chances are either 6400 or 6500 will be available at one time. 6400 may get phased out much earlier than the rest of them.
the base clockrates are low enough for intel to "refresh" the lineup with 100MHz bump across the board. :whistle:

I quote "Talking about OC, the Core i7-6700K has the ability to push clock speeds of up to 5.2 GHz on air cooling which will attract several enthusiasts to flock back to overclocking. "

I smell suspect. How can a non soldered ihs give you clocks at 5.2 ghz on AIR. If this is true i should be getting 5.0 ghz on my hyper 212 evo.

possibly signaling the release of skylake? Also if we're going by traditional intel naming it started with nehalem the next two were bridge the one after that well and now we're at lake. Does that mean the next ones ocean? What comes after ocean? ice comet? Water planet?
 


"Up to", which again really means "one chip managed to stay stable long enough to pass CPUID verification".

yes i am not disappointed at all ,since the overclocking seems great on these chips,yes the ipc gains are pathetic, but oc was more of an interest here still remains to be seen if retail samples will clock as good, but judging from toms review here and overclock3d.net the amazing bclk clocking is back, honestly seems even better than on p55, could mean every skylake chip will get quite the oc headroom...
 
From [H]:

Luck of the Draw?

Pre-Devil's Canyon processors varied wildly when it came to overclocking. If you could get a 4770K or 4660K that would do 4.5 or 4.6GHz under stress testing, you were doing very well. That does not seem to be the case with Skylake.

In the "Guys Talk, You Hear Things" category, it seems that "everyone" is having luck with their Skylake processors and getting those to 4.7GHz overclocks with 3000MHz memory speeds. It seems that the only thing enthusiasts are going to be bound by is what speed RAM they can afford. There are not a lot of 3600+ DDR4 kits floating around right now, so we were lucky that we could show you that speed. This is certainly good news.

Has Intel simply nailed the process on this 14nm Skylake, or have they simply binned the hell out of these CPUs? Remember we did mention on page 1 that this is the first time in almost 20 years that Intel has sent us a retail processor instead of an engineering sample marked "confidential." This seems very odd to me, and the quote from Intel does not make sense to me either as to its reasoning or to why. Anyway, we can cook up conspiracy theories all day long, but as it sits right now, it looks like "all" the Skylake 6700K processor will give you a solid 4.7GHz overclock. I have no reasons to think right now that retail boxed processors will be any different.

Some real oddities going on there.

Overall the differences are greater for office work rather than gaming.

 


Time to slap the good old "Excel Ready!" sticker to the box for the K models!

All in all, yeah, still not a worthy upgrade. Even with the OC promise, it's still not enough to justify like USD$500 in parts for just a... Regression on performance? Well... Where have I seen that I wonder? :eek:

Cheers!
 

the e3..v5 xeons should be quite good this generation. add the cheaper-than-i7 prices and thos will be good deals. and for those who can get to a microcenter...... :whistle: ;-D

the memory upgrade alone should make 'em worth buying. dd4 2133 and it's advantages over ddr3 1600. seemingly better thermals should help with longer sustained turbo and other good stuff.
 


Which makes sense. Games are GPU bound. Office apps are CPU bound. Therefore, Office apps, while lighter on CPU usage, increase performance more readily due to CPU increases.

So does Skylake officially suck and I should go with a 4790K for my new comp build? Was waiting on Skylake and everyone seems to be disappointed.
 


Wow, that is very harsh. From what I see in the benchies, he's not far from being right, though.

It is very strange that no details, for a supposedly "tock", are given like in previous launches. The simple reason could be, like Charlie says, Intel is selling Broadwells with another name and just skipped the "tock" part and told no one outside of the board of Directors. Or even nuttered the actual design in some way we don't know, from Haswell and are too ashamed to say it until early adopters have given their money? XD

All in all, I don't know what to say other than "son, I am disappoint" :p

Cheers!

Most of the improvements are still power related, as has been the usual lately.
AT had a few more details on the GPU, like VP9 in hardware.

At my company we have near daily video conferences and older computers can do that of course but the CPU usage can be much much higher, and the more simultaneous video streams the more stuttering you get. Demonstrating a CPU intensive application while streaming can make things crawl. Twitch/Youtube streamers are likely to see a difference, but that probably doesn't show up in any benchmarks yet.

It's a catch 22 for Intel. As they add more accelerators to offload the CPU the average consumer can get away with a cheaper processor.
