Lee, Extreme Gamer1
"Games are a way of life. Whether it is defeating Napoleon or developing strategies for tournament, I’m always in the game. Seeing what can be achieved with dedication and practice is what drives me."
At 31, Lee has competed in more than 15 countries across 4 continents. When he isn’t planning international trips, he’s on a gaming server competing against the best players in the world.
To get an edge against his competitors, Lee relies on his gaming PC powered by a top-of-the-line 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor. Overclocking combined with adaptive performance gives Lee the speed he needs while built-in visual features like Intel® HD Graphics and Clear Video HD Technology deliver stunning visuals seamlessly, even without an additional graphics card.

How does overclocking help in extreme gaming?
Competitive gamers like Lee are always on the lookout for ways to gain an advantage and this includes optimising their PCs to run faster and better. Simply put, overclocking allows a processor to run faster than originally intended by the manufacturer. A faster processor means that games run smoother and more responsively, letting you react faster – always a good thing when going head-to-head in a live game against other players.
Because it comes with overclocking enabled, the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor is a great choice for gamers looking for an extra edge. Its adaptive speed and responsiveness keeps Lee on top of his game while the built-in visual features keep the game looking sharp and smooth.
Is a processor as important as a graphics card?
Your processor sets the limit of what your PC can do, and this includes the quality of visuals you can enjoy. The speed of your processor affects the responsiveness and quality of your in-game graphics, making your games run faster or slower. Even with an added graphics card, a slow processor will still deliver an unsatisfactory gaming experience.
With its blazing speed and built-in 3D graphics performance, Lee’s 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor comes ready to deliver the ultimate visual and gaming experience, even without an added graphics card. Whether it’s HD or 3D, multimedia or multitasking, this processor does it all and looks good doing it.
