Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition: 38 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

6 x 3.46GHz
Intel Xeon Platinum 8180: 28 x 2.5GHz

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
1066MHz
Intel Xeon Gold 5122: 2670MHz

3. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
32nm
Intel Atom C3958: 14nm

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.
12
Intel Xeon Platinum 8176: 56

5. L2 cache

A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
1.5MB
Intel Xeon Platinum 8176: 28MB

6. PassMark result

This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
9374
Intel Core i7-5960X: 16059

7. L1 cache

A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
384KB
AMD Opteron 6180 SE: 1536KB

8. thermal design power (TDP)

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
130W
Intel Atom Z650: 3W

9. Supports 64-bit

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.

10. L2 core

More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
0.25MB/core
Intel Core i5-4200Y: 2.5MB/core

11. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
25.6GB/s
Intel Xeon E5504: 192.2GB/s

12. turbo clock speed

When the CPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
3.73GHz
Intel Core i5-7200U: 3100GHz

13. GeekBench result

This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2017)
