Intel is going to redesign its desktop platform which will be conveyed in Q3 of 2015 that incorporates the Skylake platform that will highlight new Core i7 and Core i5 processors for consumers and enthusiasts on the Intel 100-series chipset, including the Z170, Z150, Q170, Q150, B150 and H110.

In the product portfolio of Intel Skylake Processors the Core i7-6700K will be the leader processor, we have already seen some performance numbers and also comparison between Intel Core i7-6700K  Vs Intel’s present Core i7-4790K “Devil’s Canyon” Processor. As it shows up, Intel’s expected lead chip for enthusiasts will be up to 29.1% faster than Core i7-4790K. Now the newest benchmark as shows the Overclocking potential of upcoming flagship and we can say that Overclocking on the unlocked chips will be more impressive than ever.


The foregin media HKEPC is first  to report an overclock on the leader Skylake processor. Their Chief-Reporter, Lam Chu-Kui received a sample of processor and Overclock it to amazing clock speed of 5.2 GHz on the Skylake processor yet there’s something else entirely to this overclock than only a knock in clock frequencies which we will get to in a brief moment. To start with, it ought to be specified that the upcoming Skylake-S Unlocked processors which incorporate the Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K are the first processors in the lineup that launch on fifth August and will be combined with a few Intel’s Z170 chipset motherboards that will be accessible on the same date (really some are now accessible on retail). These chips will be the successor of the Devil’s Canyon based Core i7-4790K and Core i5-4690K.

Taking a fast look at the lead Core i7-6700K CPU, we are taking a gander at a quad Core processor with 8 threads which demonstrates a multi-threaded design. The chip includes 8 MB of L3 reserve and has time rates kept up at 4.0 GHz base and 4.2 GHz on turbo boost. The chip will support DDR4 2133 MHz memory and DDR3L 1600 MHz memory. The general specs aren’t vastly different than the Devil’s Canyon Core i7-4790K which had same center setup, 4.0 GHz base and 4.4 GHz support yet a slower iGPU (HD 4600) with 20 EUs and 1250 MHz help clock. The main changes have been featured as micro-architecture improvements which leads to gain in IPC (Instructions per clock cycle) and efficiency (performance per watt) on a 14nm process.
