Crush your enemies, climb the tower of paperwork -- or do both at the same time. Intel's Core i7 processor not only makes it possible, it makes it easy. The Core i7 960 has four cores that run at 1.6GHz and shares 6MB of L3 cache.
Quad cores means true multi-tasking and multi-threading. One core handles the usual action on your operating system, while the second can play a DVD on the TV, the third download a file from internet, and the fourth one sends audio to the kids in another room without lags or stutters.
With Intel Turbo Boost technology and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, the Core i7 enables highly threaded applications or demanding applications to work in maximum speed without any extra effort. The 45nm Intel Core i7 processor is armed with Intel Turbo Boost, which provides extra strength when you need it most.
The Intel Core i7-720QM features four execution cores on a single-silicon die to multitask demanding applications faster, so you can fly through everything you do on your laptop - from playing intense games to creating and editing digital video, music and photos.
Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology)
The Intel Core i7-720QM supports Intel Hyper-Threading technology which allows each execution core to function as two logical processors for a total of eight threads, resulting in more efficient use of processor resources, higher processing throughput, and improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
Turbo Boost technology
Intel Turbo Boost technology maximizes speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload – more performance when you need it the most.
Intel Smart Cache
Intel Smart Cache Technology enables dynamic and efficient allocation of shared cache to all four cores to match the needs of various applications for ultra-efficient data storage and manipulation.
Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller
With the integrated memory controller, the Intel Core i7-720QM enables two channels of DDR3 1333 MHz SO-DIMM memory, resulting in up to 21.3 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Plus the memory controller's lower latency and higher memory bandwidth takes mobile computing beyond the next level.
