Do you have Creator customers who just can’t get enough performance from their PCs?

Then tell them about the Intel Core X-series desktop processors. These high-end CPUs combine 2 powerful features: a high core count and multi-threaded performance.

Processor Performance

The Intel Core X-series processor line’s core count now offers multiple options of up to 18 cores. And the company’s Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 makes those cores efficient by enabling users to prioritize workloads to the 2 best-performing cores, then leveraging other jobs to the cores that remain.

Intel Core X-series processors

These processors also deliver extreme mega-tasking capability by enabling support for simultaneous, compute-intensive, multi-threaded workloads. For example, a Creator could load a video into Adobe’s Premier Pro CC video-editing software while simultaneously playing a hi-res game or watching a live-streamed video. And still see high performance.

Meet the Core-X family

The newest member of the Intel Core X-series processor family is also the most extreme. Called the Intel Core i9 processor, it was introduced about one year ago and is now available in 5 versions.

These include the top-of-the-line Intel Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition processor. It features 18 cores, 36 threads, and a base clock speed of 2.6 GHz (overclocking capable to achieve even faster speeds). And it supports Intel Optane memory for faster performance and greater responsiveness.

To be sure, there’s a cost for all this extra performance. The Intel Core i9-7980XE Extreme Edition processor retails for about $1,700.

If that’s more than your customers need or can afford, Intel also offers Core i5 and i7 versions of its Intel Core X-series processors. The i5-7640X, for example, retails for just $227. It’s no slouch, however. You get a CPU with 4 cores, 4 threads, and a base clock speed of 4.0 GHz, plus the benefits of the Intel X299 platform.

The Intel X299 platform is a solution that pairs Intel Core X-series processors with the company’s X299 Chipset. This platform includes integrated USB 3.0, support for both PCIe 3.0 storage and Intel Optane memory, and support for several of Intel’s performance-tuning utilities.

Get marketing

Sound attractive? You can create your own Intel Core X-series campaign with marketing resources from Intel’s Partner Marketing Studio.

These assets include Intel Core X-series animated and static banners, flyers, mastheads and landing pages, online marketing kits, posters, product logos and photos, videos and downloadable social content (animations and banners).

So if your customers are Creators looking for greater performance, tell them about the benefits of Intel Core X-series processors.
