We've learned about Intel's upcoming Skylake CPUs in drips and dribbles over the past few months. This morning, there's another new nibble of information to chew on. Chinese site Benchlife claims to have the specs for ten Skylake-S desktop CPUs, including the unlocked K-series processors at the top of the range. Here are the juicy details:
|Model||Base clock (GHz)||Turbo clock (GHz)||Total cache||Cores (threads)||TDP|
|Core i7-6700K||4.0||4.2||8MB||4 (8)||95W|
|Core i5-6600K||3.5||3.9||6MB||4 (4)|
|Core i7-6700||3.4||4.0||8MB||4 (8)||65W|
|Core i5-6600||3.3||3.9||6MB||4 (4)|
|Core i7-6700T||2.8||3.6||8MB||4 (8)||35W|
|Core i5-6600T||2.7||3.5||6MB||4 (4)|
Interestingly, the range-topping Core i7-6700K reportedly has a lower Turbo clock than the current Core i7-4790K—4.2GHz versus 4.4GHz on the Haswell chip. The Core i5-6600K and Core i5-4690K are equally matched in the clock speed department, however.
All of these Skylake processors will use a new CPU socket, LGA 1151, and their memory controllers are said to support both DDR3L-1600 and DDR4-2133 RAM. Those specs, along with the 95W TDP for the K-series chips, fit with what we've heard about Skylake so far. Benchlife says to expect the CPU to debut at the Intel Developer Forum conference in August.
