Core i7-6500U


Description
The Core i7-6500U 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 2500 MHz as base frequency but it can reach up to 3100 Mhz under some conditions with a thermal design power of 15 W. About its cache memory, this CPU has 2x32+2x32 kB level 1 cache, 4096kB of level 2 cache and kB of level 3 cache.

The performance score in monothread tasks in mode 0 (non-optimized software) of the Core i7-6500U is 24896 while its multithread score in the same mode is 56665 points. If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode III optimized for AVX2), the monothread score is 48593 and the multithread score is 113090 points.
