The Intel Core i7-2600 is a mid-range to high-end quad-core desktop consumer processor which supports Intel's LGA1155 processor socket type. It features 32 nanometer microarchitecture, a core clock speed of 3.4 GHz and a max TDP of 95 watts. Additionally, the i7-2600 sports Intel Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost technologies as well as integrated Intel HD 2000 graphics.
The i7-2600's Hyper-Threading technology effectively doubles its processing power, allowing each core to perform two actions simultaneously, making it behave more like an eight-core processor with threaded programs. Its Turbo Boost technology allows the i7-2600 to automatically raise its clock rate from 3.4 GHz to 3.8 GHz in order to keep your system running smoothly even under heavy load. Meanwhile, the i7-2600's on-die Intel HD 2000 graphics allow it to handle high definition and 3D video without the need for a separate graphics card.
