The Intel Core i7-2600K is a high-end quad-core consumer desktop processor compatible with LGA1155 socket types. It features an unlocked multiplier for enhanced overclocking performance, integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics and Intel Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, the i7-2600K sports 32 nanometer lithography and a max TDP of 95 watts.
The i7-2600K's unlocked multiplier allows enthusiasts to achieve faster performance by independently raising its clock speeds without impacting other system components. Its integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics allow the i7-2600K to handle high definition and 3D media right out of the box with any motherboard that supports its on-die graphics. Meanwhile, the i7-2600K's Hyper-Threading technology allows each individual processor core to perform two tasks simultaneously, effectively making it behave like an eight-core processor for greater efficiency.
