More than a year has passed since the current Extreme Processors came on the market. Now the following extreme processors are finally exposed, and they have a lot to offer… cores
It seems that the extreme category of the Intel desktop processor market has been neglected for a while, when a lot of water flowed in the mainstream and brought with it new processors such as the Devil's Canyon of sorts, and of course The new Skylake processors, Which not only brings with them a new platform that takes the X99's gems and even surpasses it, but also sometimes offers exactly the same performance.
Despite such and such talk such as the future of Extreme processors, The new details give the impression that Intel's extreme processors are here - and they're here to stay. In the hands of those who have the need and especially the budget for them. According to new information, Which should be emphasized for the time being is not based (but spreading across the network), anyone who can afford an Extreme processor will have processing power that is not in the mainstream market and will differentiate the markets from one another, just like in the old days.
According to the information, Broadwell Extreme Series Appoint four models, not three as we used to see in previous generations. The processors, all in the production process of 14 nanometers of course and with an open product, start in descending order from the processor.Core i7-6950X, a processor that contains no less than 10 physical cores that divide themselves into 20 logical cores using Hyper-Threading technology. The processor will operate at a GHz 3.0 base frequency and has a זיכרון 25 megabytes cache. This processor will take the respectable place of the flagship, with a matching price tag of about $ 999.
The next one is Core i7-6900K, a processor containing 8 "only" physical cores that will be divided into 16 logical cores. The cache also drops to 20 megabits. The base frequency is 3.30 GHz and its price is unknown. Immediately after him arrive Core i7-6850K andCore i7-6800K which share the exact same specification of 6 physical cores (and logical 12) and a memory of 15 megabit, except for the base frequency is different, as 3.60 GHz and 3.40 GHz respectively. Their price is also unknown.
The new Extreme Processors will come compatible with the existing X99 platform (and 2011-v3 bracket) - and existing motherboards on this platform will work with them after an update BIOS naturally. At present, no further details are known such as the Turbo frequencies and any restrictions on the lower models, if any, and of course - the release date, although previous publications talk about the first quarter of 2016. Close enough.
Assuming the information is correct, this is good news for those who are waiting for a new extreme processor, and it is likely that the 6800K processor will become the best-selling extreme processor due to the relatively affordable price that is expected of it, the ability to sustain Overclock Without any inhibitor of a locked product and using the redundancy of an X99 pallet, similar to previous processors such as the old i7-5820K and the old i7-920.
