Features and Performance

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 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.

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.

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.
