Upgrade your system with the Core i7-980X and own the finest processor in the world. This is Intel's first six-core CPU based on the 32nm manufacturing process, designed to handle the most intense compute and visualization workloads you can throw at it. Clocked at 3.33GHz, it allows you to multitask faster and unleash powerful media creation tools. Best of all, the 12MB of Intel Smart Cache gives you blazing speeds you never realized were possible.
Take advantage of Intel Turbo Boost technology which dynamically accelerates CPU performance to match your workload. Hyper-Threading technology effectively doubles the output of your six physical cores, giving you unmatched data processing. The Integrated Memory Controller optimizes data bandwidth with up to three channels.
Add the Intel Core i7-980X to your system and you’ll never look back. Experience the speed, versatility and raw power of massive multi-core processing today!
Hexa-core Processing With six processing cores, the multitasking monster Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition processor delivers six times the performance on highly-threaded applications, taking your desktop PC experience into a completely new realm of mega power.
32nm Process Technology The Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition processor features Intel's breakthrough 32nm process technology with 2nd generation high-k + metal gate transistors for improved performance and reduced power leakage.
Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller With the integrated DDR3 memory controller, the Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition processor 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.
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.
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.
Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel to improve system responsiveness. Intel Core i7 processors enabled with HT Technology deliver performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.
