The Core i7-6950X 3.0 GHz Ten-Core LGA 2011-v3 Extreme Edition Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.0 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.0 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 10 cores with 20 threads in an LGA 2011-v3 socket and has 25MB of Intel Smart Cache memory. Having 10 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 20 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports up to 128GB of DDR4-2400/2133 RAM, has AES New Instructions, 14nm lithography, and utilizes 6th Generation (Skylake) technology.
Mega-Task with Ease
With the Intel Core i7 69xx/68xx processor family, you can run several CPU-heavy programs simultaneously without sacrificing performance. A 35% improvement in multi-threaded 3D rendering speed versus the previous generation and up to 2x better multi-threaded 3D-rendering performance versus our latest 4 core processor means you can spend more time creating and less time waiting. Experience fast video encode, image rendering, audio production, and real-time previews that you can check out on a bank of monitors at a great resolution.
Lags will not be tolerated: Play. Broadcast. Record. Win... in 4K. Get gaming superpowers with the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition, which features Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 for more than 15% better single-threaded performance, blistering 2400MHz memory, fully- loaded 25 MB of Smart Cache, and up to 4 discrete graphics cards working together for your most demanding games.
Overclock with Confidence
The Intel Core i7 69xx/68xx processor family is unlocked to provide additional headroom. New features include the ability to overclock each core individually, AVX ratio controls for more stability, and VccU voltage control for extreme scenarios. Combined with tools like Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel XTU) and Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP), you have a powerful kit for maximizing performance.
