Intel i7 6700 Performance
The Intel® Core™ i7 6700 boasts a 3.4 GHz base frequency and a 4.0 GHz turbo frequency, the processor is also built on a 14 nm process, with a 65 W maximum TDP. The chip is a Quad-Core design with 4 threads. Integrated into the processor is Intel® HD Graphics 530 which delivers mainstream-level graphics with discrete-level performance and has full support for DirectX 12 API. Intel’s 6700's performance is best when used with an Intel 100 series chipset motherboard. Previous generation Intel processors such as the Intel® Core™ i7-4790K processor used DDR3 memory, typically running at 1600 or 2133MHz. The Core i7 6700 have an enhanced memory controller that supports DDR4 memory, giving you a very healthy performance boost over DDR3.

Intel® Core™ i7 is a brand name applies to several families of desktop and laptops, The Core™ i7 brand targets the business and high-end consumer markets for both desktop and laptop computers, and is distinguished from the enty-level Core™ i3 and the more mainstream Core™ i5.

Date Issued: 26th Aug 2015

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.

Intel Core i7 6700, S 1151, Skylake, Quad Core, 3.4GHz, 4.0GHz Turbo, 8MB Cache, 1150MHz GPU, 34x Ratio, 65W, CPU Retail is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good CPU for a mid- to high-end desktop machine I bought this + a new motherboard and memory to upgrade an aging computer used for general admin work. From the description, I wasn't sure that a heatsink and fan were included. It turned out that they were, and the fan is very quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for streaming games. Can finally run cpu intensive games like tf2 with decent fps while streaming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from low wattage vm workstation mixed this with a m2 boot drive and a couple of ssd's on a gigabyte GA-H170M-D3H board with 32gb mem to run 5-8 test systems as virtual machines - couldn't be more pleased - corsair 430 watt power supply more than enough :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic If you are not one for over-clocking, then this is definitely the gamer choice. It's solid and gets every job done with minimum effort.
Date published: 2016-04-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cooler fan is terrible! This is a great CPU but the supplied cooling fan is complete junk. If you gradually increase the speed using your motherboard it goes from "completely off" to "noisy hairdryer" with nothing in between. If you are buying this instead of the 6700K because this one is supplied with the cooler and the 6700K isn't, don't bother because you are going to have to replace the fan anyway unless noise levels don't bother you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from new build only problem was the stock cooler included with the product. When stressed to 100% activity within 10 minutes temperatures hit above 90C. Once replaced with more cooling not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intel Core i7 6700 Excellent value Excellent quality Excellent delivery very fast Does exactly what it says on the tin , very highly recommended
Date published: 2016-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speed and runs cool I needed a new build to replace my ageing i7 920 machine I've had for around 6 years now. As I don't generally overclock my machines I opted for this over the 6700k, The processor is quick, power efficient and runs cool. I usually have high ambient room temps which has seen idle temps of most CPU's at around 50c but this Idles at 25-30c Definitely would recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade

Questions & Answers

Can you now overclock this CPU? As I heard some news that you can now overclock non-K intel CPUS

This will save me a lot of money over the 6700K if you can
Asked by: Yokie
I've heard you can overclock this cpu , but it's something I've always refrained from doing as I've also heard the life span can be less after do so .
