It has a Skylake desktop processor present inside; an Intel Core i7-6820K. The CPU has a clock speed that ranges from 2.70-3.60GHz and if you did not notice, the processor has an unlocked multiplier, allowing you to increase the frequency of the chip to get higher frames in upcoming video games.

The laptop is also running a fully functional NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 GPU with 8GB of DDR5 video RAM. Aside from that, there are 2 256GB SSDs running in the RAID 0 SATA format, along with a single 1TB mechanical hard drive.
