Intel plans Broadwell-E processors for Q1 2016

With the arrival of desktop Broadwell and soon Skylake processors it is time to upgrade Intel’s highest-end desktop platform. In fact this is exactly what Intel will do in Q1 2016 – then the US chip company will launch the first Broadwell-E processors.

Broadwell-E will arrive in two versions with six and eight cores and will have up to 20 MB of Intel Smart Cache. The chips will have support for Hyper-Threading technology and Turbo Boost 2 and will allow overclocking with the upcoming Broadwell-E Extreme Edition X and K chips. The CPUs will also support quad-channeled DDR4 at 2400 MHz memory with one memory module per channel. In addition to that the processors will have support for 40 PCI-E 3.0 lanes (2 x 16 + 1 x 8 configuration). The chips will have 140W of TDP for both six-core and eight-core processors but Intel warns that the LGA 2011-3 Revision 3 socket will not be compatible with older CPU generations which creates the question where and how Broadwell-E will work.

Of course there’s no information how much the chips will cost right now but as with any high-end Intel processor they will not be cheap.
