Now that I seem to have found a workaround for my Core i7 5775C Broadwell Linux issue that resulted in very frequent kernel panics, it's off to the benchmark races. Here are some preliminary Linux benchmark figures for this first socketed Intel Broadwell LGA-1150 desktop CPU with Iris 6200 graphics.

The Intel Core i7 5775C Broadwell CPU has four cores plus Hyper Threading, 3.3GHz base frequency, 3.7GHz turbo frequency, and a 65 Watt TDP. This LGA-1150 CPU features Iris Pro 6200 Graphics, which are Intel's most compelling integrated graphics solution to date available in a socketed CPU. It's still very difficult to find the Core i7 5775C available for purchase in the US, but the box price on it is expected to be around $370 USD.

If you are like I, you've probably been very curious to know how the Broadwell CPU with Iris Graphics perform under Linux even though Skylake is just around the corner. Since last week I've been working on getting out i7-5775C Ubuntu/Fedora numbers since receiving my review sample while hours ago I finally seem to have this CPU running stable as outlined in the aforementioned articles.

In the days ahead I will have a proper Linux review of the i7-5775C with comparisons to other CPUs on Linux and also looking closely at the Iris 6200 Pro graphics under different workloads and Mesa / Linux kernel revisions. However, for those impatient to see some numbers, I've uploaded some preliminary figures to

1507057-BE-IRIS6200E72 - Some standalone graphics results for the processor's Iris graphics on Ubuntu 15.10 with Linux 4.1 and Mesa 10.5.8. To see how your own system's graphics performance compares, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1507057-BE-IRIS6200E72.

1507057-BE-IRIS6200E72 - Standalone CPU-focused benchmarks of this socketed Broadwell CPU running Ubuntu Linux. There's x264, timed Linux kernel compilation, LAME MP3 encoding, and FFmpeg results to get started. To see how your own system's processor performance compares, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1507053-BE-COREI757780 to utilize our fully-automated, standardized, open-source benchmarking software.

Again, stay tuned to Phoronix as I'll start cranking out more Core i7 5775C Linux results in the days ahead. I also have a new MSI Z97 motherboard coming on Tuesday for checking out if that board handles this CPU any better than the ASRock and Gigabyte problems mentioned in the other articles. Stay tuned! If you appreciate all my Linux hardware testing work, consider subscribing to Phoronix Premium to make more of this work possible.
