Intel's Broadwell-E 6950X leaks on Intel's Website


Intel's Broadwell-E 6950X, Intel's upcoming 10-core 20-thread Broadwell-E CPU, has leaked on Intel's Website, confirming a lot of the CPUs specifications. 

What has been confirmed about the CPU is that the CPU will have 25M of Cache and boost clock speeds of 3.5GHz, which line up perfectly with previous rumors. Right now several sources suggest that the 10-core 20-thread 6950X model will cost $1500 USD, which is a major price increase for an Intel-E platform flagship. The last generation 8-core 5960K cost only $999.99 at launch.  

The main changes of this CPU from the previous generation Haswell-Extreme series are that its flagship will have two extra CPU cores, a stronger memory controller, and the greater power efficiency that Intel's Broadwell architecture and their 14nm manufacturing process provides.

These CPUs will be available in 6-core, 8-core and 10-core models and will come at a range of clock speeds. Intel's 5960X ran at CPU clocks of 3.0GHz base and 3.5GHz boost, making the rumored specifications for Intel's upcoming 6950X seem all the more legitimate given Intel's recent leak.

Right now Broadwell-E CPUs are rumored to be released in the first half of 2016 and launch at Computex. The flagship 6950X CPU is rumored to come at the same clock speed as the currently available intel i7 5960X, but with the small IPC improvements of Broadwell and the increased core count, it should give users a 20% performance gain in highly threaded CPU loads.

I'm actually thinking of getting a 5960X when the new line come out as I'll hopefully be able to get 1 pre-owned for a good price Quote
