Intel has officially launched its Skylake NUC desktops. These of course are based on the company’s 6th generation Core “Skylake” processors. There are two main models, but each will have two choices of chassis design. The first is the NUC6i5SY, based on the Core i5-6260U processor.
We have not heard that much about Intel’s upcoming Broadwell-E lineup, but now we have some pretty impressive details! Broadwell-E will be the next-generation high-end desktop (HEDT) processor lineup from Intel.
It looks like Intel has started selling its first complete NUC mini-PC, not a barebones unit. The unit is the NUC5PGYH and is priced at $255. The unit includes a Pentium N3700 “Braswell” SoC board, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of SSD storage.
Microsoft has recently acquired Havok Physics from Intel. It is the industry’s most popular in-game physics API. Microsoft plans to add the Havok IP to its existing platform and tools including DirectX 12, Visual Studio, and Azure.

Intel is getting closer to releasing their Skylake Purley-powered Xeon processors. Some of these new processors will feature 28 CPU cores, and with Hyper-Threading that means you will have 56 threads of CPU power!
We haven’t heard that much about Intel’s HEDT (high end desktop) processors in a while. A new report from BenchLife suggest that Intel will be launching their flagship Broadwell-E HEDT processors in Q1 of 2016. The Broadwell-E platform is comprised of X99-based motherboards and 6-8 core processors.

Intel has expanded its 6th generation Core “Slylake” processor lineup, adding seven new desktop processors. All of these processors are built on the LGA1151 package and work on motherboards that are running the company’s 100-series chipset. Intel has added the i7-6700, i5-6600, i5-6500, i5-6400, i3-6320, i3-6300, and the i3-6100. The Core i7 and i5 models are quad-core, while the Core i3 models are dual core.
Intel’s flagship Skylake processors (Core i7-6700K & Core i5-6600K) processors were launched earlier this month at Gamescom. When they were released Intel actually did not show us or anyone the actual die layout of the chip. Now that IDF is happening Intel has released these documents giving us more information about the “Slyake-D” silicon. On main difference between this and “Haswell-D” is that it is much smaller.
