Quad Core i7 7740X CPU. Intel X-Series Processor Family
Powerful performance from intel Kaby Lake X Processor
X-Series processors come in all sizes and speeds, ensuring you can find the CPU best suited to your needs. Intel’s i7-7740X is the first of their i7 family. The 7740X not only doubles the threads of it's X-series Core i5 predecessor, it pushes other technologies such as frequency speeds and Smart Cache further. It maintains the same dual channel DDR4 support (2666) and like all X-Series CPU’s runs on the 2066 socket(LGA).
The Intel Core i5-7640X and Core i7-7740X are quad core processors for the gaming enthusiast. Read more on this below.
X-Series Gaming, Recording and Streaming Performance

Quad Core Intel Processor Power Output
Newcomers to the Intel Quad Core CPU family
The new family of Intel Core X-series processors introduces two quad core processor for broader expandability of the platform. The Intel Core i5-7640X and Intel Core i7-7740X enable customers to invest in a more powerful enthusiast platform that provides more headroom and scalability up the X-series stack when they are ready.
These two processors will start with a slightly higher base frequency and provide all of the ingredients, like higher memory speed and larger socket, for better overclocking performance compared to their mainstream counterparts.
Intel Core X-Series i7-7740X CPU Features
Turbo Boost 2.0
Dynamically increases the processor’s frequency, as needed, by taking advantage of thermal and power headroom when operating below specified limits.
Integrated Memory Controller
Supports up to 2 channels of DDR4 (up to 2666) memory with 1 DIMM per channel. Support for the Intel Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP) specification, revision 2.0 for DDR4.
Advanced Encryption Standard
A fast, secure AES engine for a variety of encryption apps, including whole disk encryption, file storage encryption, conditional access of HD content, internet security, and VOIP. Consumers benefit from protected internet and email content, plus fast, responsive disk encryption.
Fully unlocked core multipliers, power, base clock and DDR4 memory ratios for amazing flexibility with overclocking.
PCI Express 3.0
Offers up to 8GT/S for fast access to peripheral devices and networking between 16 and 40 lanes.
The X-Series CPU are supported by the new Intel X299 Chipset.
Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple “virtual” platforms. Offers improved manageability by limiting downtime and maintaining productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
Shared cached allows faster access to your data by enabling dynamic and efficient allocation of the cache to match the needs of each core significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance.
Manufactured with lead-free and halogen-free component packages.
Provides performance improvements as well as fast app response times for system acceleration and responsiveness.
Hyper Threading Tech
Delivers two processing threads per physical core. Highly threaded applications can get more work done in parallel, completing tasks sooner.
