Rumor: Broadwell-E Processor Core i7-6950X get ten cores




Intel is in March 2016 with four new Broadwell-E processors whose most powerful model will feature ten cores. It claims a Taiwanese technology site. The Core i7 6950X would work at 3GHz.

The Taiwanese site Xfastest, often Intel publishes information early and correctly, showing specifications of the four Broadwell-E processors to appear next March. It is the Core i7 6950X with ten cores and 25MB L3 cache, the Core i7 6900K with eight cores and 20MB cache and the Core i7 6850K and Core i7 6800K, both with six cores and 15MB L3 cache.

According to the rumor, the processors work in conjunction with Intel’s existing LGA2011-socket v3, something that previous rumors already emerged. When it was all message which Broadwell E would be combined with the X99 platform Haswell-E, but also that there would be processors with six and eight cores. Whether the new rumor is true about a ‘decacore’, should therefore be seen.

Broadwell-E is the next high-endplatform Intel, among others overclockers. The processors are relative to Haswell-E produced at 14nm instead of 22nm and get support for ddr4-2400 memory.
