Broadwell comes at a very weird time for consumers as well. We have heard that Intel could be launching their Skylake processors and 100 Series chipset at Gamescom in August. Skylake will be the “tock” in Intel’s release schedule. So consumers could get Broadwell with a 9 Series motherboard or just wait a little bit for a Skylake processor with a 100 Series board. Having just a few months between launches does not give a lot of time for Intel to really push Broadwell or even get it out into the channel. As of writing this it is quite hard to find Broadwell Desktop processors at major online retailers. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship processor in the Broadwell desktop processor line, the i7-5775C. This quad-core processor has a base CPU frequency of 3.3 GHz with a turbo boost up to 3.7 GHz. While this might be slower than the 4770K it achieves this with far less power and has much more powerful integrated graphics.
