Intel® Core™ i7 Processor Series and Extreme Edition Series Datasheet, Vol. 1
The Intel® Core™ i7-900 desktop processor Extreme Edition series and Intel® Core™ i7-900 desktop processor series are intended for high performance high-end desktop, uni-processor (UP) server, and workstation systems. Several architectural and microarchitectural enhancements have been added to this processor ...including four processor cores in the processor package and increased shared cache.
The Intel® Core™ i7-900 desktop processor Extreme Edition series and Intel® Core™ i7-900 desktop processor series are the first desktop multi-core processor to implement key new technologies: • Integrated memory controller • Point-to-point link interface based on Intel QPI Figure 1-1 shows the interfaces used with these new technologies
The processor is optimized for performance with the power efficiencies of a low-power microarchitecture.
This document provides DC electrical specifications, differential signaling specifications, pinout and signal definitions, package mechanical specifications and thermal requirements, and additional features pertinent to the implementation and operation of the processor.
