Intel is shipping its new chip, the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition which was formerly code-named Broadwell-e, for its target market of PC gamers and VR content creation professionals.
The seventh generation Intel Core processors are based on the 14nm fabrication process, a part of the ‘semi-Tock’ release, and come with Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 for more efficient core allocation for single-threaded processes.
There are four versions in this series and the entire series is unlocked for overclocking, with the highlight being the $1,723 Intel Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition with 10 cores and 20 threads.
The company announced that these Kaby Lake processors, along with its Apollo Lake processors, have already gone into production and are aimed at a release later this quarter. Its Optane memory technology will go into production this year, it added.
The Intel Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition is Intel’s first deca-core desktop CPU – and it’s meant for gaming. It features a 3.0GHz base clock, a 3.5GHz Turbo Boost clock, and 25MB of L3 Cache.
The Core i7-6950X is said to be 35 percent faster in 3D rendering than the Haswell-E generation flagship, the Intel Core i7-5960X.
The chip giant has also introduced three other 7th generation Intel Core i7 Enthusiast Broadwell-E processors, the 6900K, 6850K, and 6800K.

CCTV cameras lying idle
BETRAWATI— The CCTV cameras installed at main market area and road side of Bidur Municipality in Nuwakot are lying idle.
As many as 25 sets of CCTV which were installed on the initiative of Nuwakot Chamber of Commerce and Industry are now dysfunctional.
The cameras were set up at the cost of Rs 3.5 million. The concerned side has not paid any attention to repair the cameras in the public which were helpful in maintaining security in the areas.
Right now almost all the CCTVs installed in the public places are not in functioning condition, said Basanta Kunwar, Superintendant of Police.
The cameras were installed a year ago in collaboration among the Nuwakot District Development Committee, Bidur Municipality, different banks and financial institutions.Follow @gorkhapost
