With Intel® Core™ i7 69xx/68xx processor family you can run several CPU –heavy programs simultaneously, without sacrificing performance. Your PC is your studio: produce amazing 4K or 360-degree videos, stunning photos, or amazing music. You can do it all with an up to 10-core, 20-thread processor. A 35% improvement in multi-threaded 3D rendering speed versus the previous gen and up to 2x better multi-threaded 3D-rendering performance versus our latest 4 core processor3 means you can spend more time creating and less time waiting. Experience fast video encode, image rendering, audio production, and real-time previews that you can check out on a bank of monitors at the great resolution.4
Lags will not be tolerated: Play. Broadcast. Record. Win... in 4K. Get gaming superpowers with the Intel® Core™ i7 processor Extreme Edition, which features Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.05 for more than 15% better single-threaded performance6, blistering 2400MHz memory, fully- loaded 25 MB of Smart Cache, and up to 4 discrete graphics cards working together for your most demanding games.
The Intel® Core™ i7 69xx/68xx processor family is unlocked to provide additional headroom. New features include the ability to overclock each core individually, AVX ratio controls for more stability, and VccU voltage control for extreme scenarios. Combined with tools like Intel's Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) and Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP), you have a powerful kit for maximizing performance.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors.
Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

CINEBENCH* R11.5 and R15 is a benchmark from MAXON Computer that measures the performance of desktop OpenGL* 3D modeling applications.
Requires a system with Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0. Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 are only available on select Intel® processors. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration.

Compute Intensive Application Performance. SPEC* CPU2000/2006 is a benchmark from the SPEC consortium that measures device performance and throughput using compute intensive application subtests. SPECint*_base2000/2006 measures how fast a device completes a single integer compute task. SPECint*_rate_base2000/2006 measures throughput, or how many integer compute tasks a device can accomplish in a given amount of time. OS support: Desktop Windows*, UNIX*/Linux* and Mac* OS.
Warning: Altering PC clock or memory frequency and/or voltage may (i) reduce system stability and use life of the system, memory and processor; (ii) cause the processor and other system components to fail; (iii) cause reductions in system performance; (iv) cause additional heat or other damage; and (v) affect system data integrity. Intel assumes no responsibility that the memory, included if used with altered clock frequencies and/or voltages, will be fit for any particular purpose. Check with memory manufacturer for warranty and additional details. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/gaming/overclocking-intel-processors.html.
