Intel Broadwell-E i7-6950X, 6900K, 6850K, & 6800K Specs Leaked

The follow-up to Haswell-E introduces four Core i7 SKUs on the Broadwell-E architecture, according to an alleged leak posted by Asian site Intel is already known as targeting 2Q16 for its Broadwell-E launch, but reportedly intends to break its history of a three-SKU lineup by shipping an i7-6950X at the high-end, followed by an i7-6900K, i7-6850K, and i7-6800K; all four SKUs are unlocked.

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 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:

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
