Intel Core i7-11700K 8-Core 3.6GHz [Not Released]

Cores8More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.6GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameRocket LakeThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date31 Mar 2021 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP125WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache512KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache2048KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache16MBThe 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 SocketLGA 1200The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultiplieryesAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Core i7-11700K 8-Core 3.6GHz compatibility review

Overall, the Intel Core i7-11700K 8-Core 3.6GHz has exceptional performance. Its 8 cores clocked at 3.6 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds and allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is under a year old, meaning it should be based on recent technologies and manufacturer support should almost certainly still be available.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 14 nanometers, the Core i7-11700K 8-Core 3.6GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, although with a Thermal Design Power of 125W it requires a large amount of power to run.
