Features at a Glance

Features Benefits
Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 Identifies the four fastest cores on the processor to provide improved lightly-threaded performance on X-series processors. The driver allows users to set preferred applications that will direct workloads to the fastest cores.1
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.01 3 
Dynamically increases the processor’s frequency, as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology)1
Delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can be configured to take advantage of these additional threads to assign workloads to be completed in parallel.
Integrated Memory Controller Supports up to four channels of DDR4-2933 memory with up to 2 DIMMs per channel and support for 32GB density, for a maximum 256GB of total memory capacity. Support for the Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP) specification, revision 2.0 for DDR4.
Intel® Optane™ Memory Support Support for Intel® Optane™ memory technology, which provides performance improvements as well as fast application response times for system acceleration.
Intel® Smart Cache Up to 24.75MB of shared cached allows fast access to your data by enabling dynamic and efficient allocation of the cache to match the needs of each core reducing latency to frequently used data.
Overclocking Enabled2 4 Fully unlocked core multipliers, power, base clock, and DDR4 memory ratios for amazing flexibility with overclocking.
Chipset/Motherboard Compatibility Supported by the Intel® X299 Chipset.
Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) A fast, secure AES engine for a variety of encryption apps, including whole disk encryption, file storage encryption, conditional access of HD content, internet security, and VOIP. Consumers benefit from protected internet and email content, plus fast, responsive disk encryption.5
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)1
Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Intel® AVX-5121
Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) is a set of instructions that can accelerate performance for workloads and usages such as scientific simulations, financial analytics, artificial intelligence (AI)/deep learning, 3D modeling and analysis, image and audio/video processing, cryptography, and data compression.
Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost)1
Intel® Deep Learning Boost (Intel® DL Boost), formerly called Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI), is a new set of Intel® AVX-512 instructions. These instructions accomplish in a single instruction what formerly required three instructions for INT8 operations, significantly accelerating inference performance for deep-learning workloads optimized to use VNNI. For more info, visit: intel.ai/intel-deep-learning-boost/.
