3.5GHz Turbo/4.0GHz Turbo Max

This processor is a pretty impressive piece of kit but the information on the Overclockers page is slightly misleading.

Out of the box without special software installed (that may only apply to some motherboards/BIOSes) the nominal maximum speed of the processor is only 3.5GHz. That is with the standard Turbo Boost 3.0 feature.

If your particular motherboard includes support for Turbo Boost 3.0 Max then it will be able to achieve 4.0GHz but only for configured applications as I understand it.

I had upgraded from an i7-4790K and while on a CPU power basis this processor seems to stomp all over it. I have found that 3D performance with a GTX 980 Ti has taken a 50% hit in the Passmark benchmarks. At first I thought this might have been due to the PCI-X slot being operated at half speed but the evidence to date indicates that the given card is operating at X16 as it was before.

Despite the benchmark observation above I have not yet noted an adverse affect to in-game performance.

Overall, I would recommend this processor but beware of the caveats mentioned above.


amazing CPU

absolute perfection best chip ever runs Garrys Mod in ultra maxxed out Minecraft too 30 fps pluss brilliant for photoshop too paint and all other hi performance graphical platforms
