Intel plans four Broadwell-E processors

Intel plans four Broadwell-E processors

In the past two years Intel has had just three enthusiast class processors in the Ivy Bridge-E and Haswell-E families but this will soon change with the introduction of the first 14 nm Broadwell-E processors – this family will have at least four SKUs. According to leaked documents Intel will soon unleash the following models – Core i7-6800K, Core i7-6850K, Core i7-6900K and Core i7-6950X.

The first two chips in the line – the Core i7-6800K and Core i7-6850K will have six cores with Hyper-Threading technology for a total of 12 threads in execution at once and 15 MB of shared L3 cache. The i7-6800K will run at 3.40 GHz (3.60 GHz Turbo), while the i7-6850K will be a bit faster at 3.60 GHz (3.80 GHz Turbo). Unfortunately the number of the supported PCI-E lanes is unknown so we do not know whether these two chips will have a limited PCI-E root complex like the current Core i7-5820K Haswell-E processor.

The other two processors will have even more cores – the i7-6900K will be a chip with eight processing cores plus Hyper-Threading for a total of 16 logical CPUs and 20 MB of L3 cache. This processor will run at 3.20 GHz with a really nice Turbo Boost clock speed of 3.70 GHz. The last chip in the line – the Core i7-6950X – will be Intel’s first 10-core consumer processor. The chip will support Hyper-Threading for a total of 20 logical CPUs and will have 20 MB of L3 cache. As to clock speeds this one will run at 3.00 GHz, while the Turbo Boost clock speed will reach 3.50 GHz.

All four processors will support all current LGA 2011-3 motherboards with only a BIOS update needed. They will have 140W TDP and unlocked multipliers so users will be able to overclock them but serious cooling will likely be needed.

The new Broadwell-E family will arrive in Q2 2016.
