Intel Broadwell-E 6850K has been Pictured and benchmarked, revealing that the new CPU will have a new IHS design and a thinner PCB. 

We can also see below that while the i7 6850K has the same pin layout as the older X99 5820K it has some very different circuitry on the bottom, hinting that the CPU has some very different power circuitry.

When looking at both CPUs the leaker also found that the new 6850K has a thinner PCB than Haswell-E CPUs, which could perhaps mean that Intel X99 CPUs may suffer from the same bending issue that Intel Skylake CPUs had when used with certain CPU coolers.

The leaker has benchmarked this CPU and compared it to his own Intel i7 5820K CPU, though it is worth noting that the i7 6850K is actually replacing the i7 i5 5930K, which is a 6-core CPU like the 5820K that runs at higher clock speeds. 

The i7 6850K runs at a base clock speed of 3.6GHz and a boost clock speed of 3.8 whereas the 5820K run at a base clock speed of 3.3Ghz and a boost clock speed of 3.6GHz. Below are results from some basic benchmarks in SuperPi and CineBench.

We can see in these screenshots that the i7 6850K was able to achieve a score of 1311 points in Cinebench, which is a decent boost in score from 1191 that the i7 5820K scored. 

In SuperPi test we see the 6850K complete the test in 8 minutes 27.874 seconds, with the 5820K pulling behind by just over 11 seconds. 

We can see here that Broadwell-E does perform well, though the IPC gains in these CPUs are not groundbreaking, as a lot of the gain here can be explained by the boost in clock speed the 6850K has. On the high-end we will Broadwell-E deliver a maximum of 10 cores, which will no doubt give Broadwell-E's flagship a significant advantage over Haswell-E's i7 5960X in terms of raw computational power.

As people start to sell their 5960X's to make room for the 6950X, I shall sell my 5930K and pick one up Quote
