The highest performing desktop processor on the planet for extreme gamers and demanding enthusiasts.

Conquer the world of extreme gaming with the fastest processor on the planet: the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition. With faster, intelligent multi-core technology that dynamically accelerates performance to match your workload,it delivers an incredible breakthrough in gaming performance.

But performance doesn't stop at gaming. You'll multitask faster and unleash incredible digital media creation. In fact, you'll experience maximum performance for whatever you do, thanks to the combination of Intel Turbo Boost Technology and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, which activates full processing power exactly where and when you need it the most.

The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition can not only take on today's most complex and immersive games, but it's also powerful enough to handle tomorrow's gaming advances. Experience smoother and more realistic gaming made possible by distributing AI, physics, and rendering across four cores and eight software threads. For added flexibility, overspeed protection is removed allowing technical enthusiasts to tune the system for maximum performance.

Take digital content creation to a whole new level with the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition. Enjoy up to 79% faster video encoding and up to 46% faster image rendering, plus incredible performance for photo retouching and photo editing. Experience total creative freedom that's limited only by your imagination.

Unique Intel Turbo Boost Technology3 dynamically accelerates performance to match your workload and maximize speed for demanding applications. New performance-maximized memory access technologies work together to reduce latency and more than double memory bandwidth for faster memory access. Achieve up to 25 percent faster multitasking performance by handling multiple applications simultaneously so you experience less wait time. The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition offers unprecedented bandwidth and memory performance, including an integrated memory controller with 3 channels of DDR3, 2 DIMMs per channel, and up to 25.6 GB/s bandwidth for DDR3 1066 MHz.

Key Features

  • Quad-Core Processing
    Provides four complete execution cores in a single processor package. Four dedicated physical cores help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance, so users can experience better multitasking and multithreaded performance across many types of applications and workloads.
  • Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
    Delivers two processing threads per physical core for a total of eight threads for massive computational throughput. With Intel HT Technology, highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner. With more threads available to the operating system, multitasking becomes even easier. This amazing processor can handle multiple applications working simultaneously, allowing you to do more with less wait time.
  • 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.
  • 8 MB Intel Smart Cache
    This large last-level cache enables dynamic and efficient allocation of shared cache to all four cores to match the needs of various applications for ultra efficient data storage and manipulation.
  • Integrated Memory Controller
    An integrated memory controller offers stunning memory read/write performance through efficient prefetching algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth making the Intel Core i7 processor family ideal for data-intensive applications.
  • Intel HD Boost
    Includes the full SSE4 instruction set, significantly improving a broad range of multimedia and computer 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 SSE4-optimised applications.
  • Intel QuickPath Interconnect (Intel QPI)
    For the Intel Core i7-900 processor series, Intel QPI increases bandwidth and lowers latency, while achieving data transfer speeds as high as 25.6 GB/s.
  • Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS)
    Provides for more efficient processor and platform thermal control improving system acoustics. The DTS continuously measures the temperature at each processing core. The ability to continuously measure and detect variations in processor temperature enables system fans to spin only as fast as needed to cool the system. The combination of these technologies can result in significantly lower noise emissions from the PC.
  • Intel Wide Dynamic Execution
    Improves execution speed and efficiency, delivering more instructions per clock cycle. Each core can complete up to four full instructions simultaneously.
  • Intel Smart Memory Access
    Improves system performance by optimising the use of the available data bandwidth from the memory subsystem and reducing the effective latency of memory accesses.
