Intel Core I7-5820K Review

The i7 processors from Intel® Core™ are able to access multiple applications at faster rates, unleashing incredible creation of digital media. Intel Core i7-5820K gets you to experience superb performance for all you undertake, which combines Intel® Hyper-Threading (Intel® HT) and Turbo Boost Technologies for maximized performance to match workload. This product comes with limited warranty of 3 years for parts and labor and consists of 6 cores and 12 threads. It operates at frequency of 3.3GHz and has 6 x 256KB L2 Cache, along with 15MB L3 Cache.

The device as well features PCI Express 3, 64-Bit support as well as Hyper-threading and Virtualization support. This processor utilizes thermal design power input of 140W, but lacks a cooling device. It measures 4.5 x 4 x 3.2 inches and weighs 4.8 ounces. Intel Core i7-5820 has appreciably-high initial cost of motherboard and RAM, as it requires pairing with new X99-based motherboard along with DDR4 RAM. Even then the processor does perform in amazing fashion which succeeds the X58 platform.

It handles without difficulty file compression, image processing, decompression and numerous other possibilities which are handled normally at a desktop. As well, the graphics card works in superb manner for desktop gaming. Users should ensure choosing a graphics card with care when keen to use the processor as computer gaming-base. Owing to limitation of PCIe lanes, the i7-5820 from Intel is better suited for a setup utilizing single graphics card or for those requiring solid and stable processor.

This processor as well exhibits decent over-clocking capability and it can run at 4.0GHz without necessitating increase in voltage. Do take note that the processor nonetheless comes without cooler. The new X99 platform from Intel provides top-notch expandability and performance, with Intel Core i7-5820K offering same-level CPU GFLOPS. This features 12 threads through Hyperthreading, 6 physical cores, L3 caches of 15MB as well as AVX2 and FMA advanced instruction sets, just like the i7-5930k, a more expansive processor. PCIE lans number is the only demerit, but this may not matter if using one or perhaps two GPUs.

Raw processing power of this processor is quite phenomenal, compared to quad-core CPU. Not much difference is evident in-between current-generation quad-core and Haswell-E when observed with an old i5-3570K setup. The system draws roughly between 70 and 80 watts while on idle mode, 240W on a CPU-intensive package like FFT and 300W on the game, Battlefield 4 multiplayer. All these are measured on kilo-watt meter. Great efficiency is evident while using this processor, with CPU power being quite amazing as well.

In summary, Intel Core i7-5820K is built in superb manner and features Thermaltake Chaser A71, EVGA GeForce GTX760 and Ripjaws 4 series 4 x 4 GB G SKILL. It also features an 840 Pro Series SSD of 256GB from Samsung and Corsair CX750 of 750W. Cooling of CPU may be conducted using closed-loop AIO cooler, when performing over-clocking.

  • The Good :
    Great stability, offers x16-support for single GPU, 6 cores
  • The Bad :
    Only has 28 lanes, which is not indicated in specifications, Costly
