Apple airpods: review

Do Apple’s AirPods sound great? Not really. But they’re about way more than playing music.
Let’s just get all the fun comparisons out of the way up top. Wearing AirPods is like wearing a toothbrush in your ear. No, it’s like your earbuds are melting down the side of your face. They look like tiny hair dryers! Tiny candy canes! Tiny bean sprouts! Tiny golf clubs

In truth, AirPods look like… Bluetooth headsets. In fact, they look like the Bluetooth headset Apple made for the original iPhone back in 2007. If you follow Apple’s design philosophy of making things thinner, simpler, rounder, and whiter over time, you could easily get from that to these in nine years.
If you’d prefer something a little more contemporaneous, they also look exactly like Apple’s wired EarPod headphones, minus the cable. Whether that’s weird or bad is up to you. I say they look both weird and bad
Looks aren’t everything, though, and the fact is AirPods look the way they do because of their most important feature: they have no wires. There’s nothing to break or tangle, nothing to plug in, nothing to get caught on a stranger’s backpack on the train every freaking day. Just sweet aural freedom. Sure, you might lose them, but that’s a you problem, not a headphones problem
The AirPods sit fine in my ears, actually better than the EarPods. They even stayed in while I ran. The battery lasts a little longer than the five hours advertised. In the six days I’ve had them, I’ve only had to charge them one time
The oddest thing about the AirPods isn’t how they look; it’s that Apple’s evidently not all that concerned with how they sound. Your $159 doesn’t buy you any better audio than you’ll get from the EarPods that come free in the box with your iPhone. I mean, look: they sound fine. Statistically, most people are fine with the EarPods, and they’ll be fine with the AirPods too. But if you’ve ever purchased a pair of headphones that cost more than $50, I’d bet they sound better than the AirPods. If you’ve spent more than $100, they definitely do
So what’s that premium pricing going toward, aside from no strings attached? For one, the microphone is fantastic. The dual-mic setup, along with Apple’s clever noise-cancelling tech that uses subtle vibrations to know you’re speaking, makes for one of the clearest remote-input devices I’ve ever used. Good riddance to Siri never hearing you, and to holding your headphone cable a quarter-inch from your mouth while you walk and talk.
More important, though, is the tight integration between hardware and software that Apple still excels at supplying. It starts from the very beginning: you take the AirPods out of their box, open up the lid to the dental-floss-dispenser case, and set them down next to your iPhone. A pop-up window appears from the bottom of your phone’s screen, asking if you want to connect your new AirPods. Of course you do! So you press the very large “Connect” button, and you’re done
From then on, as soon as you flip open the charging case and put the AirPods in your ears, a bright ding will let you know you’re connected to your phone. If you’re listening to music and take one bud out, it automatically pauses. Put it back in, and it starts playing again. (This is the only imperfect part of the equation, by the way—it works most of the time, but not all.) If you only have one bud in to start, it automatically shifts to mono sound. Double-tap on the headphones to invoke Siri. The AirPods will work as standard Bluetooth headphones with any device, but features like auto-pairing and Siri will only work with headphones that incorporate Apple’s new W1 chip
The AirPods will cut out for a split second if I put my hand in just the right spot or bury my phone a bit too far into my bag. It doesn’t happen often, and it is, sadly, still better than most other Bluetooth headphones. And I’ve never had it spontaneously disconnect completely, which is more than I can say for most AirPods competitors

Having Siri two taps away isn’t just the best thing about the AirPods. It’s the reason they exist. In some spots, they’re even too reliant on Apple’s voice assistant. Most headphones let you change volume or songs with gestures and buttons. With the AirPods, you have to either dig your phone out or double-tap on the bud, wait for Siri to stir from its slumber, say “Next song,” and wait again for Siri to do your bidding. Siri has gotten dramatically better in the last couple of years, and minimalism is great and all, but another swipe option or two wouldn’t hurt.
Of course, Apple could add more gestures with a simple software update. AirPods are, after all, a computer for your ears. Apple’s not the first company to try this approach; Bragi and Doppler have brazenly run down this same path. But Apple has something those two upstarts don’t: An entire ecosystem at its disposal. It’s easy to imagine Apple making the AirPods the centerpiece of how you interact with all your devices, particularly as Siri becomes more important. (And, hopefully, faster.)
Do you want to wear these AirPods all the time, though? Will you ever? If my experience so far is any indication, it’ll be a while before wireless earbuds of any kind are more than a near-futuristic novelty. And it doesn’t help that the AirPods look like two antennae sticking out of your ears.
Right now, you can get better-sounding wireless headphones for the same price or less. They’ll fit better, look better, work better. If you buy the AirPods you’re buying them for being really, ridiculously convenient, and not much else. And you can even get that for less, too, at least when the W1-equipped Beats X earbuds come out later this fall. (Though those are, improbably, even uglier than the AirPods.)
All that said, I’m really looking forward to what the AirPods become. They have the potential to be the kind of project that goes from accessory or hobby to critical piece of Apple’s future. The AirPods, above all else, are Siri machines. And just like Siri, they have a bright future—and a seriously awkward present

 Swisscoin: the way to the futher and how to make money from it

Swisscoin. That is one word that has been trending on the internet for the past few months. If you haven’t heard of Swisscoin as at now, then you must have either been playing on the internet or you just came back from an 8-month exile from the internet. For the serious-minded and those that know the kind of great things that can be done through the internet, Swisscoin is certainly not an entirely new thing

So what is Swisscoin? What’s it about? Why the uproar and serious discourse about it on the pages of the internet and among the business-oriented? In this article, I will make you understand what Swisscoin is all about, what it can be used for and how to use it.

Swisscoin is the future of Cryptocurrency!


What is Swisscoin?

In the simplest form, Swisscoin is a type of cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency is also known as digital currency, and involves the use of cryptology to create digital currency and control the flow of the currency.
The system of creating cryptocurrencies is complicated, and can be compared to the way the physical currencies we spend are made; we don’t know how they are made, yet we spend them. In the same way, you don’t need to know how cryptocurrencies which are virtual currencies are made, you just need to know how to get them and use them to your advantage, which is what I’m going to discuss in this article.

Brief History of Cryptocurrencies

The history of cryptocurrencies dates back to the ’90s, but it came to be known globally when Bitcoin was started in 2009. According toWikipedia, Bitcoin was the first decentralized form of cryptocurrency to be created; the ones created prior to Bitcoin were centralized like the physical currency we spend.
Swisscoin is a new form of cryptocurrency created by a Switzerland company in conjunction with other firms and partners from Germany in 2016. It is similar to Bitcoin, and was actually created as an alternative to Bitcoin due to issues with its (Bitcoin) capacity limit and currency design.
Though there are a lot of Bitcoin alternatives available on the internet right now, we are writing about Swisscoin because it has been found to be a reliable form of cryptocurrency as opposed to many others.

How does Swisscoin work?

Cryptocurrencies work on the principle of mining the units of cryptocurrency which are known as coins at a particular rate measured with a unit of physical currency (e.g. Dollars, Pounds, Euros, Naira, etc…)
This rate is usually very low at the beginning when the first batch of coins are being “mined”, and progresses to increase over time as it becomes more popular and demanded by a large number of people
Let’s take Bitcoin, for example. When it was first created in 2009, the coins were mined at the rate of $0.02 per coin. At that time, I’m sure many people disregarded the project and didn’t bother joining. But surprisingly by 2013, four years after Bitcoin was launched, those coins gained a value as high as $1,100, and some were even being traded at a rate higher than that
Now, imagine that you were one of those who bought the Bitcoins when they were being mined at $0.02, and you bought about 25,000 coins for $500. Then in 2013 you decided to sell all 25,000 coins. Let’s calculate
25,000 coins * $1100 = $27,500,000. (OMG!)
Whoa! Your investment of just $500 would have yielded up to$27,500,000. What are you thinking right now?
What of today, when Bitcoins are being sold at $700 per coin. If you had invested $500 for 25,000 coins at that time and somehow slept through 2013 to 2016, how much would your coins worth now?
25,000 coins * $700 = $17,500,000.
You would still make a profit of over 10000% of your original investme

So, how is Swisscoin a better alternative to Bitcoin?

According to the calculations above, I’m sure you would be asking why you should join Swisscoin instead of Bitcoin. Here is my answer.
The reality is that Bitcoin is having problems with their systems and the popularity is going down. Also, if you were to go and join Bitcoin now, you would have to purchase coins at the rate of $700 each, which is very expensive
Swisscoin is a new form of cryptocurrency, and that means that their coins will still be selling at a very low price. The platform was launched on the 4th of May, and they started mining their coins at the beginning of July, two months ago. Right now, Swisscoin coins are being mined at the rate of €0.1 per coin.
This is a very great opportunity for you to join the cryptocurrency trade while it’s still going at a low price. According to the law of demand and supply, the higher the demand for a product, the higher the price; and the lower the supply of an highly demanded product, the higher its price.
In a couple of years from now the demand for cryptocurrency is going to be very high, so it’s better to invest now that the coins are being mined at low cost, than to miss out yet again on another opportunity to get rich with cryptocurrency

How to make money with Swisscoin

Before you can make money with Swisscoin, you obviously have toregister an account on the platform.

Register an account with Swisscoin

Before you can register an account with Swisscoin, you must have a sponsor whose referral link you would use to register your own account.
Don’t have a sponsor? Don’t worry, I can be your sponsor. By registering an account through my referral link, you get 100 coins for free to give you a head-start
For register an account from Here
Now that you’ve registered, there are two ways to earn huge cash with Swisscoin. These are:
  • Trading educational packages and mining coins.
  • Earning bonuses through referrals.

Trading educational packages and mining coins

Swisscoin offers its members the opportunity to learn about the system of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology that is used in producing the coins, and earn money/coins while doing so.
This is done through the Swisscoin Academy where there are different levels of training, the lowest being Rookie and the highest (level 11) beingCrypto-Director. At each level, different packages are offered for sale at different prices, and you have to purchase a certain number of packages before advancing to another level
So how can I make money from this?
Through TOKENS. Tokens are used to “mine” swisscoins, and at the moment, you are given 1 token for every 0.1 euro you spend on the system. Also when you purchase an educational pack, you get one Splitwhich multiplies the number of tokens you get by two.
For now, one Token is used to mine one swisscoin. So you see the potential this system has. If you buy the cheapest pack which goes for €25, you get 250 tokens and one split, giving you a total of 500 tokens. This can also translate to, when you invest €500, you get 5,000 tokens and you also will get one split (a split doubles up your tokens), giving you a total of 10,000 tokens. This automatically translates into 10,000 coins, which you can save up for future trading when the cost of swisscoins goes up

Earning bonuses through referrals

Apart from purchasing educational packs and earning tokens and splits, you can also make money on Swisscoin just by referring your friends and family to join the platform. Through this, you can actually kill two birds with one stone; you show your friends the way to earn huge with Swisscoin, and you get paid commission for doing that.
Here is how it works.
When your referral purchases an educational pack, the cost of the pack is converted to Business Volume at the rate of 1:1, meaning when they purchase a €25 pack, you get 25 Business Volume (BV) units.
Now what can you do with these BV?
Each BV unit carries a cost of €0.08, so you get €2 for every €25 package purchased by your referral. Of course the rate gets higher the higher your referral goes in the Academy, and there is no limit to the number of referrals you can register through your referral link.
That’s not all. You also get some bonuses on your referral sales as you move upwards in the Academy

Team Bonus

When you get to level 2, you will qualify for team bonuses which guarantees you between 2 to 22 percent of the sales your referrals (team) make from the educational packages

Matching Bonus

When you get to level 3 in the Academy, you qualify for matching bonuseswhich guarantees you between 1 to 20 percent of the commissions your referrals (team) get from the sales of the educational packages

This is different from team bonuses in that you matching bonuses give you commission from your team’s commissions, while team bonuses give you commission from your team’s sales.

Apart from team and matching bonuses, you also qualify for other bonuses in forms of gift items like laptops, cash, house and wristwatch as you level up in the Academy. You could also gain entry into the Diamond pool where you have the opportunity of winning diamond coins.

Other Benefits – Peer-to-peer (P2P) International Money Transfers

Swisscoin also has a payment system (Peer-to-peer) that allows you to transfer cash directly to other Swisscoin traders without the involvement of any bank or transfer agencies, from the comfort of your mobile phones and computers. Join Swisscoin today to know what I’m talking about.

So, how do I withdraw the cash I earn through Swisscoin?

Every unit of currency you earn with Swisscoin goes into your Swisscoin wallet, and you can withdraw it using any of the below methods:
  • Direct transfer to your bank account.
  • Withdrawal via your Swisscoin Mastercard.
  • Reinvest in buying more coins.
The Swisscoin Mastercard is not yet available. It will be rolled out sometime in September.
Note that only 60% of your earnings would be available for withdrawal. The remaining 40% will be be automatically used to mine another set of coins, to ensure that you continue to earn with the system
Also, note that you don’t have to withdraw all your available funds. You can use part of your earnings to buy more coins and re-start the process to earn you even greater amounts of cash and bonuses.

How am I sure that Swisscoin won’t run away with my money like MMM?

The issue of money laundering and frauds is one of the things that prevents people from joining Multilevel Marketing (MLM) platforms like Swisscoin and Bitcoin. To checkmate this, Swisscoin has created a system known as Know Your Customer (KYC).
KYC is a system which allows you to know other Swisscoin traders on a one-on-one basis. It also uses other mechanisms to eliminate the risk of frauds and corruption. With Swisscoin’s KYC, you are safe

How to Get FRE 100 Coins

You are guaranteed free 100 coins when you join using my referral link. By the time SwissCoin goes trading for about €1 per coin, that will translate to a free €100. But you must use techlector as sponsor.
Even you don’t want invest right now, CREATE YOUR FREE ACCOUNT and get 100 COINS absolutely for free !!!

If you have any question(s), I will be here to guide you during the registration process and even after it.

So what are you waiting for?

Macbook Pro 2016 review

Finally! It's been an age since the MacBook Pro was handed a serious update, but now we've got a couple of new models, and it looks like they've been worth the wait. Yes, yes, it might be that innovative new Touch Bar that's got you really excited, but sitting beneath these Touch Bar-equipped models is this: the new, entry level 13-inch MacBook Pro.
No, it might not be quite as exciting, but the entry-level model is now arguably Apple's most compelling laptop. It's a machine that's answered all the issues you might have had with past Pros while one-upping its siblings. There's still more grunt under the hood than you're ever likely to need, but now the machine is slimmer than the Air and more affordable than the MacBook
Sure, the Touch Bar would be nice, but with a £1,449 asking price, should this be the Mac that you're willing to splash out on? We've had an early play to try and find out.

MacBook Pro 2016 Design: Slim, slick and suitably stylish

The iPhone 7 might have missed out on a radical redesign, but there's no such worries here. Apple's design geniuses have been hard at work transforming the MacBook Pro from an attractive if slightly oversized laptop into one of the best bits of kit we've ever seen. Seriously, it's hard to overstate just how much of an improvement this thing is.
OK, so it's not a hugely original design – it still looks like a MacBook – but Apple's classic minimalism has been pushed to the max. Having shed serious millimetres and grams, the new model lines up at just 1.49cm thick (that's 17% slimmer than last year) and a solid but easily portable 1.37kg in weight.
To put that into context, that's noticeably skinnier than the MacBook Air and just as light. Seriously, the Pro is smaller than the Air, the former benchmark for minimalist tech. It's not just on the mm and kg that this thing has been slimmed down either – reduced screen framing and a lack of wasted space around the keyboard means its overall footprint is miniscule.

No, it's not quite as tantalisingly tiny as the 12-inch MacBook, but its smooth, curvaceous, brushed-metal finish is effortlessly cool (especially in the new Space Grey colour scheme), and it's a million miles from the Pros of the past. Before carrying a Pro was like a training exercise, now the only chore will be the days you have to leave it at home.
So, what's the design downside? Well, part of this size reduction has been made possible by skimping on the connections. Here, Apple's taken its minimalist approach perhaps a tad too far. There's no SD card slot, fine, no traditional USB ports either, okay. What you do have, though, is a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack (take that iPhone 7 owners) and a couple of Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports. That's it.
All Touch Bar-incorporating Pros will have four of the multipurpose connections, and we're struggling to see why this entry-level offering couldn't possess the same array of ports. Either way you're going to need a lot of new compatible accessories and adaptors, but as a Pro machine, having just two connections – one of which will often be taken over by a power cable – just feels too limiting

Wow. That's our first impression of the MacBook Pro's new screen. The laptop's panel might not be anything groundbreaking on a resolution front, as there's still a stunning sharp 2560 x 1660 pixel Retina display in there, but the improvements Apple has made over past models is what really makes this screen shine
Lining up 67% brighter and with a 67% higher contrast ratio than past models, this panel really pops. Throw in a 25% wider colour gamut, and you've got a 13.3-inch display with true wow factor.
Whatever you're using the laptop for, be it picture editing, spreadsheet creating or even Netflix-binging, it will treat you to an eye-appeasing experience. Heck, giving added detail and depth to the images, it will even make your general web browsing and hourly Facebook and Instagram sessions more enjoyablMacBook Pro 2016 Features & Performance: The 
Okay, so the macOS Sierra-powered entry-level MacBook Pro is missing a key feature – the key feature actually – but its errant Touch Bar isn't a death sentence. Sure, if you opt for this version you're always going to wonder why and what if, but you're still going to have a seriously impressive, powerful machine of your own.
And if you're after a laptop with plenty of oompah, this has got it. There's a 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor that can be Turbo Boosted to 3.1GHz, and this sits alongside 8GB of RAM and an Intel Iris 540 graphics chip that's faster than past models. The result? Well, although we need more time with the device before passing final judgement, during our first day with the machine, everything we've thrown its way has been batted away with consummate ease

Yes, that's a notable step down on the basic Touch Bar model that rocks a 2.9GHz processor, but it's still more than enough to offer a beautifully smooth, seamless user experience whether you're pulling together a simple text doc or crunching major video files. Throw in a 10-hour battery life and you're in for a win.
We know style's always been a MacBook Pro standard. Power too. Sound quality, however, isn't necessarily something you'd associate with Apple's flagship laptops. That's just changed though, because this thing sounds great. OK, no, it's not going to put your home Hi-Fi out of a job, but for a laptop, its new stereo speakers with dynamic range are punchy and powerful. There's no unwanted distortion when you crank up the volume either.

MacBook Pro 2016 Keyboard and Trackpad: Welcome to a new age

Typing experience might not be the sexiest feature to fret over, but it can make a huge difference to your productivity. Fortunately, the new MacBook Pro offers our favourite typing experience on any machine we've ever used. A refinement on the MacBook-introduced butterfly-hinged keyboard, it's a joy to use. The mechanical feedback of each keystroke gives a sense of reassurance and fluidity. Without the Touch Bar the traditional function keys remain too.
Pair this with a Force Touch trackpad that's grown 50% over past models and you've got a collection of input options that will have you breezing through whatever you're working on. It's not all rosy though. The soft touch finish on the keyboard means it does quickly transform into a slightly grubby-looking mess of greasy fingerprints.
First Impressions

Given its size, this entry-level MacBook Pro feels like as much of an overpowered MacBook Air replacement as a halfway house between the MacBook and Touch Bar-packing Pros. The lack of the Touch Bar is a bit of a shame, sure, but this machine serves a purpose in its own right.
Ditching the exciting new touch interface might take some of the shine away from the machine, but it's helped keep it at a more manageable price tag. No, its £1,449 asking price doesn't make it an impulse purchase, but with its Touch Bar-equipped siblings cranking all the way up to £2,699 and the comparatively under-powered MacBook going for as much as £1,549, it's not actually that bad a deal.
The lack of extra Thunderbolt ports is annoying, yes, but it's answered issues and made major improvements elsewhere, namely size and screen. We can't wait to spend more time with it so stay tuned for our full MacBook Pro 2016 review coming next week
Karma GoPro review

We’re at the beginning of a major event in the world of drone photography.  Mark today on your real or metaphorical calendar, because there was before today and after today.  GoPro is doing something with its new model, Karma, that has not been done in the drone world before.

Go Pro Karma Review

The Karma is an entire system for capturing action or aerial footage.  It is meant to solve the needs of the intrepid photographer more than it’s meant to be just a driverless aircraft.  The company held its unveiling of the new drone in Nevada, and while many in attendance thought it was cool enough, I was pretty blown away by just how much there is to the thing.

It actually hits stores on October 23rd after a bit of a delay.  So let’s review what you might get if you spring for the $799-$1,099.

GoPro Camera Options

So, the Karma, an entire complex of vid capturing droneness, doesn’t exactly come with a particular camera.  What? Well, let me explain. 

GoPro Camera Example

The various camera options are the Hero5, the Hero Session, or attach your own, and that’s what determines where you land on the $799-$1,099 scale. 

Recording ResolutionPhotographyBattery
Hero 5 Black4k @ 30FPS
1440P @ 80 FPS
1080P @ 120 FPS
Hero 5 Session4k @ 30 FPS
1440p @ 60 FPS
1080p @ 90 FPS

So, as you can see, we’re not talking about a drone that happens to have a camera strapped on, but a chance to choose your camera for desired definition and overall quality, meaning that the focus is on producing video content itself. 

Each option will give you a different quality of video.

Versatile Video Modes With The Karma Grip

It’s important to know that this mega-kit comes with some things you sure wouldn’t expect in a drone.  It has aKarma Grip, a type of selfie stick that is shoulder mounted.  With this you can have a back-facing camera shooting your face as you ski a hill, skateboard, dance in Gangnam style, etc.  You can mount the the camera front-facing without the grip for that angle.  You can even use the drone strapped to your back to take dizzying and impressive video that way.

GoPro Karma Grip, Case and Controller

Karma Grip Specs

Length8" (20.5cm)
Battery Life105 Minutes
Weight0.52lbs (0.24kg)

Now, a person who has experience flying old-school model airplanes and who likes to do tricks with or just enjoy flying a drone may not be interested in some of those features and accessories at all.  This machine is all about capturing video, and it goes the extra mile.

Karma Drone Specs

Flight Speed35 mph (56kph)
Range (Distance)0.62 miles (1km)
Maximum Flight Altitude2.8 miles (4.5km)
Radio Frequency2.4Ghz
Folded Dimensions14.4" x 8.8" x 3.5"
Operating Dimensions12" x 16.2" x 4.6"
Weight2.2lbs (1kg)

gopro karma specs

So that’s what’s really exciting about the Karma.  While a traditional review of a drone is supposed to talk about ease of control and battery life and flight speed (and in fact, I will address those factors), that’s really the whole point—this is not a traditional drone. 

It goes so far as to include a backpack, which is a bigger deal than it might sound, since it is designed with little slots for each arm of the quadcopter.  Again, that shows how committed GoPro is to catering to the high-def, action video crowd.  It is interested in various features not central to flight itself.  Basically, the idea of all these capabilities in one should be pretty exciting to any action vid enthusiast.  

Flight Features Of The Karma

Getting into some features of shooting vid while actually in flight, one thing the Karma does is maintain a center focus while flying in a circle, which is a nice feature.  You can see how this would be very beneficial for real estate folks wanting to get panoramic views of their properties. 

People who dig themselves a lot can shoot themselves in this way, with the drone circling them. The Karma also has an auto-pan and a setting that tilts the camera upward as it flies.  Of course, you also do get the chance to watch video you’re shooting live.  Another nice little wrinkle is that the drone has lights on the end of each arm, two green and two red, indicating the front and back of the unit.

If you’re wondering about gimbals, whatever camera you choose will be mounted with a three-axis gimbal.  The stabilization is not half bad.  

Radio Controller Overview

The controls are a bit bigger than they need to be, but comfortable in a hand and populated with just a few simple buttons, one that launches the thing, one that turns the camera on, and one that controls the camera. And of course the screen.  You don’t need any other equipment, such as a smart phone, to operate it.  Overall—and I’ll elaborate coming up—the Karma is a pretty easy drone to fly.

LCD Screen Size 5 inches
Resolution1280x720 (720p)
Brightness900 nits
Battery Life240 Minutes
Radio Frequency2.4Ghz
Weight1.38lbs (0.625kg)

So, I took the Karma out for a few spins, trying out the various options I told you about above, such as the preset formations, etc.  I was out on a few rocky foothills, knowing if I crashed, we’d have a problem.  I got used to controlling the quadcopter first, not worrying about the camera.  I then went into the actual video aspects.  Panning and tilting the camera went smoothly enough—as I mentioned, you watch the video you’re shooting live, and I found the video never cut out and was nice and clear.

Frist 10 cores desktop cpu

You'd be forgiven for not noticing, but this time last year Intel debuted its 5th-generation Core architecture codenamed Broadwell. On the desktop, Broadwell kept the LGA1150 socket used by Haswell before it, with only two processors ever released: the Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C, with no Core i3 or any other models.
Broadwell was essentially a die shrink to 14nm from the 22nm process Haswell used. The most notable upgrade was made to the iGPU which we now know as Iris Pro Graphics 6200. Armed with 48 execution units, it trounced anything we had seen from Intel before, though the main reason for this was a new and unique 128MB eDRAM, otherwise known as the 128MB L4 cache.
Upon release, the Core i7-5775C cost about 10% more than the Haswell 4790K, offering no noticeable performance gains when paired with a discrete graphics card. Plagued by limited availability and weak overclocking headroom, Broadwell was quickly overshadowed by Skylake.
Just two short months later, the Skylake-based Core i7-6700K arrived on the scene and while it hardly showed earth-shattering performance over the then two-year-old Haswell processors, it provided many more options than Broadwell and thus largely shut the book on that series.
The desktop CPU market is quite strange at the moment and with things seemingly at a standstill for the past two to four years, we are well overdue for some excitement. Intel’s releases have been so underwhelming that they are still selling Haswell processors alongside Broadwell and Skylake.
Perhaps the most enticing processors to arrive in the past few years for the performance crowd were those of the Haswell-E range. The Core i7-5820K has been a popular choice among enthusiasts: at $390 it isn't much more expensive than flagship Skylake and Broadwell CPUs while boasting additional cores, cache, and potential performance. Furthermore, at the head of the Haswell-E family we find the 8-core 5960X, a $1,050 part aimed at power users.
Two years later, it may be time to say farewell. Intel has officially unveiled Broadwell-E, which consists of four processors covering 6, 8 and 10-core configurations. These chips differ quite a bit in terms of specifications and pricing, all the more reason to explore them in better detail.

Meet Broadwell-E: Hide Your Credit Card

We put the following table together in an effort to make it easier for you to compare the Broadwell-E processors alongside previous high-end Intel desktop processors:
Base Clock3.0GHz3.2GHz3.6GHz3.4GHz3.0GHz3.5GHz3.3GHz
Max Turbo4.0GHz4.0GHz4.0GHz3.8GHz3.5GHz3.7GHz3.6GHz
PCIe Lanes40404028404028

The base model Core i7-6800K is a 6-core processor supporting 12-threads with a stock speed that's set at a reasonably high 3.4GHz and can stretch as far as 3.8GHz depending on the workload. Priced at $434, the 6800K costs 12% more than the 5820K and on paper offers no real advantage, so that's a low blow for enthusiasts.
There is a second 6-core part called the 6850K which also features 6-core/12-threads, though it's clocked 200MHz higher. The key difference being the PCI Express lanes, which have been increased from 28 to 40. This is then a 5930K equivalent, except instead of setting you back $580, you'll pay a starting price of around $617
Moving up we find the 6900K priced at an incredible $1,089, which is more than you can expect to pay for the 5960X and for seemingly few advantages. The 6900K is clocked slightly higher out of the box, supports higher clocked DDR4 memory and offers the obvious advantages that come with a die-shrink, but otherwise there isn't much more to talk about here.
If you thought those first three premiums were rich, then you won't like what we have in store next. For reasons unknown, the 6950X has a $1,723 MSRP -- yep, you read that right. That means the 10-core model costs almost 60% more than the 8-core version yet you're only getting a 25% increase in core count.
This is an absurd price to pay and is only further stressed by Intel's own Xeon range. The company's server grade Broadwell-EP range launched in April, and with it came a number of 10-core processors. One of them, the Xeon E5-2640 v4, is priced at $939and while it isn't unlocked, it can still operate as high as 3.4GHz. This Xeon E5 chip can also be paired with a second one -- much like what we did with the E5-2670 on the cheap recently. This means it would be possible to build a 20-core/40-thread system for roughly the same price as the 6950X.
Not only that, but resident CPU/GPU expert Graham Singer (aka "dividebyzero") was quick to point out that roughly the same money could buy the Xeon E5-2680 v4, a 14-core/28-threaded processor operating at 2.4GHz to 3.3GHz that brings extras such as ECC support for example. Again, with the right motherboard it would also be possible to add a second processor down the track for 28-cores/56-threads. The only downside is the locked frequency and the more limited DDR4 memory support, which sees the official spec call for 2133 memory
All Broadwell-E processors officially support up to DDR4-2400 memory in a quad-channel configuration. This is a 13% boost over the Haswell-E processors' DDR4-2133 spec. That said, I haven't had any trouble running my 5960X with DDR4-2666 memory, so I'm not sure how much more headroom there will be with Broadwell-E.
The only other spec shared by all the processors is their thermal design power of 140w, the same rating given to the 5960X.
