I hope my 6700k clocks a lot better, if I get the measurements sorted for running the skylake chips naked I'll be happy.
My first i5 was from Malaysia second from Vietnam. They might have switched manufacturing locations later on in life and possibly have poorer silicon?
Back in the stone age, we used to discuss batch numbers, and whether your Intel cpu was from Malaysia or Costa Rica.
Looks like the Vietnam plant is one of the newest fabs:
My yet-to-be-tested 4790K is a Vietnam chip. As for poorer silicon, imo that depends more on luck of the draw, than what fab the wafers were produced at.
But who knows, maybe 'Nam chips are all currently duds, I'll find out if mine is, soon enough, lol.
