The Core i7-6900K 3.2 GHz Eight-Core LGA 2011-v3 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.2 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.0 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 8 cores with 16 threads in an LGA 2011-v3 socket and has 20MB of Intel Smart Cache memory. Having 8 cores allows the processor to run multiple programmes simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 16 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports up to 128GB of DDR4-2400/2133 RAM, has AES New Instructions, 14nm lithography, and utilises 6th Generation (Skylake) technology.

Graphically, the Intel Core i7-6900K 3.2 GHz Eight-Core LGA 2011-v3 Processor does not contain an integrated graphics controller, meaning that users will need to purchase a dedicated graphics card of their choice. This processor is also unlocked, meaning that it can be overclocked past its maximum turbo frequency. However, overclocking past the maximum turbo frequency is not recommended. Not only will it cause the processor to run much hotter, it will also void the limited 3-year warranty.

Key Features

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 Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (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 environments

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 optimisation of page table management

Intel 64
Intel 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop, and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4GB of both virtual and physical memory

Idle States
Idle States (C-states) are used to save power when the processor is idle. C0 is the operational state, meaning that the CPU is doing useful work. C1 is the first idle state, C2 the second, and so on, where more power saving actions are taken for numerically higher C-states

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

Intel Smart Response Technology
Intel Smart Response Technology combines the fast performance of a small solid state drive with the large capacity of a hard disk drive

Intel AES New Instructions
Intel AES New Instructions (Intel AES-NI) are a set of instructions that enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI are valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, for example: applications that perform bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption

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
