there are four i7 3770 models from intel. the fastest is the i7 3770k it can be overclocked to 4.4 Ghz. the standard i7 3770 is locked and can not be overclocked the power saving i7 3770s is locked and is underclocked to save power. and the i7 3770t is locked and is super underclocked for powersavings.. this is the i7 3770s model. I built a unit that the buyer wanted to run a lot of handbrake decoding. this cpu will use 4 plus 4 cores and do a good job with handbrake. then if you don't want to run a high use cpu program it will go into a lower power use. it was a good price and came as a full kit. I was happy with this item.

Product Overview

Whether it’s HD media, 3D gaming, or serious multitasking, unlock your full potential with the 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3770S processor. The entirely new 22nm process employed by the 3nd generation Intel Core i7-3770S Processor achieves dramatic performance gain at low operating voltage. With top-of-the-line speed complemented by Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, a rich set of features, and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, it delivers 3rd generation visibly smart performance at its best with the flexibility to set your system specs just the way you like. Moreover, the 3rd generation Intel Core processor with alpha suffix “S” that indicates “Performance Optimized Lifestyle” has a lower TDP of 65W, ideal for both performance and energy conscious users.

Intel Revolutionary 22nm transistors technology
Transistors have now entered the third dimension. Intel brings 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate transistors (the core of microprocessors) to its third generation Core processors Ivy Bridge. Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistors are an important innovation needed to continue Moore’s law and deliver an unprecedented combination of performance and power efficiency. By forming conducting channels on three sides of a vertical fin structure, Tri-Gate transistors can have multiple fins connected together to increase total drive strength for higher performance. The new 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate transistors can deliver up to 37% performance increase at low voltage and more than 50% power reduction at low voltage.

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology)
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources—higher processing throughput—and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
More intelligent, energy-efficient, and dynamic than previous generation, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 gives you accelerating performance when you need it. It delivers an even greater automatic speed increase by allowing processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency for demanding applications if the processor is operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.

Intel Smart Cache Technology dynamically allocates the shared cache to each processor core based on workload. This efficient, multi-core-optimized implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from faster, more efficient cache subsystem resulting in significantly reduced latency for frequently used data and improved performance.

Built-in visuals
The visual features built into the 3nd generation Intel Core processor family deliver everything you need to enjoy a stunning and seamless visual experience. Intel Quick Sync Video and newly-added Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) make media processing incredibly fast. New built-in Intel HD Graphics with DirectX 11 support delivers discrete 3D graphics performance without the needed cost and power of a discrete graphics card, and features Intel Clear Video Technology that enhances video playback, image quality, and color fidelity for a premium visual experience. What’s more, add another dimension to what you see on your PC with Intel InTRU 3D technology which supports stereoscopic 3D Blu-ray playback in full 1080p resolution over HDMI 1.4 and premium audio.
