Introducing Intel Thread Director

The Intel 14th Gen CPUs include a great feature called Intel Thread Director, which significantly boosts multitasking performance.

Intel Thread Director is a workload management controller on the CPU that works directly with the operating system to ensure that top-priority tasks are executed first and with the highest performance. Intel worked together with Microsoft to implement the new technology, and only Windows 11 is able to take advantage of Intel Thread Director. For this reason, we recommend Windows 11 if you choose any 14th Gen CPU upgrade.

All Intel 14th Gen CPU options employ an innovative hybrid architecture combining high-performance and high-efficiency CPU cores on the same chip. Intel Thread Director segregates background operations on high-efficiency E-cores, while promoting foreground priority tasks to the high-performance cores (P-cores). The least important tasks are assigned to virtual cores, which use free cycles on P-cores through a method known as Hyper-threading or simultaneous multithreading.

The result is a processor optimized for multitasking and responsive computing, in which your high-priority work gets the CPU's top focus. Now your top-priority work is far less likely to suffer from intermittent slowdowns and stalls caused by background tasks grabbing the focus of the CPU cores being used your top-priority tasks. Priority is determined by Windows 11, which monitors which applications are visible to the user, with particular priority given to the application that has the user's current focus, as well as processes that are assigned high process priority in Windows.

Intel Thread Director requires Windows 11, which is uniquely optimized to work with this on-chip Intel microcontroller to manage competing workloads. While Windows 10 runs fine on Stratosphere Mini ZU3, we encourage you to choose Windows 11 for the best multitasking performance with any 14th Gen CPU option.

Crucial DDR4 memory

Fast DDR5 memory

  • Base memory: 32GB DDR5-4800
  • Memory capacity: 96GB (2 DIMM slots)
  • Typical configuration: 64GB
Samsung 980 PRO NVMe SSD

Ultra-fast SSD storage

  • Capacities: 500GB - 4TB
  • PCI Express Gen 4, M.2 NVMe
  • Up to 7000 MB/s read
  • Up to 4700 MB/s write
  • Up to 1 million IOPS (I/O Operations Per Second)
  • Dual SSD option

PCI Express SSDs connect directly to the CPU or chipset via an M.2 NVMe socket on the motherboard with four dedicated PCIe lanes. PCIe Gen 4 SSDs double the maximum bandwidth of these lanes, compared to PCIe Gen 3 SSDs. The result is up to 12.7X the performance of older SATA SSDs for sequential reads and writes, and up to 8X the I/O operations per second.

In 2009, Digital Tigers was first in the industry to ship SSD drives standard in desktop workstations. We've shipped thousands of systems since with Intel and Samsung SSDs, and only one has ever failed in customer hands.
