Intel Core i7 Processor – Worlds fastest desktop processor
Intel introduced its most advanced desktop processor ever, the Intel Core i7 processor. The Core i7 processor is the first member of a new family of Nehalem processor designs and is the most sophisticated ever built, with new technologies that boost performance on demand and maximize data throughput. The Intel Core i7 processor speeds video editing, immersive games and other popular Internet and computer activities by up to 40 percent without increasing power consumption.
With faster, intelligent multi-core technology that applies processing power dynamically when needed most, the new Intel Core i7 processors deliver an incredible breakthrough in PC performance. They’re the best desktop processors on the planet. These new quad core chips have a 8MB shared L3 cache, a 1MB cache (265kb cache per core), a triple channel DD3 memory controller, Thermal Design Power rating of 130W, and simultaneous multi-threading. The Core i7 chips will easily reside on Intel X58-based motherboards with LGA1366.
