We've heard about Intel's incredible new Core i7-6950X processor, which features 10 x CPU cores joined by 10 x Hyper-Threaded cores for a total of 20 threads, but it looks like we'll get a better look at Intel's new CPUs at Computex in June 2016.


Intel's new 14nm Broadwell-E offerings will arrive next year with a slew of different SKUs, ranging from the 12-threaded CPUs to 20-threaded CPU beasts. The Core i7-6950X will lead the pack with 20 threads of 14nm CPU goodness, with a Base frequency of 2GHz, 25MB of cache and support for DDR4. It'll feature a 140W TDP, and up to 3.5GHz on Turbo Boost.

The Core i7-6900K will feature 16 threads at 3.2GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) and 20MB of cache, with the Core i7-6850K featuring 12 threads of CPU power at 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) with 15MB of cache. The last CPU to be unveiled should be the Core i7-6800K with 12 threads at 3.4GHz (3.6GHz Turbo Boost) with 15MB of cache.

As for pricing, the speculated pricing on the Core i7-6950X is $999, Core i7-6900K for $600, Core i7-6850K for $550, while the Core i7-6800K is set for $450 or so. Expect them to be unveiled at Computex 2016 in June, in Taipei, Taiwan.
