Broadwell-E Specifications Leak - 10-Cores and 20-Threads

Broadwell-E to launch at Computex 2016 with 10 cores

 

Specifications for Intel's Broadwell-E CPUs have just been leaked, revealing that Intel is planning to release a 10-core 20-thread i7 CPU this generation. Better still is the fact that this CPU will be usable on currently available X99 motherboards. 

These CPUs are now rumored to be launching at Computex 2016, which is in line with previous rumors that stated that they would release in the first half of next year. 

The main changes of this CPU from previous generation Extreme series CPUs is that it's flagship will have two extra CPU cores, a stronger memory controller and the higher power efficiency that Intel's Broadwell architecture and their 14nm manufacturing process provides.

Right now Broadwell E CPU are rumored to be released in the first half of 2016 and launch at the $1000 price point. The CPU is rumored to come at the same clock speed as the currently available intel i7 5960X, but with the small IPC improvements of Broadwell and the increased core count it should give users a 20% performance gain in highly threaded CPU loads.

nice, can't wait till these are released, will be at home in the new rig planned for next year.Quote

let's hope the prices are good, 4 SKUs this time instead of 3, so Intel might either be making the 6800K a lower price model, though I think they might just bump the 10-core model to a higher price than the 5960X was at launch.Quote

Intel haven't been specific on pricing yet, but they have hinted it would be something like this:
6950X ~$999
6900K ~$620
6850K ~$560
6800K ~$450Quote

Agreed, maybe spread out a bit more for the 6900K, ~$700-$750? The current $560 to $1050 is a huge jump for 2 cores and lower stock speeds.Quote

that doesn't seem right to me, the $60 premium for the 6900K is far too little for two more cores and the $110 premium for the 6850 is too much for a clock speed bump/ speed binning.Quote
