Core i5-6500


Description
We need your help: we don't have results in all modes. If you have a i5-6500 and want to help us to complete the stats, you just have to run the benchmark in modes SSE, and validate the results. You don't have to register and the whole process will take less than 3 minutes per mode.

The Core i5-6500 is a cpu manufactured by Intel that was released on September 2015. This model has 4 Skylake-S cores , runs at 3200 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 65 W.

The i5-6500 has 4x32+4x32 kB of cache L1, 4x256 kB of cache L2 and 6144 kB of cache L3.

Sky Lake is also known as 6th generation Core. Include Thunderbolt 3.0, SATA Express and Iris Pro graphics with DirectX 12. It uses LGA 1151 socket for mainstream models and LGA 2066 for X-Series. Sky Lake comes with AVX2 support in all mainstreams CPUs and AVX-512 in some high end models.

Non-optimized benchmark
The benchmark in Mode 0 (FPU) measures cpu performance with non-optimized software. It uses the basic µinstructions from the i386 architecture with the i387 floating point unit. This mode is compatible with all CPUs so it's practical to compare very different CPUs

Monothread performance graph
Monothread performance graphics gives the performance vs time. They are useful to measure the time it takes to the CPU to reach the maximum performance.

Usually, CPU's performance will be steady during these tests but if it has a slow frequency strategy, the first samples will show a lower score.

Multithread performance graph
Multithread graphs measure the performance against a heavy load during certain time.

If CPU's TDP doesn't limit the frequency and the machine is properly cooled, performance should remain steady vs time. Otherwise, the performance score will oscillate or decrease over time.
