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 4.7 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great CPU from Intel Seems i got a good one ;) Great chip at stock clocks, runs cool and fast. Even better chip when delidded and overclocked(at your own risk :P ) I have mine running at 4.7ghz when needed on an Asus Maximus Formula VIII, and it barely goes over 40 degrees using an H110i and two noctua fans on the rad at 1600 rpm. 12 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Upgraded to this from an ancient CPU, does exactly what I need it to do. Runs games with no issues at all. 29 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It does what it claims It's an Intel CPU.It works as spec'd.It's fast.It has Intel build quality. There really is nothing more to say. 29 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great processor i thought all retail cpu come with a stock fan, but this didnt. not sad about it but it is good to have one, you never know when youll need it! otherwise this is a great core , just yet got to see how the electricity bill looks after running this hardcore. previous cpu was : 4690k @ 4.7ghz 27 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by High end If you are looking for a high-end cpu these days, that is than, there is not much to write about, this is the best cpu 24 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent not-so-little processor. I have yet to overclock this processor, and so cannot attest to it's abilities in this area, however even at stock clock this is an excellent piece of kit. I am able to run very CPU intensive titles like Flight Simulator X (an infamous resource hogger) at respectable frame rates, and I have noticed that well-threaded workloads are much quicker thanks to hyper threading. I have come from an aging i5-3330 and the improvement has been significant. It is not night-and-day, because processors nowadays are rarely the source of bottlenecks, however I have noticed improvements none-the-less. If your workload is not particularly well-threaded then the i5-6600K may be a better option, as the performance on a single thread/core is identical if not better on the i5. This processor excels in video/audio editing, computer graphics and of course multitasking. If these are what you do then don't hesitate to get this chip. The Haswell-E range, however, has some compelling 6- and 8-core options which may suit certain folk's workloads a lot better, the i7-5820K is not drastically more expensive considering it comes with a whole two extra cores, and 4 extra threads. But be warned - the single core performance of these chips is not as good, as they need to be throttled to prevent melting the thing! In most gaming applications you are better going for this, or as aforementioned, the i5. In conclusion, this chip is brilliant if your workflow needs more threads and you don't feel the need for more cores. If you are just gaming and doing productivity tasks the i5 is much the better option, however for anything more involved like content creation or heavy-duty multitasking (think running a AAA game, Twitch, an internet browser with a few tabs open [one of which is playing some internet radio] and an anti-virus program concurrently). If you want to overclock then you'll need a good cooling solution, and the chip DOES NOT COME WITH A FAN! Given that most sane people will be replacing the fan anyway this isn't a biggie, but you have been warned... 23 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Future proof I upgraded to this processor from a Intel i7 930. The performance improvement is noticeable however my main impetus for purchase was get a processor that I would not need to change for the next 5 years. 01 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Still too slow Come on Intel, we need you to stick to Moore's law, and make some 10 GHz CPUs! The unfortunate problem is that, while Intel folllows the multi-core route, almost all actual applications remain stubbornly single-threaded, and it is only the single-thread performance that really counts. Alternatively, how about implementing the whole of glibc in hardware.... 25 December 2015
