Intel Core i7-990X

The Intel Core i7-990X is a processor that features a 32 nm cache, 12 MB SmartCache, 3.46 GHz clock speed, 6.4 GT/s QPI bus speed, 6 cores and Intel® Virtualization Technology. It also supports Intel® 64 and Execute Disable Bit.

Features

The Intel Core i7-990X supports 3D gaming applications by distributing AI, physics, and rendering across six cores and 12 threads, and has a 3.46 GHz core speed (up to 3.73 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology). Its core is supported by Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology), and the processor has 12 MB Intel® Smart Cache, 3 Channels DDR3 1066 MHz memory and 32nm manufacturing process technology. The Intel® Turbo Boost Technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, accelerating performance to match workload-more performance when it is needed most, while the Intel® HT Technology enables highly threaded applications to get more work done in parallel. The processor is also supported by Intel® Smart Cache which provides an optimized cache subsystem that supports industry leading multi-threaded games; Intel® QuickPath Interconnect for increased bandwidth and low latency and can achieve data transfer speeds as high as 25.6 GB/sec with the Extreme Edition processor; integrated memory controller for three channels of DDR3 1066 MHz memory, and can support up to 25.6 GB/sec memory bandwidth; Intel® HD Boost with 128-bit SSE instructions that allows for a new level of processing efficiency with SSE4 optimized applications and AES-NI Encryption/Decryption Acceleration for 6 new processor instructions to improve performance for AES encryption and decryption algorithms.
