The Core i7-6700K is often thought as quickest Intel chip, but performance seekers know the true limit of modern consumer CPU power is found in the Extreme Edition, a special set of Intel hardware that runs on its own, separate chipset. Now, the latest Extreme Edition is here, in the form of the massive Core i7-6950X.

With ten cores, this chip beats Intel’s old record for core count on a consumer CPU by a pair. Yet the clockspeed still sits at a comfortable 3GHz base clock, with a 3.5GHz Turbo Boost maximum. It’s packed to the brim with new features designed for enthusiasts and high-end gamers, like Turbo Boost 3.0, granular overclocking controls, and four channel DDR4-2,400MHz support.
