Intel i5-6500 overview

  • 1Description

The Core i5-6500 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor from Intel is the sixth generation of the Core i5 product line that is now built using Skylake architecture. This processor features a base frequency of 3.2 GHz and, as with many Skylake technologies, it comes with features such as Intel Turbo Boost 2.0. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, the maximum clock rate this processor can achieve is 3.6 GHz. Additionally, this processor also features four cores with four threads in a FCLGA1151 socket and has 6MB of Intel Smart Cache memory. Having four cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the four threads allow applications to complete tasks sooner by working in parallel. This processor also supports up to 64GB of DDR4-1866/2133 MHz and DDR3L 1333/1600 MHz RAM, has integrated Intel HD Graphics 530, and has SSE 4.1/4.2 & AVX 2.0 Extensions, as well as a DMI3 bus type and a system bus of 8 GT/s. This processor includes a thermal solution (cooling fan) and is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.

    Intel i5-6500 reviews

    Core i5-6500 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice budget friendly, mid-range CPU. At the time (May 2016), the Intel i5-6500 was in my opinion the best bang-for-your-buck Intel Skylake CPU available. This model offers quad-cores, a respectable 3.2GHz clock speed, and a healthy amount of cache. It works well in my budget gaming PC. Unfortunately since it's an i5 model it does not support hyper-threading and since it isn't a 'K' model, it doesn't support much in the way of overclocking. Neither of those things are super important for most people, however. Overall a decent CPU at a decent price. I'd buy another if I needed to put together a similar machine again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and cool The Core i5-6500 is a good CPU for its price range. It runs fast, and stays cool with the included stock cooler. And it was easy to install. It can't be overclocked (I knew that before purchasing) but it does, however, have a turbo mode that jumps up to 3.6GHz when needed. And to those who are wondering: this is powerful enough to run the Dolphin emulator with ease. Which means you'll be able to play your Wii games at 60+Hz@1080p (tested with an AMD R9 380 2GB GPU).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CPU! Works great! Probably one of the best bangs for your buck. Absolutely crushes games like Skyrim, Overwatch, Diablo, and everything else I've thrown at it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Core i5-6500 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor Replaced my old Intel Core i7-720 CPU. Despite that it is only Core i5-6500 it works fast and stays cool, so less noisy. Totally satisfied.
    Date published: 2016-06-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliably powerful A great cpu for its price. If you are looking for a cpu that can be used for gaming but dont plan on overclocking, this is the cpu for you.
    Date published: 2016-09-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I like this processor, and I've had no issues with my computer yet. The installation for the actual processor was easy, but my aftermarket heat sink fan was another issue. I can't say anything on the included heat sink as I did not use it. This is all you need for gaming.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from i would buy it again I am very happy I upgraded to this processor , does what I want and I was quite pleased that it came with thermal compound on it already and that the fan was included
    Date published: 2017-05-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!!!!!! This CPU is very good for gaming. i bought it for gaming and have had no bottle-necks. i don't know if this is good for editing but for gaming it is very good.
