  • 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 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 Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Today's Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel HT 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 Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) for Directed I/O (Intel VT-d) Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) extends Intel's Virtualization Technology (VT) roadmap by providing hardware assists for virtualization solution. VT-d continues from the existing support for IA-32 (VT-x) and Itanium processor (VT-i) virtualization adding new support for I/O-device virtualization. Intel VT-d can help end users improve security and reliability of the systems and also improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environment. These inherently helps IT managers reduce the overall total cost of ownership by reducing potential down time and increasing productive throughput by better utilization of the data center resources.
  • newegg Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT) Intel Trusted Execution Technology for safer computing is a versatile set of hardware extensions to Intel processors and chipsets that enhance the digital office platform with security capabilities such as measured launch and protected execution. Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides hardware-based mechanisms that help protect against software-based attacks and protects the confidentiality and integrity of data stored or created on the client PC. It does this by enabling an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system. These capabilities provide the protection mechanisms, rooted in hardware, that are necessary to provide trust in the application's execution environment. In turn, this can help to protect vital data and processes from being compromised by malicious software running on the platform.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit Execute Disable Bit is a hardware-based security feature that can reduce exposure to viruses and malicious-code attacks and prevent harmful software from executing and propagating on the server or network. Help protect your customers' business assets and reduce the need for costly virus-related repairs by building systems with built-in Intel Execute Disable Bit.

Excellent processor, poor cooling fan

Pros: Excellent speed

Cons: I would give 5 stars except for the factory cooling fan. It blows (Vernacular pun).

Overall Review: Can not run this processor full bore with the fan that comes from the factory.

If you're using Vray or Mental forget it. This chip needs better cooling than is supplied with the factory box.

Excellent cpu for the price

Pros: Very efficient and low heat, I hate to say it; it's a far better deal over the i7 2600.

i7 2600K SB

(i7 3720M Ivy)(Intel xeon E3 1230 SB) runs on the same level
^
i7 2600 SB

Cons: None so far yet.

Overall Review: For running 2 ghz slower; it runs far faster over a regular i7 2600 and the price is far better deal.

A monster of a CPU

Pros: + Very strong CPU

+This CPU has 8 virtual cores which is quite a bonus because I hadn't been expecting that.

+It's price for performance is among the highest of all CPUs

Cons: -The only con I've run into is that it does not have a built in graphics card. If you're building a gaming PC it's fine, you're getting a graphics card anyway but be sure to have a back up in case your current card ever dies.

Great but buy a different cooler

Pros: Extremely fast, awesome chip. It does everything I want and then some. I've had this chip running a high intensity analytic system for 7 days straight with no rest and never once slowed down.

Cons: The only reason I'm giving this 1 star is so that poeple read this.

Do NOT use the factory fan it comes with.
Do NOT use the factory fan it comes with.
Do NOT use the factory fan it comes with.
Do NOT use the factory fan it comes with.

I had major overheating issues on the chip without overclocking. Spend the cash on a nice cooling setup. You'll be using this chip for years so an extra $20-$50 on a well made fan is worth it. Or take the plunge into water cooling (pun intended).

Overall Review: Buy this chip. Just buy invest in a nice fan.
