windwithme Posted May 4, 2010 Share Posted May 4, 2010 In the remembrance, the Core 2 Duo double-core processor was just announced by Intel at the Grand-Hotel in July 2006. After around a half-year later, Intel started Quad-Core era, which was following Core 2 Due structure to make Core 2 Quad CPU. After that, Intel launched Core i7 to enhance its performance with L3, HT and triple- channel functions in November 2008, even if Core i7 was based on Quad-core and simulated with Octa-core (eight-core) in use, but the market was still look forward to hearing from real Hexa-Core (six-core) CPU. After all, the real Hexa-Core CPU was released by Intel in March 16, 2010, meaning the generation was completed replaced by the era of Hexa-Core CPU. The first Hexa-Core CPU was named Core i7-980X Extreme Edition and the specs. is not only have Hyper-Threading, supports Turbo Boost, but supports un-locked frequency. The best frequency can reach to 3.6GHz. Moreover, the Entity of the Hexa-Core comes with Hyper-Threading technology, it can be up to 12-threading, abbreviated as 6C/12T, 32 nm processing, with 12MB of L3 cache. Above all, the Hexa-Core CPU shows the best standards at present. Hereinafter referred to as 980X EE, 980X EE belongs to LGA 1366-pin family, which supports X58 chipsets, and there’s no difference from the Non-Hexa-Core i7 on the surface. Difference with past Core i7 edition from the back of Core i7-980X EE Enclosed inside Cooler is the different from the past edition. There are 4 copper pipes in the bottom in addition to enhance spreading the heat. As regards Mother Board segment, EVGA is very popular in USA and Europe portion recently, X58 4 Classified - Way SLI is the highest version in their product line, EVGA should put out edition of USB3/SATA3 in the future. The tone of black and red match pretty well and quite showy 7 X PCIe X16/X8 is greatest selling point in this kind of X58, to build NF200 chip inside to support supreme SLI 4 - WAY display cards too The black heat sink is the south bridge ICH10R inside There are 8 SATAII device inside for expanding Triple channel is particular in X58, there are 2 kits DIMM altogether can be expanded to DDR3 24GB capacity at most Use three phases power supply to strengthen DDR3 stability LGA 1366 CPU Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
