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...

While the Core i7 6800K has been available for a few months now, there hadn't been any review on it since Intel hadn't sent out any Broadwell-E samples for Linux testing this time around. However, I did end up finally buying a Core i7 6800K now that the...

What would you do with more CPU cores? This is a question I see posted from an Intel employee on a yearly basis, and it actually is a difficult question to answer depending on your computing background. A gamer might not need more than four or six, and...

We always knew we'd be seeing Broadwell again, though. There's a fairly predictable lag between when Intel rolls out a new architecture and when the design is adapted for server/workstation use. So, when we got our hands on Xeon E5-2600 v4 , based on...

While being a powerful CPU, the Intel i7-6800K does not reach its full potential as a processor of 6 cores. Nonetheless, it remains a strong opponent not only to its Skylake predecessor but also to competing brands. It is a good choice should one prefer...

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...

В лице Core i7-6800K компания Intel предлагает сравнительно доступный, но при этом мощный процессор «для энтузиастов». Шестиядерный CPU по результатам тестирования во многих бенчмарках превосходит значительно более дорогие модели при примерно такой же...

Intel bietet mit dem Core i7-6800K einen vergleichsweise günstigen und trotzdem starken Enthusiasten-Prozessor an. Die Hexacore-CPU schlägt im Test deutlich teurere Modelle in vielen Benchmarks bei gleichbleibender...
