The Intel Core i7-4930K is a desktop processor with 6 cores, launched in September 2013. It is part of the Core i7 lineup, using the Ivy Bridge-E architecture with Socket 2011. Thanks to Intel Hyper-Threading the core-count is effectively doubled, to 12 threads. Core i7-4930K has 12MB of L3 cache and operates at 3.4 GHz by default, but can boost up to 3.9 GHz, depending on the workload. Intel is making the Core i7-4930K on a 22 nm production node using 1,860 million transistors. You may freely adjust the unlocked multiplier on Core i7-4930K, which simplifies overclocking greatly, as you can easily dial in any overclocking frequency.
With a TDP of 130 W, the Core i7-4930K consumes a lot of power, so good cooling is definitely needed. Intel's processor supports DDR3 memory with aquad-channel interface. For communication with other components in the system, Core i7-4930K uses a PCI-Express Gen 3 connection. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Core i7-4930K, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Additionally, IOMMU virtualization (PCI passthrough) is supported, so that guest virtual machines may directly use host hardware. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) can run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications.
