Intel Core i7-5960X

Intel introduces Intel Core i7-5960X, the first octa-core desktop processor which boasts extreme performance and is designed for professionals, demanding gamers and enthusiasts. Compared to the previous CPU generation, Haswell-E brings a significantly increased computing performance, more effecient power management and a wide range of new technologies. Furthermore, the time-tested Hyper-Threading technology allows simultaneous processing of up to sixteen threads. Along with an unlocked multiplier and the advantages of the 22nm manufacturing process, these attributes make this processor a truly uncompromising solution.

New Generation of Lightning-fast Cache

Data access is extremely snappy thanks to the massive L3 cache with the size of 20 MB, which ensures immediate response in all applications.

The Haswell-E CPU family also introduces a quad-channel memory controller with a phenomenal maximum transfer rate and a full-fledged quad-channel memory support for DDR4 modules with a frequency of 2133 MHz. Additionally, the efficient algorithms of the memory controller give you an incredibly low latency and guarantee high performance even in the most demanding applications.

Automatic Overclocking

The second generation of the Turbo Boost technology boosts the clock frequency up to 3.5 GHz and enables the cores to exceed their stock frequency. The maximum frequency depends on the number of active cores, while the length of the overclocking period depends on the workload and operating environment. The upper frequency limit is determined by reaching threshold values of the four indicators (number of active cores, electric current drawn, power consumption, CPU temperature).

Key Features

  • Uncompromising computing power with great overclocking potential
  • Compatible with the LGA 2011-3 socket (the latest revision of LGA 2011)
  • Eight cores operating at frequencies of 3.6 GHz
  • Requires a high-quality cooler

i7-5960X own and honestly the processor could be faster in games, it is the lower frequency nuclei and a factory clock only 3GHz and Intel to fit into a specified TDP. For the game, the nevyužijú more than 4-6 cores, so Herne fastest processor on the current games is undoubtedly i7-4790K with turbom to 4,4Ghz at 4 physical cores. However i7-5960X games stand a very solid development and exploitation of the games proceed, 8 cores, so this processor will still have to be long to upgrade. Its advantage is not primarily focus on non-game apps that the engine is able to get the most full and the menu will be compared to AMD and behold 4-6 nuclear Intel processor, a more powerful and besides serverovej sphere (Xeon, Opteron) is not found rival. 8 Intel cores can not be compared with the current AMD FX CPU, because they have not written 8 months nuclei, but in fact they are four modular and each module contains two small nuclei which are not fully independent and particularly its gaming performance is also weak against Intel in 4 nuclear and to use their professional i7-5960X power crumbled. Sadly, the high-end (especially LGA 2011-3) has Intel by the AMD competition and it is in this segment cenovom absolute monopoly, and therefore a its eight nuclear i7-5960X may zapýtať such a sum.
8 physical cores versus AMD FX processor consumption good solid gaming performance it will be a long time to upgrade price at current games there faster Intel processors at significantly lower cost base rate only 3 GHz

In comparison with an 8-core AMD FX-8370 is INTEL twice more powerful and thereby it has a lower frequency. Already comparison on a single core Intel is much more powerful and it shows especially of what vskutočnosti CPU is of good quality. AMD prosecute, INTEL is always ahead ... php? cpu = + AMD FX-8370 + Eight-Core & id = 2367

At home I also have two processors on their plate, and we still mows minecraft and I do not even smoothing turned on. It can be used only for routine work such as digging small holes .: and construct a small home. Odporúčam prefer to buy intel e5
