Core i5-6500


Description
The Core i5-6500 is a cpu manufactured by Intel released on September 2015. This model is based on Skylake architecture which 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. Skylakes comes with AVX2 support in all mainstreams CPUs and AVX-512 in some high end models.

This model runs at 3200 MHz as base frequency but it can reach up to 3600 Mhz under some conditions with a thermal design power of 65 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 32+32 kB level 1 cache, 256kB of level 2 cache and 6144kB of level 3 cache.

The performance score in monothread tasks in mode 0 (non-optimized software) of the Core i5-6500 is 30937 while its multithread score in the same mode is 88943 points. If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode II optimized for AVX), the monothread score is 48007 and the multithread score is 147805 points.

There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the AMD Ryzen 7 1700, the Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 and the Intel Core i5-7300HQ amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
