Intel to Release 10 Core Consumer Processor at Computex 2016

It does not seem all that long ago that the first dual core x86 CPUs were released, but now we are approaching the release of the first 10 core CPU for consumers; Intel's Core i7-6950X. It is a Broadwell-E chip, so it is being manufactured on a 14 nm process, and will have a base clock of 3.00 GHz, with a 3.50 GHz. It will also come unlocked, so overclockers are free to push that higher, and so long as you have an X99 motherboard with an LGA 2011-v3 socket, you should be good to make the upgrade.

If you are looking for something with a lower price tag, Intel is also set to release the i7-6900K, i7-6850K, and i7-6800K. The 6900K has eight cores and 16 threads, with a base clock of 3.20 GHz and 3.70 GHz boost, and is expected to cost $999. The two 68xxK processors are both hexacores and the 6850K has a base clock of 3.60 GHz, with a 3.80 GHz boost, while the 6800K starts at 3.40 GHz and goes up to 3.60 GHz. Coming in at $550 and $390 respectively though, these may be a good solution for some.

With these new CPUs coming, it is not surprising that some AIB manufacturers are going to release new or refreshed motherboards to provide the latest features. Apparently Gigabyte showed off a refreshed X99 motherboard at CES 2016, which Computerbase spotted, which is WCCFtech's source. I do not read German though, which is why WCCFtech is the first source below.
