Whether it’s HD media, 3D gaming, or multitasking, the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor can handle it all with headroom to spare. Its top-of-the-line speed is complemented by Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which adapts processor speed for more performance when you need it. Combined with a rich set of features, including Intel’s unique set of built-in visuals, the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor is the ideal choice for visibly smart performance at its best. And when combined with Intel H67 Express chipset, Intel Core i7-2600 processor delivers visibly smart performance at its best for the desktop with its highest performance built-in graphics and media features.

  • newegg New Microarchitecture on 32nm Process Intel’s cutting-edge 32nm microarchitecture with 2nd gen Hi-K+ metal gate process delivers the 2nd generation Intel Core processors with higher performance at lower power.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 More intelligent, energy-efficient, and dynamic than previous generation, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 gives you accelerating performance when you need it. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor and graphics cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.
  • newegg Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
  • newegg Intel Smart Cache Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller Integrated memory controller enables two channels of DDR3 1333 MHz memory, resulting in up to 21 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
  • newegg Built-in Visuals (with H Chipset) The visual features built into the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family deliver everything you need to enjoy a stunning and seamless visual experience. Intel Quick Sync Video and newly-added Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) make media processing incredibly fast. New built-in Intel HD Graphics delivers discrete 3D graphics performance without the needed cost and power of a discrete graphics card, and features Intel Clear Video Technology than enhances video playback, image quality, and color fidelity for a premium visual experience. What’s more, add another dimension to what you see on your PC with Intel InTRU 3D technology which supports stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution over HDMI 1.4.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome processor

Pros: I've been using this processor for over a year now, and it's still perfect. More than enough power for what I need.

Cons: Docked an egg because the heatsink really is bad. Mine didn't break, but there are better ones out there for pretty cheap.

Other Thoughts: Great processor for the money.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid CPU still today.

Pros: Churns through even today's software without any problem. Great for those who don't plan to overclock. This processor has worked out great for me with video editing, blender rendering, screen capture and of course gaming. If you buy this now it will probably last well into 2015 before it no longer meets the demands of software.

Cons: There is nothing bad about this processor considering it's limitations *which any buyer should already be aware of*.

5 out of 5 eggsWish I had held out for restock of 2600k...

Pros: Love this CPU, extremely powerful, responsive and solid. At 3.4ghz, have never had an issue with any game or application running on the system...not even close. Would recommend discrete graphics card as Intel HD graphics aren't very good, but otherwise, a fantastic value, even today.

Cons: Wish I had waited a couple days to get the 2600k version that was out of stock, but still not disappointed in the 2600 non-k. Most motherboards will still auto-bump CPU specs to 3.5 or 3.6ghz if set in BIOS, but like I mentioned, I've never had an issue with CPU horsepower with this CPU.

Other Thoughts: With new Intel 3rd and 4th gen i7's out, this is a good budget CPU if you can find it for decent cost.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, functional

Pros: Works

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Comes with annoying clips to attach to motherboard, not a big deal..but I paid a lot for the processor so what the heck, throw in some decent clips

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Fast and Cool (on stock.) I'm running 4 VM's w/32GB of RAM and no problems. This chip is impressive. As impressive as the first time I used my AMD 3200+ Winchester and AMD 4000+ San Diego. Chips like this don't come along often, and from all the negatives I heard about Ivy Bridge, I bought a second i7 2600 and will skip Ivy and Haswell.

Cons: Not a true 8 core.

Other Thoughts: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
Crucial Ballastix Sport 32GB
