Intel Core i7….

Intel Core i7 is a name that the company Intel uses for the computer processors it makes for desktop and laptop computers . Intel uses this name for the fastest processors that they think will be used to build computers for consumers instead of business people. Intel started to use this name in 2008. Before 2008, Intel used the name “Core 2” for this kind of processor.

There are different types of Core i7 processor. The name does not name a type. Instead, it is the name for all of the fast processors that Intel thinks should be sold to consumers. Intel uses two other “Core i-” names for its processors for consumers: “Core i5” and “Core i3.” Intel uses the “Core i5” name for processors that are not quite so fast as the “Core i7” processors. The “Core i5” processors can do most things that most people want to do quickly except for playing some types of computer games. Intel uses the “Core i3” name for processors for computers that are even slower than “Core i5” processors. “Core i3” can do most simple things for most people.[1][2][3][4]

Intel uses a different name, Xeon, for processors that Intel makes for “server” computers for businesses. Some of the “Core i7” processors are almost the same as some of the “Xeon” processors, but each of the Xeon processors is a little bit different than the “Core i7” processor, because a “server” computer is not the same as a consumer computer. Intel also makes other “Xeon” processors that are not the same as any “Core i7” processor. Unlike the Core i7, Xeon processors support ECC (error corrected) memory, and multiple CPUs on the same motherboard.

The Core i7-4930K 3.4 GHz Processor from Intel is equipped with 6 cores and 12 threads and can be installed in a FCLGA2011 socket. This processer comes equipped with 12MB of cache. Connect a variety of peripherals to a PC equipped with this processor as it supports PCIe revision 3.0. In addition, this processor includes Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology, Thermal Monitoring Technologies, Intel Smart Response Technology, and more.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology*
Intel Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases the processor’s frequency as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom to give you a burst of speed when you need it, and increased energy efficiency when you don’t.
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology*
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x)*
Intel Virtualization Technology allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. It offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)*
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O continues from the existing support for IA-32 (VT-x) and Itanium processor (VT-i) virtualization, adding new support for I/O-device virtualization. Intel VT-d can help end users improve the security and reliability of systems, and also improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environments.
Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)*
Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), provides acceleration for memory-intensive virtualized applications. Extended Page Tables in Intel Virtualization Technology platforms reduce the memory and power overhead costs, and increase battery life through hardware optimization of page table management.
Intel 64*
Intel 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop, and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4GB of both virtual and physical memory.
Idle States
Idle States (C-states) are used to save power when the processor is idle. C0 is the operational state, meaning that the CPU is doing useful work. C1 is the first idle state, C2 the second, and so on, where more power saving actions are taken for numerically higher C-states.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology is an advanced means of enabling high performance while meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies such as Separation between Voltage and Frequency Changes, and Clock Partitioning and Recovery.
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
Thermal Monitoring Technologies protect the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features. An on-die Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) detects the core’s temperature, and the thermal management features reduce package power consumption (and thereby temperature, when required) in order to remain within normal operating limits.
Intel Identity Protection Technology*
Intel Identity Protection Technology is a built-in security token technology that helps provide a simple, tamper-resistant method for protecting access to your online customer and business data from threats and fraud. Intel IPT provides a hardware-based proof of a unique user’s PC to websites, financial institutions, and network services, thus providing verification that it is not malware attempting to log in. Intel IPT can be a key component in two-factor authentication solutions to protect your information.
Intel Smart Response Technology
Intel Smart Response Technology combines the fast performance of a small solid state drive with the large capacity of a hard disk drive.
AES New Instructions
Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI) are a set of instructions that enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI are valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, such as applications that perform bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption.
Execute Disable Bit*
Execute Disable Bit is a hardware-based security feature that can reduce exposure to viruses and malicious-code attacks, and prevent harmful software from executing and propagating on the server or network.
