As you guys know, Intel is planning to release the next-gen Haswell-E processors for the enthusiast platform (X99) later this year. Recently, Coolaler posted an article with details and specifications of three of the upcoming Haswell-E processors, namely the Intel Core i7-5960X, Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5820K. Check out the detailed specifications after the break.
Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme Haswell-E
Haswell-E will have one X-type processor or the Extreme processor, and two K-series or the unlock processors. The Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme Haswell-E processor, being the flagship CPU, features a total of 8 cores / 16 threads and has Hyper Threading. It has a base clock of 3.GHz with 20MB cache and will support DDR4 memory. It will also support multiple graphics card configuration with the first two cards running at x16 speed and the third one running at x8 speed. It will also have a maximum PCI Express link speed of 8GT/s and a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 140W.
Intel Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5820K Haswell-E
The Extreme processor is followed by two Core i7 processors with unlock multipliers – the Intel Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5820K Haswell-E. Both processors features 6 cores / 12 threads, also with Hyper Threading, and has a base clock of 3.5GHz and 3.3GHz respectively. The Intel Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5820K will also support DDR4 memory and a memory frequency of 2133MHz. Both processors are somewhat the same, but they differ in the PCI Express configuration. The Core i7-5930K will have 2 x16 + 1 x8 configuration, similar with the Core i7-5960X; meanwhile the Core i7-5820K will only support 1 x16 + 1 x8 + 1 x4 multiple graphics card configuration.
It seems that the Intel Core i7-5930K will be the sweet spot processor here, unless Intel will change the specs before officially releasing it, or announce another “better” Haswell-E processor along the way. Via thepcenthusiast and coaler, see source link.
Note: The specifications provided here is still a rumor and is yet to be confirmed. Until then, the information should be taken with a grain of salt.
