Quad-Core Processor Running at 3.4 GHz for Fast Performance

The Intel Core i7-2600K has four cores and runs at a speedy 3.4 GHz. It features an 8 MB L3 shared cache that is dynamically allocated to each processor core, based on workload. This reduces latency and improves performance.

Additionally, the i7 comes with Advanced Vector Extensions, a set of instructions to improve software performance for intensive applications like audio processing, audio codecs, and image and video editing applications.

Fully Unlocked Core for Overclocking

The Intel Core i7-2600K is fully unlocked, allowing gamers and enthusiasts to overclock the processor and achieve faster performance. With a fully unlocked processor, you can independently raise clock speeds without impacting other system components.

Turbo Boost for Extra Processor Speed

The Core i7-2600K features Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, allowing it to run at 3.8 GHz when the workload demands additional performance. The technology dynamically increases the processor's frequency as needed by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits. The result is adaptive performance that's more intelligent and energy efficient.

Hyper-Threading for Better Multitasking

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology allows each of the i7's four processor cores to work on two tasks at the same time, improving multitasking, speeding up workflow, and getting more done in less time. This makes your PC more responsive--and it makes that dreaded hourglass a thing of the past.

Built-In Visuals Provide Rich, Steady Graphics

The Core i7-2600K features built-in visuals that deliver a smooth graphic experience and eliminate the need for a discrete graphics card, reducing power consumption and system cost. The i7-2600K has a graphic clock speed of 850 MHz and speeds up to 1350 MHz when turbo is enabled.

Intel Quick Sync Video enables quick conversions of video files for portable media players or online sharing. Experience sharp images and rich color with Clear Video Technology, which provides visual quality and color fidelity enhancements for vivid high-definition and Blu-ray playback. Intel HD Graphics offers enhanced 3D performance for immersive mainstream and casual gaming without hesitations or interruptions.

The Core i7 is also equipped with Intel InTru3D, which provides stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution and premium audio via HDMI 1.4.

Intel Virtualization Technology

Intel Virtualization Technology allows multiple "virtual" environments to function on one hardware platform. It offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.

Optimized for Energy Efficiency

The Intel Core i7-2600K is designed to optimize every watt of electricity, resulting in a more energy-efficient system that is cooler and cheaper to run. In a system with other energy-efficient components, the processor can meet Energy Star specifications.

What's in the Box

Intel Core i7-2600K processor, fan/heat-sink cooling solution, warranty booklet, and Intel Inside logo label.
