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 Performence 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.
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,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 megabit cache. This processor will occupy the respected place of the flagship, with a corresponding price tag of about $ 999.
The next one is core 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 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 resident) - and existing motherboards on this platform will work with them after updating BIOS 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, 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.
