Dont buy it here and also wait for 7th gen

This one is so muvh expensive. For buying this in Flipkart better Buy from Amazon.in it is 18k rs only. And offline you can get it for 17k rs. Instead of buying this wait for 7th gen Kabylake. It’s coming out on 5th of Jan 2017. 7th gen will be having a better option for overclocking and also stable than the present 6th gen (skylake)

Never buy from flipkart

I got a wrong product again. The seller thinks the costumers are dumb and don’t no anything about technology. Before this I ordered a 16 gb ddr4 ram but I got ddr3 there was no return available I called Flipkart than they did a return. And know I ordered processor 6600k but I got 6400 processor

  • Core i5-6600K

Processor Core i5-6600K Marked by the manufacturer as: BX80662I56600K.

Number of cores — 4, manufactured according to 14 nm process technology, Skylake architecture.

Core i5-6600K base frequency — 3.5 GHz. The maximum frequency in Intel Turbo Boost mode reaches 3.9 GHz. Please note that the Intel Core i5-6600K cooler must cool processors with a TDP of at least 95 watts at stock frequencies. When overclocked, the requirements increase.

Thanks to the built-in N/A video core, the computer can work without a discrete graphics card because the monitor is connected to the video output on the motherboard.

Price in Russia

Do you want to buy Core i5-6600K cheaply? Look at the list of stores that already sell the processor in your city.

Benchmarks Intel Core i5-6600K

Gaming speed

Performance in games and similar applications, according to our tests.

The performance of 4 cores, if any, and performance per core has the greatest impact on the result, since most games do not fully use more than 4 cores.

The speed of caches and working with RAM is also important.

Speed ​​in office use

Performance in everyday work such as browsers and office applications.

The performance of 1 core has the greatest impact on the result, since most of these applications use only one, ignoring the rest.

Similarly, many professional applications such as various CADs ignore multi-threaded performance.

Speed ​​in heavy applications

Performance in resource-intensive tasks loading a maximum of 8 cores.

The performance of all cores and their number has the greatest impact on the result, since most of these applications willingly use all the cores and increase the speed accordingly.

At the same time, certain periods of work can be demanding on the performance of one or two cores, for example, applying filters in the editor.

Data obtained from tests by users who tested their systems with and without overclocking. Thus, you see the average values ​​corresponding to the processor.

Different tasks require different CPU strengths. A system with few fast cores and low memory latency will be fine for the vast majority of games, but will be inferior to a system with a lot of slow cores in a rendering scenario.

We believe that a minimum of 4/4 (4 physical cores and 4 threads) processor is suitable for a budget gaming PC. At the same time, some games can load it at 100%, slow down and freeze, and performing any tasks in the background will lead to a drop in FPS.

Ideally, the budget shopper should aim for a minimum of 4/8 and 6/6. A gamer with a big budget can choose between 6/12, 8/8 and 8/16. Processors with 10 and 12 cores can perform well in games with high frequency and fast memory, but are overkill for such tasks. Also, buying for the future is a dubious undertaking, since in a few years many slow cores may not provide sufficient gaming performance.

When choosing a processor to work with, consider how many cores your programs use. For example, photo and video editors can use 1-2 cores when working with filtering, and rendering or converting in the same editors already uses all threads.

Data obtained from tests of users who tested their systems both with overclocking (maximum value in the table) and without (minimum). A typical result is shown in the middle, the more filled in the color bar, the better the average result among all tested systems.

Compare

Benchmarks

Benchmarks were run on stock hardware, that is, without overclocking and with factory settings. Therefore, on overclocked systems, the points can noticeably differ upwards. Also, small performance changes may be due to the BIOS version.

Performance

Cores The total number of physical cores. 4
ThreadsNumber of threads. The number of logical processor cores that the operating system sees. 4
Multi-Threading Technology With Intel’s Hyper-threading and AMD’s SMT technology, one physical core is recognized as two logical cores by the operating system, thereby increasing processor performance in multi-threaded applications. Missing
Base frequencyThe guaranteed frequency of all cores (P-cores in the case of the corresponding architecture) of the processor at maximum load. It is important to remember that speed and frequency are not directly related. For example, a new processor at a lower frequency may be faster than an old one at a higher one. 3.5 GHz
Turbo Frequency The maximum frequency of a single processor core in turbo mode. Manufacturers allow modern processors to independently increase the frequency of one or more cores under low-threaded loads, due to which performance is noticeably increased. It may depend on the nature of the load, the number of loaded cores, temperature and the specified limits. Significantly affects the speed in games and applications that are demanding on the frequency of the CPU, but do not load all threads. 3.9 GHz
Free multiplier Allows you to specify any multiplier, which is convenient for manual overclocking. It’s worth mentioning that old-school multiplier or bus overclocking is a thing of the past. Yes
BCLK System bus frequency. Some motherboards allow you to achieve a good performance boost by slightly raising the bus frequency. Often this has a bad effect on the stability of the system. 100
CPU multiplier. The final CPU frequency is determined by the simple formula BCLK * CPU multiplier. Modern processors instantly change the multiplier of each of the cores, taking into account the type of load, temperature, consumption and settings in the BIOS. 35
TDPThermal Design Power is an indicator that determines heat dissipation in standard operation. The cooler or water cooling system must be rated for a larger value. Remember that with a factory bus or manual overclocking, TDP increases significantly. 95 W
tCaseMax Allowable IHS temperature (heat spreader plate, «cover»). 72 °C

Cache and RAM

L1 Cache First level cache. Modern processors use a multi-level cache. The first is the fastest, but the smallest. In the case of an L1 access and a miss, the L2 cache is searched for the next stage. 64K (per core)
L2 Cache Second level cache. Holds more data, but is slower. 256K (per core)
L3 Cache L3 cache. AMD created the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with a record-breaking L3 volume, which reduced the requirements for memory frequency and significantly increased the number of frames in many games. 6MB (shared)
Maximum RAM Amount of RAM that can be installed on a motherboard with this processor. 64 GB
Supported type of RAM The type of RAM depends on its frequency and timings (speed), availability, price. DDR4-2133MHz
Dual-channel
RAM Channels The multi-channel memory architecture increases data transfer speed. On desktop platforms, two-channel, three-channel and four-channel modes are available. 2
RAM bandwidth 34.1 GB/s

Video core

Integrated graphics core Allows you to use your computer without a discrete graphics card. The monitor is connected to the video output on the motherboard. If earlier integrated graphics made it possible to simply work at a computer, today it can replace budget video accelerators and makes it possible to play most games at low settings. N/A
GPU base clockFrequency in 2D and idle. 350 MHz
Max GPU ClockMaximum 3D clock. 1150MHz
Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) Supports Wireless Display technology using the Wi-Fi 802.11n standard. Thanks to it, a monitor or TV equipped with the same technology does not require a cable to connect. Yes
Supported monitorsThe maximum number of monitors that can be connected to the integrated video core at the same time. 3

PCI

PCI-E The PCI Express computer bus version. The bandwidth and power limit depend on the version. There is backward compatibility. Gen 3, 16 Lanes
(CPU only)
