Intel Core i7-9700KF Processor
The Core i7-9700KF 3.6 GHz Eight-Core LGA 1151 Processor from Intel is designed for gaming, creating, and productivity. It has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and comes with features such as Intel Optane Memory support, Intel Boot Guard, Intel VT-x and Intel VT-d virtualization technologies, Intel TSX-NI, SSE4.1, 4.2, and AVX2 instruction set extensions, and more. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the maximum turbo frequency this processor can achieve is 4.9 GHz. Additionally, this processor features 8 cores with 8 threads in an LGA 1151 socket, has 12MB of cache memory, and 16 PCIe lanes. Having 8 cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the 8 threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also supports up to 128GB of dual-channel 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM and utilizes 9th-generation technology.
Processor family A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
9th gen Intel® Core™ i7
Processor frequency The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
Processor cores The number of central processing units ('cores') in a processor. Some processors have 1 core, others have 2 (e.g. Intel Core Duo) or more (e.g. the Intel Xeon E7-2850 has 10 cores).
Processor socket Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
LGA 1151 (Socket H4)
Processor lithography The process which is performed by the processor e.g. CPU (Central Processing Unit).

System bus rate A bus is a communication system that transfers data between components inside a computer, or between computers. The system bus rate is the speed at which data is transferred in this communication system.
Processor operating modes Operating modes for the processors that place restrictions on the type and scope of operations for certain processes run by the CPU. This design allows the operating system to run with more privileges than application software.
Processor cache type
Processor boost frequency The turbo boost is an automatic, managed accelleration of the processor when one of the cores is overloaded.

On-board graphics adapter Graphics hardware which is built into the motherboard or CPU, as opposed to a separate graphics adapter (video card). On-board graphics uses CPU and RAM for graphics processing.
Discrete graphics adapter
On-board graphics adapter model "Graphic adapter" is the hardware that produces images on a display. "On-board" means that the graphics adapter is intergrated inside the motherboard.
Discrete graphics adapter model A graphics adapter (often known as a video card) generates images for a display. A discrete graphics adapter plugs into the motherboard, and usually produces much better graphics than an integrated graphics adapter. There are various models of discrete graphics adapters.
