With up to 10 cores and 20 threads the Intel® Core™ i7 69xx/68xx processor family is our most powerful ever. Turn your PC into a studio: produce amazing 4K or 360-degree videos, stunning photos, or amazing music. This is the ultimate tool for gaming and virtual reality. Experience the power to do it all.
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 processor1 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 resolution2.
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 3.03 for more than 15% better single-threaded performance4, blistering 2400MHz memory, fully- loaded 25 MB of Smart Cache, and up to 4 discrete graphics cards working together for your most demanding games.
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.
CINEBENCH* R11.5 and R15 is a benchmark from MAXON Computer that measures the performance of desktop OpenGL* 3D modeling applications.
Optimization Notice: Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (Intel® SSE2), Intel® SSE3, and Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice. Notice Revision #20110804.
As measured with SPECint_base2006. SPECint*_base2000/2006 measures how fast a device completes a single integer compute task. SPECint*_rate_base2000/2006 measures throughput, or how many integer compute tasks a device can accomplish in a given amount of time. Comparison made using an Intel® Core™ i7-6950x processor versus an Intel® Core™ i7-5960x processor with otherwise identical system hardware.
Warning: Altering PC clock or memory frequency and/or voltage may (i) reduce system stability and use life of the system, memory and processor; (ii) cause the processor and other system components to fail; (iii) cause reductions in system performance; (iv) cause additional heat or other damage; and (v) affect system data integrity. Intel assumes no responsibility that the memory, included if used with altered clock frequencies and/or voltages, will be fit for any particular purpose. Check with memory manufacturer for warranty and additional details. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/gaming/overclocking-intel-processors.html.
