Mega-Task with Ease
With Intel Core i7-6950X processor 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 a 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 processor 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.
Overclock with Confidence
The Intel® Core™ i7 6950X 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.
Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 identifies the best performing core(s) on a processor and provides increased performance on those cores through increasing frequency as needed by taking advantage of power and thermal headroom.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases the processor's frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom to give you a burst of speed when you need it, and increased energy efficiency when you don’t.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)
Intel® VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT), also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), provides acceleration for memory intensive virtualized applications. Extended Page Tables in Intel® Virtualization Technology platforms reduces the memory and power overhead costs and increases battery life through hardware optimization of page table management.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology is an advanced means of enabling high performance while meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep® Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies such as Separation between Voltage and Frequency Changes, and Clock Partitioning and Recovery.
