Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Intel Core i7-860 processor is the midrange iteration of Intel's flagship i7 family. It combines the power of four 2.80 GHz computing cores into a single processor, guaranteeing enough processing power for the most demanding applications. With 8 MB of smart cache, the Core i7-860 processor ensures that you get maximum responsiveness from your system, even when several intensive programs run simultaneously. Compatible with motherboards based on the Intel X58 Express chipset, the Core i7-860 processor takes your computing and gaming experience to the next level.

Intel Core i7-860 Processor features:
  • Four 2.80 GHz cores for better multitasking and multithreaded performance.
  • 8 MB of smart cache.
  • Integrated memory controller delivers higher memory bandwidth.
  • Turbo Boost Technology allows for extra processing speed.


With four cores in one processor, users will experience better multitasking and multithreaded performance.

Powerful New Microarchitecture Eliminates Slowdown
With the Intel Core i7-860 processor, Intel engineers have introduced a radical new style of architecture. They replaced the front side bus -- a longtime staple of processor design -- with a new interconnect technology called Direct Media Interface (DMI). Using DMI, the Core i7-860 processor achieves superior levels of bandwidth, and can use its four computing cores to their maximum potential.

To put it simply, users will enjoy faster and more streamlined processing than ever before. Your computer will handle multiple projects and applications without the slowdown you'd experience with a lesser processor.

Extremely intensive programs like high-definition media editors will run more smoothly and responsively. And you'll be able to experience next-generation games without frame-rate hiccups and slowdowns.

New Technologies Boost Performance
The Intel Core i7-860 processor also makes use of several other cutting-edge technologies:

  • Turbo Boost Technology allows the processor to run up to 133 MHz faster when it's operating below power/thermal limits.
  • Hyper-threading Technology enables more efficient use of processor resources, making the most of highly threaded software like media players and next-generation games.
  • Smart Cache Memory increases available RAM resources, leading to less lag while multi-tasking.
Media Editing and Sharing Easier than Ever
Whether editing high-definition videos, touching up family photos, or splicing up music, the Intel Core i7-860 processor provides the processing power needed. The processor's four cores are optimized to keep up with the most advanced digital editing software. It also accelerates DVD encoding and compression, allowing you to easily share your HD home videos with everyone.

Unparalleled Gaming Performance
With the advent of next-generation games, PC gaming is more immersive than ever. The latest games are taking advantage of multi-threaded programming, allowing for more realistic graphics, physics, and artificial intelligence (AI). But you'll need more than just a good graphics card with high GPU output to fully experience all these effects. Underlying the visual realism and advanced AI scripts are thousands of high-speed calculations that your CPU must process.

Fortunately, the Intel Core i7-860 processor is specifically designed to handle these calculations. Using multi-thread architecture, it has the ability to process thousands of graphical characteristics at once, resulting in a smooth and lag-free experience. Intel worked closely with CryTek -- the developers of the advanced game engine behind such games as Crysis and Far Cry -- to guarantee that gamers have an immersive and lifelike experience.

The Intel Core i7-860 processor is backed by a three-year limited warranty.

Its a very good and fast processor.

This is a great CPU that will can handle anything you can through at it and won't be obsolete in a few years.

Easily can be pushed to 3.8Ghz on air cooling, while maintaining acceptable temperatures.

If you're looking high-performance CPU that is also energy efficient and doesn't cost an arm and a leg then look no further.

The i7 860 has all the horsepower you'll need for fast picture editing and even editing AVCHD videos. But what really is cool is how little power it uses when your only checking e-mail and on the web. I built my desktop PC with this CPU and a Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P mother, Corsair 620HX power supply and a Western Digital 640GB "Blue" HD. For light duty task like web browsing it consumes just 65 Watts! When it really kicks in high gear for serious number crunching it goes to 110 Watts. This is the result of Intel's Turbo technology that can turn off cores that are not in use. Plus if you give it a really good cooling system it can even drive the clock rate up to the thermal limit. This ability to save power is so important as it translates into less electricity, less wasted heat and noise and increased reliability. For me this was ideal since I wanted a computer that was super quiet when running basics tasks but had the muscle for demanding applications when needed.

This is a great CPU that will can handle anything you can through at it and won't be obsolete in a few years.

Not a lot to say here. This is a great, powerful CPU that overclocks well. Easily can be pushed to 3.8Ghz on air cooling, while maintaining acceptable temperatures.

It was a huge upgrade over an E8400 (overclocked to 3.6Ghz), in gaming as well as multitasking in apps like Photoshop, Visual Studio, and SQL Server.

Turbo mode on these chips is excellent when using single thread apps. The performance of the Turbo mode is better than the 1366 socket brothers and sisters. If you're an avid overclocker, this means nothing, because you'll likely have that option turned off to manually handle it.

It's a beast of a chip that will definitely increase all of your benchmarks in an upgrade form previous technology.

Owned this chip for over 2 years now & it's still blazing fast, can still max out games like nothing with it's stock speed. Temps I'm getting are 40ishC which isn't bad at all.

using w/ gigabyte p55ud4p MB. started flawlessly. very stable. set the bus speed to 140, and the mb adjusts the clock according to work load. seems to be the best compromise between power savings and performance.

Cheapest i7 I could find in any chipset. Works perfectly in my EVGA P55 Micro motherboard. Now to burn it up with some overclocking. :-)

Excellent product, So far it has gone well although a bit expensive at the time, but I recommend it, it is logical that there is now better quality processors in terms of performance, but is a good option.
