Intel i7-5820K overview

  • 1Description

The Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3 GHz Processor from Intel features 6 cores and 12 threads and can be installed in an LGA2011-v3 socket. This processor is compatible with DDR4-1333/1600/2133 memory and it is equipped with 15MB cache. In addition, this processor includes Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology, Intel Thermal Monitoring Technologies, Intel Smart Response Technology, and more.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0*
Intel Turbo Boost Technology dynamically increases the processor's frequency as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom to give you a burst of speed when you need it, and increased energy efficiency when you don't.
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology*
Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology is an advanced means of enabling high performance while meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load. Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology builds upon that architecture using design strategies such as Separation between Voltage and Frequency Changes, and Clock Partitioning and Recovery.
Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x)*
Intel Virtualization Technology allows one hardware platform to function as multiple "virtual" platforms. It offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)*
Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O continues from the existing support for IA-32 (VT-x) and Itanium processor (VT-i) virtualization, adding new support for I/O-device virtualization. Intel VT-d can help end users improve the security and reliability of the systems, and also improve performance of I/O devices in virtualized environments.
Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables (EPT)*
Intel VT-x with Extended Page Tables, also known as Second Level Address Translation (SLAT), provides acceleration for memory-intensive virtualized applications. Extended Page Tables in Intel Virtualization Technology platforms reduce the memory and power overhead costs, and increase battery life through hardware optimization of page table management.
Intel 64*
Intel 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop, and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4GB of both virtual and physical memory.
Idle States
Idle States (C-states) are used to save power when the processor is idle. C0 is the operational state, meaning that the CPU is performing useful tasks. C1 is the first idle state, C2 the second, and so on, where more power saving actions are taken for numerically higher C-states.
Thermal Monitoring Technologies
Thermal Monitoring Technologies protect the processor package and the system from thermal failure through several thermal management features. An on-die Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) detects the core's temperature, and the thermal management features reduce package power consumption (and thereby temperature, when required) in order to remain within normal operating limits.
Intel Identity Protection Technology*
Intel Identity Protection Technology is a built-in security token technology that helps provide a simple, tamper-resistant method for protecting access to your online customer and business data from threats and fraud. Intel IPT provides a hardware-based proof of a unique user's PC to websites, financial institutions, and network services, thus providing verification that it is not malware attempting to log in. Intel IPT can be a key component in two-factor authentication solutions to protect your information.
Intel Smart Response Technology
Intel Smart Response Technology combines the fast performance of a small solid state drive with the large capacity of a hard disk drive.
AES New Instructions
Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (AES-NI) are a set of instructions that enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI are valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, such as applications that perform bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption.
Execute Disable Bit*
Execute Disable Bit is a hardware-based security feature that can reduce exposure to viruses and malicious-code attacks as well as prevent harmful software from executing and propagating on your server or network.
Conflict Free
"Conflict free" means "DRC conflict free", which is defined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules to mean products that do not contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries.

    Intel i7-5820K reviews

    Core i7-5820K 3.3 GHz Processor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line processor for its price I knew exactly what I needed my processor for, video editing. I wanted a processor with multiple cores so that Adobe premiere could work even faster! I also knew I wanted a fast overall speed for when I'm using other applications or games that don't utilize all of the hyperthreaded cores that Intel provides. 3.3 ghz is the standard speed of this processor it usually clocks at about 3.5 for me while running premiere pro. I was considering the next model up the i7 5930k for its slightly faster speeds but with a near $100 price difference this model was the obvious choice. This is quite honestly the greatest processor you can buy for its price tag, an it will only continue to decline in price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 6700K price with better milty core performance Well i only had this CPU for about few weeks now. Still haven't OCed it yet. I do a lot of 3d design work with ton of rendering in 3ds max. I do play games as well. My decision was either to by 6700k or this CPU which were both priced almost identically. I opted for this even though stock speeds are lower. My old PC was two quad core xeon server system which still can put up a fight with bunch of new i7s. This single 5820k renders over twice as fast in 3ds max. I gained bunch of FPS in games with same GPU from old PC. It runs extremely cool on cooler master D92 air cooler. Most likely best bang for the buck if you are into encoding and rendering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Video editing machine The 6 cores in this seems to be the perfect match for the video editing that I do. I never wait on the processor catching up even at Full rendering with a full screen. The rendering for the final output so far has always been faster than real time. I mainly use Adobe Premier Pro and AfterEffects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OC'd @ 4.6GHz WHAT A POWERHOUSE! Running a work station off of this bad boy. I know it's clocked extremely high, but my liquid cooler keeps it under 50C at max load.For sure worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast. Powerful. Awesome. It is a great processor and it's been working flawlessly. Had an old system with 64gb of ram and put this in a system with 32gb and it runs almost just as fast. Great buy. Definitely recommend.
