I noticed that it's very quiet about this CPU(along with other EDRAM equipped skylakes) which I find strange because If I got the facts straight that CPU is actually the fastest gaming CPU on the market. Has anyone seen the benchmarks? I couldn't find any. If I'm not mistaken those CPUs can actually be overclocked via BCLK so it doesn't matter that there are only xeons available. While most workloads don't benefit from EDRAM games do. It can be easily shown with the 5775C that performs very well in games for its clock rate. 5775C is actually quite competetive with the newer skylake based 6700K that needs to be paired with a fast memory to pull ahead. (over 2400MHz) With a DDR3 1600 and a DDR4 2133 kits both CPUs perform similarly in games despite the broadwell's much lower clock-rate.

It turned out that they also ran benchmarks with faster memory kits for both broadwell and skylake but only at equal clocks of 4.2GHz which is actually as far as broadwell will go.

RAM at 1.6-2.4GHz for DDR3 and 2.4-3.2GHz for DDR4. Interesting results.

It is not socketed and OEMs have ignored Skylake GT4e entirely, so you will not find it outside of fairly specific custom orders.

Oh, because it is not socketed, you will not find proper BCLK BIOS for it even if you did find a board with it.

If it's not socketed, good luck getting one for love or money. Maybe as a complete system, but where?
