Intel® Core™ i7 Processors
8 Performance-cores. 8 Efficient-cores. It’s time to break the gaming speed limit.
Go Beyond Performance
Find out what happens when already game-changing performance hybrid architecture1 gets built on. We’ve taken our technology to another level and given Intel® Thread Director2 more cores to choose from, so you don’t have to choose or prioritize tasks when you’re gaming. Just enjoy constant speed and constant performance.
Product and Performance Information
Performance hybrid architecture combines two core microarchitectures, Performance-cores (P-cores) and Efficient-cores (E-cores), on a single processor die first introduced on 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. Select 13th Gen Intel® Core™ processors do not have performance hybrid architecture, only P-cores, and have same cache size as prior generation; see ark.intel.com for SKU details.
Built into the hardware, Intel® Thread Director is provided only in performance hybrid architecture configurations of 12th Gen or newer Intel® Core™ processors; OS enablement is required. Available features and functionality vary by OS.
Nearly 3x faster Wi-Fi connectivity versus standard Wi-Fi. See intel.com/PerformanceIndex (connectivity) for details. Results may vary.
Unlocked features are present with select chipsets and processor combinations. Altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications. Check with the manufacturers of system and components for additional details.
