5 out of 5 eggs The *Tock* of the Cycle is significant - Great CPU 09/17/2015

This review is from: Intel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Pros: Well others cover the general -- So I'll cover the absolute Technical Specs of this Chip!

Launch: Q3, 2015 - i5-6600K (Unlocked) - 64 Bit
Intel Smart Cache: 6MB
DMI3 = 8 GT/s (8 Billion Data Transfer Operations per Second!)
Extensions: SSE 4.1, 4.2, AVX 2.0
Size (Lithography) = 14 nanometers
Thermal Specification PCG 2015D (130W)

Core Number = 4
Thread Number = 4
Base Frequency = 3.5Ghz
Default Turbo (non OC) Frequency = 3.9Ghz
Thermal Design Power = 91Watts
Cache: 6 MegaBytes

Max RAM = 64GB
RAM Compatiblity = DDR4/DDR3L
Memory Channels = 2
Memory Bandwidth = 34.1 GB/s

Graphics! (Impressive)
Intel HD Graphics 530
Base Frequency = 350Mhz
Max Frequency = 1.15Ghz
Video Memory = 1.7GB
Graphics Output Support = eDP, DP, HDMI, DVI

4K Support!

Max Resolution = 4096x2304

*Native* DirectX 12
Open GL 4.4
Intel Quick Synch Video = Yes
Intel InTru 3D Technology = Yes
Intel Insider = Yes
Intel Wireless Display = Yes
Intel Clear Video HD = Yes

Displays Supported Simultaneously (Just CPU) = 3

PCI Express = 3.0
PCI Express Configs = 1x16, 2x8, 1x8+2x4
Max PCI Express Lanes = 16

Socket Supported: LGA1151

Intel Turbo Boost = 2.0
Intel Virtualization = Yes
Intel TSX-NI = Yes
Intel 3 = Yes
Idle State = Yes
Enhanced Speedstep = Yes
Thermal Monitoring = Yes
Intel Small Business Advantage = Yes


OS Guard = Yes
Execute Disable Bit = Yes

This CPU has the ability to create Ciphers for encryption better than ever before. (Which does protect you).

Has Native Hardware/CPU Support to protect Malicious software/programs in Memory Addresses. (It protects the Kernel)

Intel Boot Guard = Yes
Intel OS Guard = Yes
Conflict Free = Yes

VMCS Shdowing = Yes

Identify Protection Tech = Yes

Integrated Memory Controller = DDR4 has higher performance via prefetched algorithms, lower latency, and higher memory bandwidth than any prior generation.

Gives higher transfer Speeds (And speeds in general) at lower power.

The DDR3 to DDR4 step is a huge one with this Chipset Generation.

It's a Great Chip, really the only issue right now is how New this generation is at the time of this review and how difficult it is to get these chips.. Quite limited at the moment. Prime Time to upgrade would be Q1 of 2016+ imho.

Cons: Wit this particular Chip -- The price is quite fair, and given it's performance vs say a 4 series i7 .. at i5 levels,.. it's hard to find Cons with this particular Skylake 6600K.

Other Thoughts: If you are waiting around for a different 6th Gen Chip.. And have a few months patience.. Wait for what you want. If you want the latest technology (Generation) in a new build, or are building machines like I am (Built 2 of this chip today) this is the way to go over going to a previous Generation or Two prior, imho.

NVIDIA GIFT Holiday Bundle

5 out of 5 eggs Nice deal. 12/08/2013

This review is from: NVIDIA GIFT Holiday Bundle

Pros: In this holiday bundle I received two GREAT games.. not silly games that you won't play.

It came with Assassins Creed Black Flag, and Splinter Cell.

Both are $60 games, that are popular franchises.

I assume this is something you can purchase for the $109 pricetag. I received it as a free gift with the purchase of a graphics card.

So a free bundle with $120 worth of GOOD games is super special, and unexpected.

Cons: Not really a con.. but:

When dealing with Ubisoft online with the codes -- it's a little confusing. The code you get has to be input at X place, then you get emailed another code that is input at Y place.. etc. The code you receive is not just THE code used to activate the game.

Not a big deal, just took me a minute online to figure out the order of things.

Other Thoughts: If free -- well, it's a great gift.. something you will use if you game.

Now $109.99 for two games that are $59.99 each. I suppose you save $10 -- But if you search around you could probably find a better deal on the games than BUYING this for full price. I believe this is simply meant for gifts/promo's when buying other hardware and not so much to purchase individually. Thus the price point simply represents the value of the games you are receiving.

This review is from: NVIDIA GIFT Batman Arkham Origins
