Intel's next-gen CPUs are right around the corner, with NCIX listing the new Core i7-6950X with a pre-order price of a wallet-busting $2349.99. The Core i7-6900K has a pre-order price of $1495, while the Core i7-6850K is $889, and the Core i7-6800K at $629.
These prices are not official and are inflated for pre-orders, with the normal pricing set to be somewhere around $1609, $1024, $602, and $422 for the Core i7-6950X, Core i7-6900K, Core i7-6850K and Core i7-6800K respectively. Why should we be excited about these new CPUs from Intel? Well, the new Broadwell-E processors will feature four variants, with the flagship being the 10-core/20-thread Core i7-6950X. The one below it will be the 8-core CPU found in the Core i7-6900K, while the other two CPUs will be 6-core variants.
Intel is expected to launch its new Broadwell-E family of processors in the coming months, with a big show at Computex 2016 in June.
