Leaked information published by Asian tech site XFastest reveals Intel's upcoming Broadwell-E may have more cores than previously anticipated. If the site is correct, there will be a Core i7-6950X processor with 10 cores and 20 threads. This LGA2011-v3 chip reportedly has a 3.00GHz frequency and 25MB of L3 cache memory. Previous leaks pointed to a max of 8 cores and 16 threads.
Next in line, the Core i7-6800K will be an 8-core chip with 16 threads and 20MB of L3 cache. It will be clocked at 3.30GHz. The Core i7-6850K and the i7-6800K will be six-core CPUs with 12 virtual threads and 15MB of L3 cache. The former will be clocked at 3.60GHz while the latter will be clocked at a slightly lower 3.40GHz. All four SKUs utilize the LGA2011 v3 socket and support Intel X99 chipset based motherboards.
