The new Intel mainstream processor series after Broadwell is Intel Skylake coming increasingly in larger steps and we know the technical specification details. What can we expect from new processors based on 14-nm process node?

The new  Intel Skylake processors will continue to be produced in 14-nanometer process technology, but they are based on an entirely new microarchitecture Skylake. Desktop models have to wear the official Codename Skylake-S and will be compatible with the new socket LGA 1151. The manufacturer plans to have the following versions: 2-core with a coefficient of TDP 35 and 65 W, 4-core with a coefficient of TDP 35 and 65 and 4 -Cores enthusiast with a coefficient of 95 W TDP (models with Overclocking – both multiplier and BCLK bus).

Processors are also equipped with a new generation layout, which is expected to support the latest API (DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.3 / 4.4, OpenCL 2.0) and the acceleration of the latest codecs (HEVC, VP8 and VP9). In addition, the manufacturer integrates a dual memory controller: DDR3L and DDR4 – can therefore you can expect the debut of new motherboards in the market supporting DDR3L memory, DDR4 or DDR3L and DDR4.

Intel Skylake Processors Launch Schedule Leaked


The roadmap which was spilled by Chinese sites gives an unmistakable understanding of the desktop series, which will be declared in IDF ’15 and will be dispatched in the market only after a month, in September. Alongside the desktop series, Intel is going to convey a huge upgrade to its whole versatility lineup, which is detailed  in the article.

The Skylake lineup incorporates a few SKUs, drive-in the desktop side would be the Skylake-S series, the Skylake-Y series would control the Core M based processors went for ultra low TDP gadgets, the Skylake-U processors will be offered in the more standard mainstream mobility devices while the Skylake-H series will comprise of the top of the line, execution centered portability chips that will incorporate both consistent HQ variants alongside Xeon processors for buyers requesting additional workstation abilities on developer laptops.

The lineup doubtlessly incorporates a considerable measure of processors and Intel will make Skylake their most speediest and biggest shift from their past era of processor lineup Codenamed Broadwell. Broadwell is going to dispatch on 2nd June 2015, amid Computex, however, postings of the processors alongside a couple Skylake-S series chips can be now found on a few online retailers. . The schedule was revealed by Benchlife, which goes into several details or the related Skylake series SKUs.
