency, while achieving data transfer speeds as high as 25.6 GB/s.

• Integrated Memory Controller - An integrated memory controller with three channels of DDR3 1066 MHz offers memory performance up to 25.6 GB/s. Combined with the processor’s efficient prefetching algorithms, this memory controller’s lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.

• Intel® HD Boost- Includes the full SSE4 instruction set, significantly improving a broad range of multimedia and compute-intensive applications. The 128-bit SSE instructions are issued at a throughput rate of one per clock cycle, allowing a new level of processing efficiency with SE4-optimized applications.

• AES-NI Encryption / Decryption Acceleration - Provides 6 new processor instructions that help to improve performance for AES encryption and decryption algorithms.

Intel launched the consumer-oriented Core i7 900-series processors back in November 2008, and the chip giant has known that it's been on to a winner with Nehalem, the codename for the underlying architecture. This is the reason we've seen little innovation on Core i7, and pricing has remained relatively steady since launch.

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core?

It’s been a long time since MHz were the only part of a CPU’s specification that concerned people. Manufacturers take different approaches to CPU design, even when using the same architecture. That means for example, at the same clock speed, an Intel and AMD processor will deliver different performance.
