Release Date30 Jun 2017 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP112WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L3 Cache6MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography14nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketNot sureThe motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it

Core i5-7640X 4.0GHz compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Core i5-7640X 4.0GHz has exceptional performance. Its 4 cores clocked at 4 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds and allow multiple processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is now over 4 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from Intel.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 14 nanometers, the Core i5-7640X 4.0GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, although with a Thermal Design Power of 112W it requires a large amount of power to run.
