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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first Intel I've been an AMD user until now, purely down to price but I had the chance to build an Intel set up so thought I would see what the fuss was about. I have come from an AMD FX8350 8 core CPU to this Intel i7 6700k and while I'm aware not all software etc can make use of all cores I was still concerned that I might be losing out by going to a 4 core CPU. I'm not a PC gamer or over-clocker so my experience is based on what I class as normal usage. I use all the big programs and I have them running at the same time...this Intel feels like it knocks spots of the AMD performance wise; I'm sure there's plenty of Intel fans that will tell me that goes without saying. I'm not going to put the AMD down, it's been brilliant but I'm happy I made the move to Intel and it's unlikely I will be going back any time soon. Yes, the Intel cost twice the price of my AMD but what I see I'm getting for my money is a cooler, less power hungry better performing CPU, not to mention the limitations of AMD motherboards currently that I'm now not seeing with an Intel board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grab it on sale. This is a great CPU it runs cool and powers through CPU intensive games. Would definitely recommend this or the non K version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Processor I bought this products to go with my new parts, it was easy to assemble and easy to fit to the board. I bought a few items to completely upgrade my PC - they were well packed, delivery was quick and i found the pricing was competitive - i was super impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Processor! Twitch Streaming is no problem. I recently upgraded my PC from an AMD FX-4100 to the i7-6700k and Maximus VIII Hero Motherboard (got them both in a bundle). The Processor is incredible, I'm yet to reach 100% CPU usage for more than a few minutes, depending on what I'm doing. I stream on Twitch fairly frequently, and previously needed to encode off the GTX 980 I have, since the FX-4100 wasn't good enough. Now, I can encode off the CPU, while playing any game maxed out, and never go above 40% usage for more than a few minutes. I also do game development and 3D Rendering. This processor is incredible for that, too. Especially with DDR4 RAM support. Temperatures are also incredible. I idle at 28C on a Hyper 212 Evo, and under load is barely over 60C. In short, a must-buy, IF you're looking for DDR4 RAM support, and a few other improvements. If so, the extra few pounds is worth it over the 4790k with DDR3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome value So fast for the money! cannot believe how much faster this thing is than my old CPUs (two quad core Zeon).
