Intel Broadwell-E Core i7-6950X first 10-core desktop processor
According to latest news Intel launching Intel Broadwell-E Core i7-6950X first 10-core desktop processor in the market for consumer usage. Processor will be compatible with X99 chipset motherboards
The Broadwell-E lineup which is Intel’s cutting edge HEDT (High-End desktop) family will be based on the X99 stage and will support new SKUs to the customer market that will be good with the current generation of motherboards.
To fulfill the need of PC lovers, Intel has part their lineups into two classes, the mainstream family, and the enthusiast family. The mainstream family comprises of parts that are centered around general buyers with gaming, business, and home employments.
Presently in new Intel processors company has giving some good overclocking features with K series processors that are featured in the mainstream lineup and some board partner offers some cool motherboard options to users on the platform but those who need the best performance from Intel look at the HEDT lineup which includes the high-end desktop parts ranging from top of the line chips, motherboards, and I/O options.
With additional cores, user has the advantage to handle overwhelming workloads. The chip will come in very handy for future proofing yourself in order to experience the best. with next-generation gaming titles have to offer In any case, customers will at present need to upgrade their graphics adapter else they will keep running into genuine execution bottlenecking issues.
The most recent news on the Broadwell-E family comes straight from XFastest who have confirmed that Intel’s Core i7-6950X processor which is the leader processor of the Broadwell-E lineup will include 10 cores and 20 threads.
The processor will keep running at a base clock of 3.00 GHz took after by a turbo support clock which is yet to be resolved yet I think Intel has made a point, that they are not ceasing at 8 cores for their HEDT family yet expanding the core number considerably facilitate for consumers.
The last time Intel launched a $1500 USD CPU was a Core 2 Quad QX9775, however, we are expecting that thanks to its excessive price label and small performance margins, the processor was not ready to gather a ton of accomplishment.
In addition Core i7-6950X, there are two more processors that will be added to the Broadwell-E lineup, but they won’t come in market with the same number of cores as the extreme version processor.
- Intel Core i7-6900K (8 core processor with 16 threads)
- Intel Core i7-6850K (6 core processor with 12 threads)
Intel going to provide 10 cores and 20 threads in Core i7-6950X processor with 25 MB of L3 cache (2.5 MB per core) and each core of this processor will have a base clock speed of 3.00GHz within 3.50GHz boost clock.
Core i7-6950X processor will be compatible with current generation X99 motherboards that feature the LGA 2011-v3 socket. This will be wrong if we say that board partner of Intel will not launch new motherboard for Core i7-6950X processor mark the arrival of the first 10 core processor from any company.although Intel and AMD both has released higher core count processors in the server and workstation market, but no high-performance CPU has yet launched in the desktop PC market like Core i7-6950X.
