Core i7-6600U


Description
The Core i7-6600U 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 2600 MHz as base frequency but it can reach up to 3400 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, 2x256kB of level 2 cache and 4096kB of level 3 cache.

The performance score in monothread tasks in mode 0 (non-optimized software) of the Core i7-6600U is 26248 while its multithread score in the same mode is 46013 points. If we talk about optimized software, in its highest mode (mode III optimized for AVX2), the monothread score is 51162 and the multithread score is 110783 points.

There are some CPU models pretty similar to this one like the Intel Core i5-7300U, the Intel Core i7-6560U and the Intel Core i7-6500U amongst others. To know the complete list and how similar are they, please go down on this page.
