Introduction

Intel Core i7-6700 introduces new standards of PC performance. The 6th-generation processor with built-in security offers amazing speeds and is packed with helpful features. This facilitates users to experience next-level productivity and high-resolution 3D gaming, faster frame rates and much better details compared to previous-generation processors. Any computer fitted with this i7 processor resumes its full functionality in a flash.

What is the overall performance ?

The i7 is fitted with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 that increases processor-frequency dynamically to a maximum of 4.2 GHz for applications which demand greater performance. Expect optimal speeds when necessary from this energy-efficient computer-engine.

Intel Hyper-Threading Technology enables each core of each i7 processor from Intel to multitask on two functions simultaneously for a total of 8 independent tasks (threads) in total. This avails parallel capability of processing that delivers better multi-tasking abilities with threaded applications. The processor also has shared cache of 8MB, which facilitates faster data-access. Cache is allocated dynamically and efficiently to match the requirements of each core appreciably, thereby reducing latency of using data on frequent basis.

In addition, the integrated Memory Controller of Intel i7-6700 Supports 2 DDR4-2133 and DDR3L-1600 memory-channels. It has 2 memory channels just as i7-4770k from Intel, which operate based upon the Intel Extreme Memory Profile or Intel XMP specification.

Again, similar to the i7-4770k processor, the i7-6700 from Intel features PCI Express 3.0 Interface but with ability of supporting a maximum of 8 GT/s as contrasted with 5GT/s of the i7-4770k. It enables users to gain fast access to all peripheral devices along with networking functions. A maximum of 16 lanes are available, whose configuration depends upon the design of motherboard utilised. They include 1x16, 2x8, or 1x8 as well as 2x4.

The Intel i7 as well comes with Quick Sync Video Technology. This function processes media at incredibly fast conversion-speeds for online sharing or portable media players. Expect to benefit from vibrant media too as the processor also features built-in, enhanced visual applications. These deliver a PC experience that is seamless along with rich HD gaming and Ultra HD 4K entertainment.

Conclusion

Intel Core i7-6700 carries a warranty of 3 years for parts and labour and its recommended price ranges between $312 and $303. Users of this powerful processor get to experience images of high definition and resolution for mainstream gaming of immersive nature. Another strategic advantage of this processor is the Intel HD Graphics 530 that offers a dynamic frequency of graphics ranging up to 1150MHz.

  • The Good :
    ultra-fast gaming experience, multiple DDR3L and DDR4 memory channels, superb Intel HD graphics 530
  • The Bad :
    relatively costly, inferior to the i7-6700K in certain aspects
Our score:
4 / 5
