What about the immersive experiences of virtual reality? The Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition delivers a fantastic experience with Oculus Rift* and HTC Vive*, with more than enough room to spare. So whether gaming or creating in VR environments, gamers and enthusiasts can count on the most vivid, immersive or realistic experiences possible now – and be ready for what’s to come.

But gamers aren’t the only ones who need amazing performance. It’s never been easier to capture ultra hi-def video from phones and cameras, but creating and editing a film or video from all that raw 4K footage is a complex, processing-intensive endeavor. With the Intel Core i7 processor Extreme Edition, professional and novice filmmakers alike can edit in native 4K, create stunning visual effects and compose music on a system that’s up to the task. With up to 10 cores and 20 threads of performance, it’s possible to work on virtually every aspect of a project simultaneously. Here, mega-tasking means staying in the groove without the system becoming a roadblock.

The Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition will retail for around $1,700, you can find out more about it at the source link below.
