On one of its support pages, Intel spilled the beans about its upcoming Core i7-6950X processor.

This new 14nm based chip will offer 10 cores and 20 threads, it will likely be the flagship in the upcoming Broadwell-E lineup. The chip uses the LGA2011-v3 socket and will be Intel's first 10-core chip for consumers. After a BIOS update, current X99 motherboards should be compatible with Broadwell-E.

The Core i7-6950X has a 3.0GHz base frequency, a 3.5GHz Boost, and 25MB L3 cache memory. The chip will cot $999 and will be accompanied by somewhat cheaper six and eight core processors.
