Intel has introduced its new Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition, offering gamers users up to 10 cores of performance.
“It’s designed not just for multi-tasking, but also for mega-tasking,” writes Gregory Bryant, corporate vice-president and GM of the Connected Home and Commercial Client at Intel. “Enthusiasts expect to push their systems with multiple compute intensive applications at the same time. That’s exactly what we’ve delivered.”
He says that, with a rapidly-growing community of more than 1,3-billion people worldwide, gamers are live-streaming, posting highlights online and extending their fan bases.
“In fact, e-sports has emerged as the fastest-growing part of the entertainment sector.”
The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition adds new Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, which steers applications to the highest-performing core, giving single-threaded experiences a huge performance boost.
With 40 PCIe lanes connected directly into the CPU, gamers have a variety of options at their fingertips to expand their system’s capabilities with Intel SSD 750 Series of high-performance solid state drives, multiple discrete GFX cards and Thunderbolt 3 technology,” Bryant writes.
“Put all of that together and gamers can immerse themselves in vivid 4K gameplay while sharing the experience live with their community – without slowing down or looking back. And did I mention our Extreme Edition processor is unlocked? We know unlocked processors are important to enthusiasts, and the new Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition gives overclockers the headroom and tools they want.”
The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition delivers virtual reality with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. “So whether gaming or creating in VR environments, gamers and enthusiasts can count on the most vivid, immersive or realistic experiences possible now – and be ready for what’s to come,” Bryant points out.
He adds that it’s easy to capture ultra hi-definition video from phones and cameras, while the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition helps both professional and novice filmmakers to edit in native 4K.
“With up to 10 cores and 20 threads of performance, it’s possible to work on virtually every aspect of a project simultaneously. Here, mega-tasking means staying in the groove without the system becoming a roadblock.”
The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition family of processors is being launched at Computex, currently taking place in Taiwan.
