3.Intel Core i9-7980XE X-Series Extreme Edition

PRICE:1990 USD

Intel Core i9-7980XE X-Series Extreme Edition comes under the list of most expensive and powerful processors in the world. Its an 18 Cores & 36 Threads processor. The processor provides a Clock speed of 2.6  and can get a maximum turbo speed of up to 4.2 GHz.Intel uses its Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 to enhance performance in this processor.

Core i9-7980XE is also powered with Intel Hyper-Threading technology that enables each core of a processor to handle two instruction threads independently which provides the ability of a processor to handle up to 36 threads at a time.44 PCI Express 3.0 is provided in Core i9-7980XE which can support multiple graphics cards and PCIe-based M.2 SSDs.LGA 2066 socket motherboards are compatible Intel Core i9-7980XE with a power requirement of 165W. The Core i9-7980XE processor can support DDR4 2666 MHz ram modules.

Intel uses Smart Cache technology in which All cores of the processor have last level cache access to the entire. Intel Smart Cache feature has also a power-saving feature that flushes memory based on demand whenever there is a period of inactivity, this ensures your favorite applications stand with your demands. Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 is used in this processor in this technology your processor’s fastest cores are detected and heavy workload is directed to that core.
