Information about the first engineering samples of the upcoming Intel Broadwell and Skylake CPUs has been released by Chinese site HKEPC. The site has obtained the i7-5775C Broadwell and i7-6700K Skylake processors and has been busy putting them through some testing. The 5775C was paired with an ASRock Z97 OC Formula motherboard using the L1.52 BIOS, indicating that current motherboards can support the upcoming chips. It was overclocked to a frequency of 5GHz at a voltage of 1.419V using air cooling, completing 32 million calculations in WPrime in 4.399 seconds.

Everyone gets excited, buys theirs, then the best they get is 4.5GHz at 1.42V's. :p

Well these were engineering samples. Those usually seem to perform better than the ones sold in store.

Man, I don't think I could let go of any golden chip like that.
