Intel Core i7 920 Processor BX80601920

You have to see the most significant architectural change in the x86 personal computer
processor architecture in 13 years, the Intel Core i7. Intel's engineers have completely reinvented
their CPU design, removing the antiquated Front Side Bus and replacing it with the new
Intel QuickPath Interconnect, delivering up to 6.4 GT/s.

Also new to the Core i7 line is the integrated memory controller, supporting Triple
Channel DDR3 Memory allowing for more maximum memory capacity and performance,
up to 24GB on some boards, and faster access times. Located directly on the CPU semiconductor
die is 256KB per core of L2 cache and 8MB L3 cache shared across all four cores means
the CPU can do more without having to access the main memory, further increasing performance.

The Intel Core i7 processor is the latest in cutting edge processor technology for the desktop PC.
Based on the new Intel Nehalem microarchitecture, the Intel Core i7 processor delivers four
complete execution cores within a single processor along with the rebirth of Intel HyperThreading Technology,
delivering unprecedented performance and responsiveness in multi-threaded and multi-tasking
business and home use environments and the ability to simultaneously process up to 8 seperate threads.
The unprecedented performance of the Intel Core i7 processor is made possible by each of the four
complete execution cores delivering the full power of Intel Nehalem microarchitecture. More instructions
can be carried out per clock cycle, shorter and wider pipelines execute commands more quickly, and improved
bus lanes move data throughout the system faster.
This quad-core, eight-thread processor represents Intel's continued leadership and drive of multi-core processing and more parallel computing.
