Intel i7 6700T Processor Review

Posted: , By Patcoola

Intel’s energy efficient higher end processor reviewed. The Intel Core i7-6700T processor sports a lower clock speed than the i7-6700, slightly less performance, less heat, and almost half the power consumption. The i7-6700T is no push over as an i7, however, I feel the price is almost comparable to the faster i7–6700K with an after market heatsink.

I purchased the i7-6700T for its energy efficiency, and the fact that it is twice the speed of my old AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE. The i7-6700T is exactly what I hoped for, despite the high price tag. The energy saving is already showing. My i7-6700T did not come in a retail box, instead it arrived in a small clear plastic package. It didn’t include anything, such as a warranty paper, Intel case sticker, or heatsink.

This write up also focuses on the basics and most noticeable changes in technology and trends.
