Intel Introduced Broadwell-H Processors, What are They?
A couple of days ago, during the Computex 2015, Intel officially introduced its Broadwell-H processors.
Among the unveiled processors are three i5 models and two i7 models. All the seven chips process within 65 watt thermal design power (TDP). By the same taken, Intel Iris Pro 6200 integrated graphics has been incorporated in all the processors.
According to Intel its new IGP Iris Pro 6200 will enchant gamers as it will enable them to play League of Legends at 1080p and high settings at 147 FPS. Similarly, they can run World of Warcraft at 1080p and 61 Frames Per Second with medium settings.
Three of the chips are BGA which means that they can’t be fitted in LGA socket. These chips, therefore, will be used by manufacturers. Two socketed and unlocked chips are the Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C. Their easy overclocking makes them a perfect choice for the buyers.
The most noteworthy features of both the Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C were their improved IPC gains and much faster graphics unit coming with 128 MB of DRAM cache. Both of the processors in discussion fit the LGA 1150 socket.
The Core i7-5775C is priced at $366 while the Core i5-5675 costs its buyers $276. The prices are relatively higher. The only rationale, which Intel has, for the increased prices is the revamped GPU, observes the news source.
