Performance that puts gaming first.
Revolutionary performance and multitasking.
With the highest clock speeds and innovative new architecture, you’ll be able to take your game to new heights while secondary apps work seamlessly in the background. Maximum clock speed up to 5.5 GHz (1) 16 cores (8 performance cores, 8 efficient cores) 24 threads (16 performance cores, 8 efficient cores) without crashing and overclocking. capable (2)
Divide and conquer.
Intel’s new hybrid performance architecture integrates two core families into a single CPU, keeping everything in your gaming universe running smoothly. Intel Thread Director prioritizes and manages workloads, dispatching tasks to the best core for the job. (4) P cores are designed for performance in single and lightly ramped workloads, enhancing activities like gaming and productivity. The electronic cores are optimized for multi-threaded performance, minimizing interruptions from secondary tasks.
Performance beyond cores.
The new processor architecture is also compatible with the latest platform innovations, giving you performance improvements throughout your PC. Compatible with PCIe Gen 5 and DDR5 for high-performance components like memory and graphics. Thunderbolt 4 and Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6/6E (Gig+) offer fast transfer speeds and connections to peripherals. (5) Separate overclocking controls for both core types give you nuanced customization.
