Intel "Skylake" Core i7-6700K CPU (Z170 Chipset and GT530) Review

Out of the Box Performance: CINEBENCH, PCMark 8, wPrime






PCMark 8 Home Test





PCMark 8: Microsoft Office Test




PCMark 8: Photoshop Test








CINEBENCH and wPrime are usually good indicators of overall CPU performance, and in this case they are showing that the 6700K has a clear lead ahead of the other quad cores.


The OpenGL scores are dependent on the integrated graphics, and it seems that Skylake comes with a very nice integrated GPU. Many of the PCMark8 benchmarks are heavily dependent on the CPU's frequency rather than IPC or cores, and the 6700K turbos all cores to 4.2GHz at stock.
