Intel now shipping 5th Gen Core-i5 and Core-i7 Broadwell desktop CPUs


After a long wait, it now looks like Intel has finally started shipping the first Broadwell desktop CPUs to OEMs.

As reported by WCCFtech, a number of OEMs have started to offer PCs powered by 5th Gen Intel Core-i5 5675C and the Core i7-5775C processors. Popular custom gaming PC maker CyberPowerPC has listed a new model named Gamer Xtreme Gxi320OS that is powered by an Intel Broadwell Core i7-5775C processor. Similarly, some other online retailers have started listing PCs powered by these two Broadwell CPUs as well.

Some of you will remember our sister site Chinese VR-Zone had published a report in March that claimed the i5-5675C and the i7-5775C will be the first Broadwell desktop CPUs to hit the market. As had been revealed back then, the Core i5-5675C features a base clock speed of 3.1 GHz and offers Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.6 GHz. The Intel Core i7-5775C on the other hand offers a higher base clock of 3.3 GHz and Turbo Boost speeds of 3.7 GHz. Both of these processors feature four processing cores but only the i7-5775C supports hyperthreading. The i7 chip has higher 6MB L3 cache as well, compared to 4MB L3 cache on the i5-5675C. Both CPUs have a 65W TDP and offer Intel Iris Pro 6200 integrated graphics.
