As we get closer to the middle of the year many details about Intel’s upcoming Skylake microarchitecture are becoming clear. Today we have details on the upcoming Core i5-6600K and Core i7-6700K processors.
Let’s start with the Core i5-6600K which will have four cores, but no HyperThreading support. It will also have 6MB cache, a 3.5 GHz clock speed, boost up to 3.9 GHz, 1600 / 2133 MHz DDR3 / DDR4 support, Intel HD Graphics 5000, and will have a TDP of 95 W.
Moving on to the Core i7-6700K which will also have four cores, but will have HyperThreading support. It has 8MB of cache, a 4.0 GHz clock speed, boost up to 4.2 GHz, 1600 / 2133 MHz DDR3 / DDR4 support, Intel HD Graphics 5000, and the same TDP of 95W.
Now keep in mind these are rumored specifications, nothing here has been confirmed. Since these chips have a TDP of 95W expect quite a lot of headroom for overclocking.
