The Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition is a 64-bit hexa-core top-of-the-line MPU introduced by Intel for the enthusiasts market. The i7-4960X served as Intel's flagship microprocessor for the Ivy Bridge microarchitecture - it was superseded by the Haswell-based i7-5960X MPU. Operating at 3.6 GHz with turbo frequency of 4 GHz for a single core, this chip supports 64 GiB of memory (DDR3) and has a TDP of 130 Watts.
