The Core i7-10700K 3.8 GHz Eight-Core LGA 1200 Processor from Intel has a base clock speed of 3.8 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel vPro technology, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-d virtualization technology for directed I/O, and Intel Hyper-Threading technology.
With Intel Turbo Max 3.0, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 5.13 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 8 cores with 16 threads in an LGA 1200 socket, has 16MB of cache memory, and 16 PCIe lanes.
Having 8 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 16 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports 128GB of dual-channel 2933 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 10th-generation technology.
Graphically, the Core i7-10700K uses the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 630 chipset, which has a base frequency of 350 MHz and a dynamic frequency of 1.2 GHz. If you need even more performance, this processor is unlocked, which lets you overclock the processor over its maximum speed. However, this is not recommended, as it will void the limited 3-year warranty.
Please note that this processor does not include a heatsink or fan and requires a separately-sold CPU cooling solution.
