The i7-6800K is most affordable Broadwell-E part, providing more CPU cores for not much more than an i7-6700K, though the 6700K still wins in gaming comparisons.

Man, there is just so much to take in with this launch. I've gone through the testing and even though I have to follow up (hopefully) later on today when our 1700 comes in with its performance. I can say that testing Ryzen as a whole has been a...

Enquanto o Core i7-6950X ainda tinha seus "truques na manga", entregando resultados bastante impressionantes em testes que faziam bom uso da quantidade massiva de threads que ele possui (20), o Core i7-6800K acaba sendo um legítimo exemplo da estagnação...
