Core i7-6700HQ


Description
We need your help: we don't have results in all modes. If you have a i7-6700HQ and want to help us to complete the stats, you just have to run the benchmark at stock frequency (no oc) in modes FPU, 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 i7-6700HQ is a cpu manufactured by Intel that was released on . This model has 4 Skylake-H cores with HyperThreading, runs at 2600 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 45 W.

The i7-6700HQ 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.

AVX optimized benchmark
The benchmark in mode II (AVX) is optimized to used 256 bits registers beside the first version of the Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX). The first AVX compatible CPU was released in 2011.

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.
