Intel generally follows a tick-tock philosophy for new processor launches. The tick represents a shrinking of the manufacturing process - 32nm to 22nm, for example - while the tock is indicative of a new architecture based on the leading process of that time. This has been the case since 2007.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Was lucky and received a fantastic one :) Spec wise I was extremely happy when I decided to order the i5 6600 and found it to be excellent. Ignore the above review - to rate a product one star because of receiving a faulty unit is a frankly bizarre decision. It sits at the heart of my gaming machine, slotted neatly into its holster on an Asus ROG MAXIMUS VIII IMPACT. I couldn't be bothered with overclocking this time around so eschewed the K version and didn't regret my decision. Not had a single problem with it when gaming or just generally wasting time in the evenings doing computing things because it's in front of me. If you're not into overclocking but want a processor that can handle gaming then this is a your CPU. 31 March 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Was unlucky and received a faulty one :( Spec wise I was extremely happy when I decided to order the i5 6600 but found it to be faulty. After testing all the other components and finding no fault I ended up ordering the 6600K due to the standard 6600 being out of stock. I'm now up and running :) 13 November 2015
