Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz is a high-end CPU based on the 14nm, Skylake MicroArchitecture.
It offers 4 Physical Cores (8 Logical), initially clocked at 4.0GHz, which may go up to 4.2GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, HyperThreading, Turbo Boost 2.0 and Virtualization are activated and the processor has its multiplier unlocked.
The processor integrates Powerful Graphics called HD i7 6700K, with 24 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 91W.
Its performance is exceptionally good and enough for even the most demanding applications.
Should i upgrade my current cpu to this or not ?
Update (15/08/2015): This Processor is now correctly ranked!
4% worse. The fk, is intel even trying to convince me to upgrade with their new product?
Current CPU is 94% worse than this one.. can't wait to upgrade :P
This is a damn serious processor!
will this run on 1150
Same performance than mine at stock speeds. Does that mean that this skylake proccesor will perform equally even on multithreaded applications?
Why you haven't added the i7 5775C yet? i want to compare it with this!
And the i5 5675C!!!
Jeez, Skylake looks like it has some serious CPUs to offer! :D
Probably going to have something like Intel HD 6400 @450mhz or something similar. Also, dat tiny, tiny process tech.
