Broadwell-E processors are exposed: finally with 10 physical cores?

More than a year has passed since the current Extreme processors came to the market. Now the following Extreme Processors are finally being revealed, and they have to offer loads… cores

It seems that the extreme category of Intel's desktop processor market has been abandoned for some time, when a lot of water flowed into the mainstream river and brought with it new processors such as the Devil's Canyon, The new Skylake processors, Which not only bring with them a new platform that takes the X99 points and even increases it, but sometimes even offers Completely identical.

Despite such and such talk as the future of Extreme processors, The new details look like Intel's Extras 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.

The new Extreme Processors on the way?

According to the information, Broadwell Extreme Series There will be four models, not three, as we used to see in previous generations. The processors, all in the process of producing 14 nanometers of course and with an open product, start in descending order from the CPU, 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 25 megabit cache. This processor will occupy the respected place of the flagship, with a corresponding price tag of about $ 999.

The next one is i7-6900K, a processor containing "only" 8 physical cores that will be split into 16 logical cores. Cache memory also drops to 20 megabits. The base frequency is 3.30 GHz and its price is unknown. Immediately after him arrive i7-6850K and 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 resident) - and existing motherboards on this platform will work with them after updating naturally. At present, no further details such as the Turbo frequencies and any restrictions are known on the lower models, if any, and of course - the departure date, although previous publications speak of the first quarter of the 2016 year. close enough.

Assuming that the information is correct, this is a good news for anyone waiting for a new Extreme processor, and it is likely that the 6800K processor will become the best-selling Extreme processor because of the relatively accessible price it expects, 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.

  1. I'm already confused.
    Are the processors compatible / compatible with the SKYLAKE system?
    Or do these processors come later?

  2. They will probably fit the boards with Chipset X99 after a bios update, similar to the Rodevel processors with Chipset Z97.
    But wait and see ..

    Intel has two types of home processors - the standard processors and the High End (or Extreme) processors. The current generation of standard processors is based on the Skylake (sixth generation) core and uses the 1151 bracket. The current generation of High End processors is based on the Haswell (fourth generation) core and uses a different bracket - the 2011-3. Of course there is no compatibility between the different residencies.
    The next generation of High End processors, which this article is about, is supposed to be based on the Broadwell (Fifth Generation) core and should fit into the 2011-3 bracket as well.

  4. Thanks Shay.
    ZA that sixth-generation High End processors (1151 resident) are still out of sight…

  5. No, you didn't understand again ... The high end processors have their own resident ... always been that way.
    The next generation of the High End processor that this article is about will be compatible with the existing 2011-3 (for existing motherboards) with bios update.

  6. Thanks Epidem, my mistake ...
    That means the sixth generation has only home processors.
    Broadwell Next Generation Broadwell (Fifth Generation)
    SKYLAKE sixth-generation high-end processors are not on the horizon yet
    And it is not known which resident they will use.

  7. Past experience shows that Intel's Tick-Tock approach each Tock phase (new architecture) drags a new one and each Tick phase (minimization of existing architecture) uses legacy from the previous generation. The same is true for home processors as well as for high end processors:
    Step Tock: Sandy Bridge Architecture (2nd Generation) - New Resident - 1155 for Home Processors and 2011 for High End Processors.
    Tick ​​Phase: Iivy Bridge (Third Generation) Architecture - Using an Existing Resident - 1155 for Home Processors and 2011 for High End Processors.
    Step Tock: Haswell Architecture (Fourth Generation) - New Resident - 1150 for Home Processors and 2011-3 for High End Processors.
    Tick ​​Step: Broadwell Architecture (Fifth Generation) - Using an Existing Resident - 1150 for Home Processors * and 2011-3 for High End Processors.
    Step Tock: Skylake Architecture (Sixth Generation) - New Resident - 1151 for Home Processors (It is unknown which high end processors will use).
    * Although the Broadwell processors are physically compatible with the 1150 bracket, not every motherboard with such a bracket is capable of working with them, since these processors require an Intel 9 chipset (Z97 or H97).

    It should be noted that home processors and high end processors are released on different dates (usually there is a difference of months or even more than a year between them), so the fact that a new architecture was developed does not mean that both home processors and high end processors will be temporarily released.
