Intel i7-4960X Extreme Edition LGA 2011 Processors BX80633I74960X
This CPU is an absolute beast of a processor that offers some of the best speeds on the market. The clock speed on this one isn't too astounding in and of itself, since it comes in at 3.6GHz standard and up to 4.0GHz turbo frequency. However, this is a six-core processor with hyperthreading to make it function like a 12-core CPU. That, combined with the solid clock speed makes this processor incredibly fast and the performance you can get from it is pretty much impossible to beat. Combine that with 15MB of L3 cache memory and you'll see this chip outperform just about any other CPU on the market. It uses the Ivy Bridge-E chipset, which is an improvement on the older Ivy Bridge standard. This definitely isn't a cheap model and you’ll need to provide cooling for it, but it can handle demanding tasks at incredible speeds.
