CPU Features

Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0: Dynamically increases the processor frequency up to 4.7GHz when applications demand more performance. Speed when you need it, energy efficiency when you don’t.

Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology: Allows each processor core to work on two tasks at the same time for up to 12 total independent tasks (threads) providing parallel processing capability for better multi-tasking with threaded applications.

Intel® Smart Cache: 12MB of shared cached allows faster access to your data by enabling dynamic and efficient allocation of the cache to match the needs of each core significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance.

CPU Overclocking Enabled (with Intel® Z370 chipset): Fully unlocked core multiplier, power, per core overclocking, base clock and memory ratios enable ultimate flexibility for overclocking.

Graphics Overclocking Enabled (with Intel® Z370 chipset): Unlocked graphics multiplier allows for overclocking to boost the graphics clock speed.

Integrated Memory Controller: Supports 2 channels of DDR4-2666 memory with 2 DIMMs per channel. Support for memory based on the Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP) specification.

PCI Express* 3.0 Interface: Supports up to 8 GT/s for fast access to peripheral devices and networking with up to 16 lanes configurable as 1x16, 2x8, or 1x8 and 2x4 depending on the motherboard design.

Chipset/Motherboard Compatibility: Compatible with all Intel® 300 Series chipsets with the latest BIOS and drivers.

Intel® UHD Graphics 630: Integrated 3D performance with support for Microsoft DirectX* 12 and Ultra HD 4K resolution display for immersive mainstream gaming. The Intel® UHD Graphics 630 dynamic graphics frequency ranges up to 1200MHz.

- Vibrant Media: Enhanced, built-in visual features deliver a seamless visual PC experience for rich Ultra HD 4K entertainment and HD gaming.
- Intel® Quick Sync Video Technology: Media processing for incredibly fast conversion of video files for portable media players or online sharing including support for HEVC 10-bit (H.265) encode/decode to playback premium 4K Ultra HD content from selected service providers.
