Crush your enemies, climb the tower of paperwork -- or do both at the same time. Intel's Core i7 processor not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. The Core i7 950 has four cores that run at 3.06GHz and shares 8MB of L3 cache.

Quad cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. One core handles the usual action on your operating system, while the second can play a DVD on the TV, the third download a file from internet, and the fourth one sends audio to the kids in another room without lags or stutters. All this is made easier with Intel’s advanced Digital Media Boost.

With Intel Turbo Boost technology and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, The Core i7 enables highly threaded applications or demanding applications to work in maximum speed without any extra effort. The 45nm Intel Core i7 processor is armed with Intel HD Boost, which implementing new Intel Streaming SIMD Extension 4.1 (Intel SSE4.1) instructions for fast high definition video editing and encoding, enhance the multimedia performance.

  • newegg Intel Core i7 Quad-core Processor With four processing cores, the multitasking monster Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor delivers fourfold the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power. The powerful processor delivers serious performance on the ultra-demanding games of today and tomorrow. The innovative 45nm quad-core technology optimizes thermal performance for reduced power consumption and noise.
  • newegg Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller With the integrated DDR3 memory controller, the Intel Core i7 enables three channels of DDR3 1066 MHz memory, resulting in up to 25.6 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth delivers amazing performance for data-intensive applications.
  • newegg Intel Advanced Smart Cache Intel Advanced Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared L3 cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L3 cache, resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.
  • newegg Intel Turbo Boost technology Intel Turbo Boost technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload-more performance when you need it the most.
  • newegg Intel Wide Dynamic Execution With Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, each of the four cores can complete up to four full instructions simultaneously, improves execution speed and efficiency, delivering more instructions per clock cycle.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning strong 4+ years

Pros: Good speed, low heat, good energy rating.

Cons: Had to apply thermal paste over the processor but that happens with any

Other Thoughts: I've had this for over 4 years, it has been working very well for osx builds up through the most recent 10.9.4

5 out of 5 eggsSad sad day

Pros: Very fast - overclock capable with the right cooling and no lag even when running a game with two virtual machines running in the background (I'm a geek - do you really need to ask?)

Cons: It died after 4 years.

Other Thoughts: Sadly, my CPU looks to have died and this entire class of i7s (1st Gen) are no longer available except as used and they are priced way too high. So, let's have a moment of silence for my dead gaming system.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Dependable

Pros: Bought the Chip 2 years ago and still going strong. Have never had an issue with overheating (I played around with overclocking when I first got it and it was never an issue). I've primarily used it for gaming (easily handles everything I've played) but have also done some large data calculations using Maple. Outstanding job all around.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Even though this processor is "obsolete" it is still plenty fast enough for almost anything you'd want to do in 2013. With the reliability of Intel processors my next CPU purchase will definitely be from Intel (and NewEgg for that matter).

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I bought this chip 2 YEARS AGO and I still have yet to ever fully utilize it. Every game I play, every thing I do, it barely makes a dent in the CPU usage.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Great performance, very reliable.

Cons: None that come to mind

Other Thoughts: This has been a great processor now for over a year. I bought it when it had a price reduction due to not selling as it was the middle range in it's processor line. I love the performance. I have never strained this processor. I do some gaming and rendering and it handles everything I do with no hiccups.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Processor.

Pros: Very durable and reliable card. I have thrown everything from 3DS max to the Sandbox Simulator at it and it performs wonderfully.

I even had an incident about a year back where the CPU cooler went out over the weekend while I was gone and was running SETI@home calculations. logs said it was running at about 85C mid-way into Saturday and continued until late Sunday, when I came home. Still performs like a champ another year later.

Cons: Discontinued.

Other Thoughts: Why was it discontinued?
