In The News From around the web

TrueCrypt is one of the most popular pieces of software for disk encryption, and it includes a handy benchmark mode to test the capabilities of your processor.
The Core i7-6700K is an incredibly fast desktop processor that will be able to handle your gaming, media encoding and web browsing with incredible efficiency and at nearly the same performance level as those $1000+ processor still taunting us with their 8-core setups.

Intel "Skylake" Core i7-6700K CPU (Z170 Chipset and GT530) Review

Performance96%Quality including Design and Build94%General Features95%Bundle and Packaging89%Value for Money95% Overall TweakTown Rating94% The Bottom Line: Combine the IPC improvements with a 4GHz base frequency and some pretty awesome overclocking, and I think Intel has a winner on its hands with its new "Skylake" Core i7-6700K processor and Z170 chipset.
Combine the IPC improvements with a 4GHz base frequency and some pretty awesome overclocking, and I think Intel has a winner on their hands.
Now whether the 6700K can beat out that Devil's Canyon part remains to be seen.
We have heard of Skylake leaks - a.k.a. Skyleaks - for a while now, and the rumors point to an August release for these new LGA 1151 chips (sorry LGA 1150 motherboard owners)!

Rumor: Intel Core i7-6700K (Skylake-S) Benchmarks Leaked

by Scott Michaud |

If clocks are equivalent, this could translate well over a teraflop (~1.2 TFLOPs) of compute performance in addition to discrete graphics.
For someone who is interested in GPU compute, especially with Explicit Unlinked MultiAdapter in DirectX 12 upcoming, it would be nice to see GPUs be ubiquitous and always enabled.

i have one at idle or just web surfing the core clock is around 800mhz
its power consumption is 91w which seems good for energy saving and environment friendly

The lower-powered 6700T is going to be an interesting chip. Looks very capable for a 35w chip.
