Broadwell-E, like its Extreme series chips before it, forgoes an IGP in favor of a larger CPU die. The CPUs ship in 8- and 6-core variants with Hyper-Threading, run upwards of 20MB Cache, support DDR4 exclusively, and host 40 PCI-e 3.0 lanes (not including chipset support). TDP is expected at 140W.
The CPUs will socket in the LGA 2011-v3 socket type.
Initial specs can be found below, as sourced from BenchLife.info. There is still a possibility that these specifications may be incorrect or in flux, but we feel fairly confident that the below listing is mostly accurate:
Intel i7-6950X, 6900K, 6850K, & 6800K Specs
|Cores/Threads||Frequency / Turbo||Total Cache||Memory Speed||TDP|
|i7-6950X||10/20||3.0GHz / 3.5GHz||25MB||2400MHz||140W|
|i7-6900K||8/16||3.2GHz / 3.7GHz||20MB||2400MHz||140W|
|i7-6850K||6/12||3.6GHz / 3.8GHz||15MB||2400MHz||140W|
|i7-6800K||6/12||3.4GHz / 3.6GHz||15MB||2400MHz||140W|
More news is expected through 1Q16.
