First Intel 10-core desktop processor delivers mega-tasking power
• 10, 8, or 6 cores deliver uncompromised performance for mega-tasking when simultaneous, compute-intensive, multi-threaded workloads are stacked. With an Intel® Core™ i7 processor Extreme Edition you’ll no longer experience frustrating delays.
• Content Creation Mega-tasking: editing + image composition + effects rendering + music composition + massive 4k file size upload.
• Gaming Mega-tasking: gameplay + broadcasting + background removal + encoding.

Extreme performance for enthusiasts with the new Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0
• A huge performance boost for single threaded workloads with the new Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.
