Although there was no info on its base clock, the website listed two notable info about the CPU – 25 MB of l3 cache and 3.5GHz of boost clock speed. The nomenclature also suggests that it will be unlocked out of the box so don’t be surprised if you start seeing clock speeds above 3.5GHz in benchmarks.
It’s being speculated that the i7-6950X will be the first client-platform CPU with 10 cores. Intel could place this product at a new price-point that’s above even the $999 it traditionally reserved for its high-end client chips. At $999, the company could offer an 8-core Core i7-6900K; followed by 6-core Core i7-6850K and i7-6800K at the traditional $600 and $400 price points, respectively. Intel could launch these chips some time within Q2-2016.
