Intel will be releasing a 10 core CPU this year, based on the Broadwell architecture but the chip will fully support the X99 chip-set motherboards.

Yes it's probably going to be way out of most people price range but it's nice to keep up-to-date with what's going on.

Well another go at it, it would be nice if they had the better instruction set, I wonder how they will handle the heat without cutting back on clock speed.  I'd stay with the 6 core and not have to worry about it.  I'll have to hope the price stays down.

The chip is 14 nanometer where as the 6 core Haswell is 22 nanometer. The shrink in size should improve power efficiency and decrease heat production. It's because of the shrink that 10 cores has become possible, I see it also has a huge 25MB L3 cache.

I'm looking forward to some reviews and benchmarks.

I wonder if it's 25MB shared, or 2.5MB each. If the former, it's possible for one or more cores to "hog" all of the available cache, starving other cores for memory, but themselves potentially being able to run faster. This would be good for gaming rigs if the running game can only utilize 4 of the 10 cores, but the overall performance could suffer.

If it's 2.5 per core, then users like Freddy (sort of), who do a lot of 3D rendering (but don't use GPU rendering) would see a marked increase in performance across the board.

  Here is a good sit that seems to give all the info

They do have a 6 core at a reasonable price,  I'm not sure about the instruction set though.

Hmm so these will work in my X99-S motherboard ?

Dave, I use CPU and GPU at the same time. GPU is a lot faster, but having the CPU 6 cores helping as well does shave time off.

Yes it will, you might want to up-date your BIOS before you fitted it but yes it's made for all X99 motherboards.

You have some nice posible options just round the corner  Cool

It's nice to know. I do think my upgrade route for what I do would be another GPU before the CPU.

How about the dual Gpu's seems a lot of people use them

Yes it would be dual GPU but probably not SLI. It would be with a card with more memory as Daz uses a lot of VRAM. But I could still use two cards in the rendering.

These monsters have arrived then, with a huge price tag, Totally over the top for us I should think but anyway here's a vid.

   They have been around for a while, I think I came across some monsters when the 5820 came around, Intel had said there would be more hex core processors coming this fall, Newegg has them on sale.

Thanks for the vid, can't see me needing these at the moment, especially with that high price  Shocked

  I think you got a good deal with the 5820,  I'm wondering if the better processing of commands used with the Skylark is used with the Broadwell 6800k.  It cost a little more maybe worth while.

Not sure, my knowledge of CPUs is not very in depth. The 5820 has been working well so far.
